Our white plastic sensory brush is an inexpensive option for those who are starting a brushing program. They have been used for years to help people with sensory processing disorder, autism, and tactile challenges. This item is inexpensive yet durable. They work well in the clinic or home.
Use them to help with children who are sensitive to touch. Use them as an alerting activity to prepare students with special needs for learning. They are great for those who enjoy brushing and deep pressure touch. For those who will be using a brushing program for several months, we recommend also purchasing the optional snap on handle.
We also offer a large selection of sensory toys and tools. Please check out our fidgets, calming vibration items, swings, and tactile items. Unfortunately, we cannot answer specific questions about administering a brushing program. If you have specific questions, it's best to speak with a trained occupational therapist.

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!
