project ideas for sensory changes in the older adult

project ideas for sensory changes in the older adult include activities that use the five senses:  vision, hearing, taste, smell and touch.

“Music therapy helps promote active listening. Hypnosis and biofeedback are sometimes used, along with psychotherapy, to help those with SID, particularly older patients.” - http://www.healthatoz.com/healthatoz/Atoz/ency/sensory_integration_disorder.jsp

While there may be many toys for children to create projects that stimulate sensory integration, the adult, on the other hand, will have to look for “older” toys or projects that help with sensory changes.

projects may include food activities such as cooking.

Swinging or other fun or recreational-type activity

Shopping

Eating out

Music

Math, reading and writing

Drawing, painting, coloring

Nature experiments

Visits to park settings or the outdoors

Photography

Exercise such as swimming

These types of activities stimulate sensory changes in the adult.  “Lesson Plans” or “recreational projects” can be custom-made for each individual case, from the young adult to the elderly.  Because autism required step by step methods, that is, one skill at a time, it is best not to overwhelm learning by requiring too many skills to be learned at one time.
