This is a list of some of Evelina's things that we've found useful for her in therapy, play and life. Some of these are affiliate links and we may make a few pence if you purchase by clicking on these links. Thank you!
Electric heat pad - warms up really quick. 3p an hour to run (2022)
Evelina loves this in her stander. It's nice and light for her to do herself
This lets Evelina lean forward safely to splash her legs. We bought size L (Evelina is 3.5yrs & 11.3kg)
Evelina uses this table all the time, especially when travelling, it tilts and is height adjustable.
This bounces and plays music - Evelina loves it.
Recordable and super easy to press. We record the last line of a nursery rhyme on this for Evelina to finish the song
This makes a lovely noise and we practice 'ready steady go' and 'more' with it
We call it the space ship! Evelina loves it
These are ace! Really squishy, perfect size for Evelina's little hands. Clean 'messy' play
I switched this myself with a bunny from Amazon. How to post here
How lovely are these lights! You can change the speed and colours and isolate the space colour or laser.
I chose black for Evelina's vision. This works great on the Squiggles but also will be able to go on her pushchair and be used for travel.
6 colours, 45 seconds recording time, removable cover to add pictures. Sensitive to touch and works in corners unlike TalkTile
We used this for elevated tummy time for Evelina but it's great for reflux
Evelina loves the peanut ball. This one is small and ideal for her age. We do loads of different physio on it from assisted crawling, high kneeling, bouncing, vestibular... the list goes on
This we wrap with a sling to lift Evelina's legs and turn it into an indoor swing. We wrap a scarf around the back straps for head support
Great for assisted tummy time, propped side sitting and loads more in future
We have two cameras and can do a split screen on the monitor. Great help for when Evelina turns so we can check for seizures
These small, squishy little beads are great for exploring and vivid colours too
These are ace and are used every single day for each set of meds and storage of pre made up meds
We use these for syringes, bottles, meds, tubes, basically anything medical and they're huge!
Not as light to press as switches but still great. Two noise settings and flashing lights. Lots of fun!
Evelina loves this one! So fascinating to watch too.
For switch adaptive toys. Great colours available and really smooth to press
This is great for reaching as it spins easily but we also do 'choosing' and 'more' with it
Great for vision work in the dark, Evelina loves these
This is the luxury playmat from Totter and Tumble and it's fabulous. Wipe clean, reversible and so springy.
We bought this for our holiday and Evelina had a little nap on it at home! She approves and it folds up so small for air travel
We started to use this as Evelina had an oral aversion and it allowed her to try liquids without having anything in her mouth
We use these for Evelina's Snowdrop programme. They are great sensory brushes for making Evelina hyper aware of her limbs
Evelina loves this as it's instant feedback when touches and great for light work for her CVI
Evelina has an epilepsy pillow with three dimensional fabric and a 10mm wall of air. Highly recommend
A portable, postural support seat. Evelina is able to go in a swing at the park in this and a shopping trolly. It attaches to regular seats so makes going out with seated support easier for her
Helps increase oral awareness and motor skills needed to make sounds
This cup teaches sucking and the special valve keeps liquid at the top of the straw
We use this as a visual tracking aid with Evelina but she also really likes to reach for it as it is encased, so safe
This was a gift from a friend and Evelina loves it. Lights up and plays music to the touch and she holds the little arms
These are a great distraction for Evelina when she's on the changing mat and she'll try to reach for them
Evelina looked up for the first time with this. It's very calming and she loves watching the fishes
This is so lovely and soft and I get asked about this one a lot
We also used this for Evelina for sensory play and put it on a table in front of her when she had bad reflux
Great for sensory play. Evelina loved to feel this. NOTE: it's 3+ as dangerous if ingested but E doesn't put anything in her mouth but just to note to be extra careful
Evelina loves this play gym. The loops are big enough to get her hands in and hold nicely and she liked pushing the beads down the side
Evelina has a Basti at home but it's too big to travel with so we use this one
My go to for everything but mostly you can make a great syringe clip on the side of the Triton during feeds
This is great for encouraging Evelina to look up during tummy time - but also great for checking she's looking the right way during physio
Evelina finds this easy to press and it lights up, spins round and plays music!
This is a crib arch but it has great clasps so we can put it across Evelina's buggy
