Finding Balance With Asperger's: The Pressure of a Sensory Sox Body Sock is Calming and Offers Other Sensory Benefits

Thank you to the Therapy Shoppe for providing a complimentary Sensory Sox bodysock sample for us to base this review upon. All opinions expressed are my own.

The Therapy Shoppe long ago became one of my favorite online stores for therapy supplies and I have wanted a Sensory Sox for my son ever since I saw it. Therapy Shoppe was kind enough to send one to us and it is everything we had hoped for.

The Sensory Sox body sock is made of super-stretchy Lycra, so it conforms to one’s body. It is a great tool for offering SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) kids calming, deep pressure as well as spatial and body awareness. They provide great tactile input for kids who usually lack in this area. Sensory Sox are used by Occupational Therapists for kids with sensory integration challenges, which can include kids on the spectrum.

My 6 ½ year old son, Quinn, has Asperger’s and all the sensory challenges that go along with it. He really loves his Sensory Sox because it gives him his own little “hideout” when he feels like he needs to get away. He loves the pressure it offers him when he climbs inside, but he also loves to stick his head in and make it like a little pod. When he’s feeling overstimulated, it really helps calm him down and get him back in control of his body. This has been a highly useful tool in our home and we are so glad to have it.

You can purchase Sensory Sox on Therapy Shoppe’s website, It is priced by size, for children 3-5 years old and up to children 12 years up to adult size, and the price ranges from $36.99-$51.99.
