3 year old Elijah from Cambridgeshire has significant sensory issues which affects his every day life.
His mum Penny wrote "My son has ASD, sensory problems and a splintered profile. Currently his therapists and I are desperately trying to help Elijah find a way to relax and sleep. He is extremely sensory sensitive and is non-verbal. He rarely sleeps and its really affecting him and myself. Being a widowed parent means there is no one here to share all those waking hours. Elijah has poor body awareness and needs help to feels his legs, arms, joints and head. He loves the squeezy machine during OT sessions and it has been suggested this could help him regulate his body if he could do this at home. we have noticed he becomes very relaxed inside the sensory room where there is little light, a bubble tube and the room has lots of heavy white mats. It is the only place he will flop back and relax. I am desperate for some to help my son get a good nights sleep for him to be able to self regulate and have more focus."
