Stay Calm: A Waiting Sensory Box- was designed for those times that you need just a few minutes to stay calm and relieve some anxiety. It maybe waiting in a doctors exam room; during a dental cleaning or counseling session; Maybe during a short medical procedure like an EEG. Anytime that hands need to be kept busy and distracted and anxiety is running high. Why not just one item?
Why do I need a Sensory Box with several items? Everyone's needs are different. What you find calming, someone else may find irritating. Having a variety of items that feel different allows users to find the "just right" item. The one that their nervous system responds to and finds satisfying. Once a "just right" match is discovered, similar items can be tried or the user may request the exact same item again and again.
Please note that from time to time the exact items in the set you receive may vary slightly, but the sensory feel and value of the item will be the same. Any item can be re-ordered separately.
