We have been doing Zoom sessions now for several weeks and I am pleasantly surprised how well they are going. We use items such as painters tape, pillows, stuffed animals, and furniture to create obstacle courses and fun games my child enjoys and benefits from sensory-wise. Other than the actual sessions themselves, the best part is that we now have permanent access to the obstacle courses and games created in sessions. This has been very helpful as we continue to practice social distancing and are mainly confined to our home. My son loves teaching his little sister the new games and sharing his obstacle course creations with his dad at the end of the day. I feel so grateful that we can still keep our weekly Monday morning sessions and my son can get his sensory needs met in the comfort of our home.
