Slugs & Snails Tights & Sensory Processing Disorder

It's been a long while since I came on and posted! But I wanted to come and talk about something that could help other parents of children with Autism/Sensory Processing Disorder.

As you will know if you've followed our journey, my youngest son Bee was diagnosed with ASD is August and within that diagnosis he also struggles quite badly with sensory processing disorder.

How SPD can affect people can vary widely but for Bee it means he is quite hands on and likes being squeezed, touched and thrown around a lot. He loves giving tight cuddles and squeezing hands but dislikes light pressure or his hair being touched.

One thing we have discovered recently is he loves wearing his Slugs and Snails tights - I'm guessing it's because he feels like he is being hugged by them and they also leave no gap under clothes where socks usually would do they avoid rough edges (something that doesn't feel rough to us can to someone with SPD)

I would recommend anyone with a littlen with sensory issues similar to Bees to try Slugs & Snails tights to see if it would help them.

Slugs & Snails are made of organic cotton and are flexable, soft and durable! 

We love using ours, especially when we go out and about (Bee stays in his pushchair) they keep him feeling warm and safe.
