50 Gift Ideas for the Autistic or Sensory-Seeking Child

Every December, I get bombarded with requests for suggestions for my gifts for my autistic and sensory-seeking son.

He doesn’t have an interest in the same toys and objects that many neurotypical children the same age do. It makes it challenging (even for people who know him very well) to find gifts that he will actually enjoy.

Keeping in mind that not all sensory-seeking or autistic individuals are alike, here is a list I have created of some gift ideas for the autistic or sensory-seeking child in MY life, to help you shop for yours this holiday season.
