Sensory Brushes: An important part of an autism sensory diet!
The white plastic sensory brush is an inexpensive option for people working with children or adults with sensory issues. A brushing program is designed to provide tactile stimulation and deep pressure. These sensory brushes are inexpensive, durable, and ideal for clinic or home use.
Sensory brushes have been used for years to help people with sensory processing disorder, autism and tactile challenges. For those who will be using a brushing program for several months we recommend also purchasing the optional snap on handle.
For specific questions about a brushing program or the Wilbargar protocol, it's best to speak with an occupational therapist or therapist trained in the Wilbarger Protocol. This sensory brush is commonly called the "corn brush" or "Wilbarger brush" and is the original brush used with the Wiblbarger protocol.

I use these on my 4 1/2 year old son (non-verbal, autism spectrum & sensory processing disorder) and follow the Wilbarger protocol & it works great for him. It is very soothing to him for me to "brush" him. The brushes are sturdier than they look and hold up excellent! I also purchased the handle that you can pop on & off and that helps to keep a better grip on it. Great product & will purchase more when needed.
This is the brush that started it all - and there are no substututes unless you want to upgrade to the larger and more comfortable-to-handle Wilbarger brush. The business side of this brush is the same as the upgrade - and the best choice if you have many kids to serve.
My son has sensory integration issues, and gets a little disorganized and hyperactive at times. Using these brushes (following techniques shown to me by his occupational therapist) help get him centered and organized. Especially useful before bedtime or any time he's getting a little our of hand!
