How My Sensory Tools came to be...
Hi, my name is Anne. I am asked pretty often "How long have you been doing this?" Answer, for over 10 years.
To start, I was raising a son with autism. He's now an adult but was 7 when I started this journey. As I watched him struggle to communicate and regulate his moods, I became a volunteer at a behavior health center in 2011 as a way to seek answers. This decision propelled my journey to discover a way to support children with a medication free, stress and anxiety option. The answer was fidget toys.
At the time, there were limited resources, products and overall options available to those facing stress related behaviors and anxiety. Through the experience of working with children with autism, anxiety and other behavioral challenges, it was noted how fidgeting seemed to relieve some level of stress. Squeezing, pushing, poking, pulling, turning, watching or rubbing. I began the retail journey on-line, expanded into a resource center and 8 years later, opened a store.
In 2020, Covid propelled children of all ages and abilities to seek out new ways to relieve their stress and anxiety; being at home simply magnified it. Fidget Toys found on-line led them to visit My Sensory Tools where they could find most all of their favorite fidgets, all in one place.
Your purchase makes a difference. It allows us to provide toys and tools to foster care children, health care facilities and schools where sensory toys and tools are needed to ease stress an anxiety. We've also supported our military abroad. Thank you.
