Welcome to the Sensory Regulation Toolkit

When children are feeling dysregulated, they need a tool, a resource to help them – so that they can feel empowered to regulate themselves when they need to.  This resource pack is a great way to explore the sensory system in a methodical way and find tools that work for the child.


  • To explore various sensory tools and resources to identify those that activate and regulate their nervous system.
  • To compile a personalised list of sensory tools and resources that the child/young person finds effective in regulating their nervous system.
  • To engage in hands-on experiments and experiences to develop a deeper understanding of how different sensory tools impact their nervous system.

The Sensory Regulation Toolkit

The Sensory Regulation Toolkit is designed to enhance our ability to effectively manage and respond to sensory stimuli encountered in our environment. Sensory regulation encompasses the processes through which the brain organises and interprets information received from senses such as sight, sound, touch, taste, smell, interoception (internal organs), balance, and proprioception (awareness of body position and movement).

During periods of dysregulation, employing sensory tools can aid in reconnecting with our bodies, facilitating a regulated nervous system response.

This resource pack provides two essential activities aimed at assisting children and young individuals in identifying sensory tools and correlating them with emotional states. By offering accessible, hands-on tools, the toolkit empowers individuals to manage sensory challenges effectively when needed.

It is highly recommended to practice and integrate these activities consistently, ensuring they become ingrained habits over time. This approach involves not only identifying and using sensory tools but also reinforcing their application through ongoing practice, reference, and modelling.

By incorporating these strategies into daily routines, individuals can develop greater self-awareness and regulation skills, ultimately enhancing their overall well-being and ability to navigate sensory experiences effectively.  To learn more about creating sensory regulation toolkits, please consider watching:
