Sensory Strategies for Teens
*this post contains affiliate links. There is no extra cost to you, but will greatly help our family. Please read our disclosure statement for further details.
Our family has discovered that there are tons of resources for sensory strategies for young children out there on the internet, but it can be a different story when you are looking for resources for teens, tweens, and adults. We wanted to do what we could to help provide you with some of our own information as well as some valuable information from other bloggers as well.
My brother is now 15 years old and his sensory preferences have changed over the years as to compared to when he was a little child. One thing that is different now is that he is better able to verbalize to us what things he likes to do and what things he prefers.
One sensory tool that was vital for my brother when he was younger was a hammock swing. He loved this swing and he would constantly swing in it during the day when he was playing video games or playing on his iPad. We had the swing set up in the middle of our living room. Now that he has gotten bigger, we don’t have the swing in our living room, but set up a swing outside when it is nice outside.

Finding strategies that work for your teen can sometimes be a challenge, but we want to help make this easier for you.
Here are a list of some of the sensory strategies and tools that have worked for my brother:
Fidgets that he can use while at his computer

Headphones that he can wear to listen to music
Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones Over Ear, Hi-Fi Stereo Wireless Headset, Foldable, Soft Memory-Protein Earmuffs, w/ Built-in Mic and Wired Mode for PC/ Cell Phones/ TV
Different oral motor sensory items such as bubble gum, sour candies, or gummy candies.
ICE BREAKERS ICE CUBES Chewing Gum, Peppermint, Sugar Free, 10 Piece Boxes (Pack of 8)Haribo Gold-Bears Gummi Candy (28.8 Ounce Resealable Pouch)Sour Patch Kids Sweet and Sour Gummy Candy (Original, 1.9 Pound Bag)
Some of the differences that I have noticed for my brother as he has gotten older is he doesn’t need to seek out movement activities as much. He enjoys finding activities to keep his hands busy while he is waiting for things. He still really enjoys music, and he enjoys some of the visual type sensory items as well.
Working as an occupational therapist, I get questions all of the time about how can I support my child’s sensory needs. I do my best to help them come up with sensory strategies and tools to best support their needs. Every teen and child is different and in different situations some strategies work, and sometimes they don’t. The key here is to be patient and be willing to be flexible. Be willing to try new things and think outside of the box to find strategies that work for your teen.
What can you do as the parent to help support your teen with finding their sensory preferences?
Now that they are older, can they tell you things that they like and prefer? My brother can now tell us what he wants such as a snack or listening to music. If they can’t tell you, you will have to learn to observe and listen to what they are telling you through their behaviors.
Observe Their Behaviors
Take time to notice how they are responding to different situations during the day. Is there an activity they were doing where they were calm or helped give them energy?
Help Identify Some Problem Areas
Help your teen identify some areas that they are having a hard time with. Do they have a hard time with focus, staying awake, following directions, or sitting still? Help your teen think of times during the day when they are having a harder time? What would be some strategies you could try to implement during those times of day or during those situations.
Here are some great resources from the Inspired Tree House about the Auditory System and the Proprioceptive and Vestibular Systems to help you identify some of the problem areas.
Teens and Sensory Processing: The Auditory System
Teens and Sensory Processing: Movement
Sensory Processing: What is Proprioception?
Help them Become Self-Aware
When we learn some of the problem areas, this can also help teach the teen to become more self-aware of what some of their needs may be. The ultimate goal is for our teen to be able to self-regulate themselves on their own without our help so that they can be at their optimal functional level during the day. When the teens can learn to self-regulate on their own this will help them through their everyday life skills and routines.
Check out our Questionnaire about how to help your teen find sensory strategies that work for them!!
Set up their Environment for Success
If they need a little help from you before they are independent, you can set up their environment to help them find the strategies that work for them. For instance my brother keeps most of his fidget type toys right by his computer or in our living room so that he has quick access to them and doesn’t have to go searching for them, which would add another step for him. He also keeps his music and headphones in the same spot in the living room so he knows exactly where they are. The easier we can make it on our teens to get to the objects, the less they will need to rely on our help.

Christmas is almost here and winter is upon us! I love the magical feeling of this time of year! I love driving around town and looking at the Christmas lights up around the neighborhood.

I personally love to play with different textures of play dough and slime! It can be so soothing for some. You can incorporate fine motor skills with working on finding small objects within the play dough or slime and work on using a pincer grasp with finding the objects inside the slime. You can have the child work on hand strength by gripping, squishing and pinching the slime. They could use cookie cutters to push into the slime or play dough to form new shapes. This is another great activity to help with tactile sensory play ideas!

The Holiday season is quickly approaching and this can bring about excitement, but also new experiences for you and your child. They may cause your family more anxiety and stress with learning the new social situations. These new experiences could include the new holiday decorations inside and out, new foods to experience, family gatherings, and exchanging and receiving presents, just to name a few.
All of these new experiences can cause a lot of sensory overload and anxiety for some kids and we need to be mindful of that this holiday season. How can you tell when your child is experiencing sensory overload?
Pay attention to your child’s behaviors. Are they covering their ears or closing their eyes? Are they running away from the situation or crying and melting down? These can be some signs that your child may be experiencing sensory overload.
Check out our FREE Ultimate Holiday Sensory Guide and download the guide below!
This guide provides your with fun holiday and winter sensory strategies to help your loved one have a great Holiday Season!
Provides information for these types sensory experiences:
- Proprioceptive Input
- Vestibular Input
- Visual Input
- Auditory Input
- Oral Motor Input
- Olfactory Input
- Tactile Input

Strategies you can try to help you Survive the Holiday Season for Children and Teenagers with Autism or Sensory Processing Difficulties
- Avoid large crowds by shopping online or going at times during the day when the stores are less busy.
- When decorating your home inside and out, do this gradually to help your child adjust to the new decorations. See if there are ways they can help participate in this with you so they can be apart of the decoration process.
We found some Holiday LEGO sets that may be a great option for kids that love to do LEGO activities that they could put together and then you could all enjoy the Holiday masterpiece!
Check out this Holiday LEGO Train set!!
3. Help your child figure out calm down strategies when they start to feel overwhelmed. This could be finding a safe place in the house where they can calm down and relax. Are there certain toys/games your child enjoys that helps them calm down. My brother loves being able to retreat to his iPad or his computer when he is feeling overwhelmed. If you are at a family members or friends house see if they will allow your child to retreat to another room where it is quiet and they can regroup.
4. Make sure to give your child/teen breaks throughout the day/activity so they can recharge and adjust to the new setting and/or people.
5. Never feel like you have to go to events/activities that you know will be overwhelming for your child/teen. Do what you feel is best for YOUR child to have a great Holiday experience. Try to see the world through your child or teenager’s eyes. If they aren’t having a good experience, I am sure you are not either.
6. Help your child understand the new routine and if there may be any changes to the plan, so they can better prepare themselves for the new situation. If you need to, try to keep things in a familiar routine for your child especially with bedtime rituals to help them get enough sleep. I know if I don’t get enough sleep, I am not able to be the best person the next day.
7. Prepare some quiet time activities to do together to help your child through some of the busy times of the Holiday Season. Check out these Christmas No Sew Quiet Books!
8. Help your child by talking through new situations so they can feel more prepared for the new situations they may encounter. Check out our Christmas Social Skills Situation and Problem Solving Cards!
9. Be proactive and understand that meltdowns will happen during this time and know that it is okay. Recognize the signs for your child to understand when they are starting to feel overwhelmed. Do they start to shut down and retreat, do they run away, do they scream, or do they cry? Try to understand what situations are really hard for your child and try to adapt them so that your child can participate, or it is okay to sit some activities out if it is just too much for your child.
Does your child struggle with the transitions between activities or do they have a hard time waiting their turn if you are opening presents?
- You could try playing games during the waiting times together. Do they like counting or letters? You could play an I spy game or a scavenger hunt.
- They could also be the one in charge or handing out the presents to everyone, so they have a specific job to complete.
- You could play a Christmas song they enjoy and let them know that when the song is over, then it will be their turn again to open presents.
- Maybe they need to open presents slowly and just open one up and then have the opportunity to play or interact with that present for awhile and then come back to opening more presents.
- You could try to play interactive physical games during times of waiting or during transitions. You could pretend to be a penguin and waddle around, or jump around like a reindeer.
- You can make colorful dots out of construction paper and make a colorful ornament obstacle course where they can only step on certain colors. You could play musical chairs with Christmas music.
- You can always try to use visual timers to help with wait times as well, so the child understands how much time they need to wait for.
- You could provide them with a tactile or fidget toy to play with during wait times.

Halloween can be a fun holiday, but for some children and families Halloween may cause more stress than fun.
We want to try to create a fun halloween for ALL children and to remember we may need to adjust how we approach the holiday.
For some children wearing a halloween costume may not feel good to them or scare them. Try to pick out a costume that your child will enjoy wearing, but if wearing a costume is too overwhelming for your child, don’t force them to wear one. You could try to find a t-shirt with a cartoon character they like or have them wear a hat or headband if they can tolerate that.
Tips for Picking out a Halloween Costume
- Find a texture that your child will be able to tolerate. Try to have them go to the store to try on the costume with you.
- Try making your own costume out of comfortable clothes you know they like. Such as a soft cotton shirt and sweat pants could be paired with a tail or ears.
- If they are afraid of wearing a mask, don’t make them
- Find a character that they are motivated by such as a favorite cartoon character or video game character
- Find a costume that will be okay with the weather wherever you live
- Provide opportunities for your child to wear the costume ahead of time to help them get used to wearing the costume
- If your child cannot tolerate a costume, you could try a Halloween themed alternative such as a pumpkin shirt, orange colored shirt, or even a princess shirt.
Talk to your child about Halloween and Trick or Treating ahead of time so they can understand the process.
One way you can talk to your kids about Halloween and Trick or Treating is through our FREE Trick or Treating Social Story!!
Provide us your name and email address below to download our FREE Trick or Treating Social Story!
Use social stories and pictures to help your child understand why we dress up in costumes and the process for how we complete the steps for Trick or Treating. Also be sure to talk to your child about safety awareness and ways to stay safe with you on Halloween.
If your child has difficulty going house to house find alternatives for them to participate with trick or treating. Maybe they could stay home and help a parent hand out candy to other kids. Maybe they could just go to one house of a family member or a best friend where they feel comfortable to help participate in the experience. If they become overwhelmed with the face to face interactions see if a sibling or friend can collect the candy or items for them. If they are afraid of the dark, see if there are opportunities in your neighborhood where they do trick or treating activities in the day time when it is light outside. See if your local nursing home has a trick or treat night where you can go to an indoor building. You could try practicing and role playing trick or treating at your home ahead of time and create this to be a fun experience for all of your children.
If you are invited to a Halloween party and large crowds are hard for your child maybe you could arrive early when the crowd is small and leave before it gets to be too large and overwhelming for your child. If you notice your child is getting overwhelmed, but can’t verbally tell you this help them to leave the situation and take a break. You could try taking a break in your car, or if it is a party where you know the family well, see if they will let you retreat to a quiet room to spend some time alone for a little while.
Ways to keep your child SAFE this Halloween
- Talk to them about strangers and how to stay with you
- Tell them about how to contact you if they get separated from you
- Make a plan ahead of time about what houses you may go to and/or the route you may take
- Talk to your child about going to houses with their lights on and to houses where they know the people
- Tell them not to eat candy or food items if they don’t know what it is
- Talk to them about how to go up to the houses and how to talk to the people answering the door
- Try not to let them run outside and walk with you
- Teach them about how to look out for cars if you are walking around the neighborhood
- Talk to your child about a safe word that you come up with ahead of time, so if someone was trying to pick them up, they can ask what is the safe word and if they don’t know it then the child can know not to go with them.
In addition you can talk to your child about the different halloween decorations and what sounds they may hear with the decorations. Some decorations make noises when you go up to them and may scare you. Talk to them about how the decoration is not real and will not hurt them. If they can handle it maybe play them different sounds they could hear, such as howls, eerie sounds, or even screams.
Remember not all children will be able to verbally say “trick or treat”. Be patient and allow time for children to answer your questions. If they don’t respond to you, don’t get mad and instead remain calm and don’t raise your voice. Be patient and respectful to all of the children that come to your door.

Sensory Strategies to Improve Independence with Dressing
Every person has different sensory preferences in our everyday lives. Some of us like a very calm environment, warm baths, listening to music, soft textures, or to eat sweet foods. We even have sensory preferences when it comes to dressing. I know I enjoy wearing yoga pants and a loose fitting shirt over dress pants and a dress shirt. My brother also prefers to wear clothes that are soft and loose fitting. As a family, we know that getting dressed every day can be a big chore and we want to help you find sensory strategies to help make the every day task of getting dressed easier for your child with autism easier for every one. Even working in the clinic as an occupational therapist, I get questions from families all of the time about how to help their child with sensory concerns with dressing.
Here are some sensory strategies we have found helpful with my brother when it comes to clothing textures:
There are various clothing textures that can bother children when it comes to dressing.
Sometimes the feeling of seems can be uncomfortable for children and children can have tactile sensitivities. One way to help with this is by finding clothes that are seamless.
Try finding clothes that are seamless
- Seamless Socks:
- Tank tops:

Clothing tags are another tactile sensory feeling that may be bothersome for some kids.
Texture of the clothes (cotton, wool, or spandex)
- Figure out what types of textures of clothes your child likes and stick with that so that they can feel safe and become less anxious with dressing.
Binding in the clothes (elastic waist bands, overlapping clothes)
- Try finding clothes that will not bind or wrinkle
Loose Clothes or Tight Clothes
- Some children do not like the feeling of loose clothes and may prefer tighter clothes and vice versa.
- See if you can find clothes that are tighter such as compression shirts or under armor shirts
SmartKnitKIDS Compresso-T Deep Pressure Sensory Compression UndershirtSmartKnitKIDS Seamless sensitivity Bralette 3 PackUnder Armour Boys HeatGear Armour Short Sleeve Fitted Shirt
Stiff Clothing (like jeans)
- Some children have a very hard time being able to wear jeans. Try to find pants that they enjoy wearing. If they need to wear jeans for an occasion then try to find jeans with a soft/stretchy texture.
- You could try these stretchy elastic waist jeans
Some children can be bothered by clothing that could touch the child’s head. Be aware of this with your child and notice if hats really bother them.
Shoes can be something that your child might have a hard time with. Some kids prefer closed toes shoes or open toe shoes. Try to find shoes that allow your child to be independent with dressing. If they become frustrated with tying their shoes try elastic shoe laces or velcro shoes. Maybe your child would like light up shoes for fun! Try to find shoes that are comfortable for your child that they can be successful with in dressing.

Weight of the clothing (heavy clothes vs. light clothes).
Pay attention to the time of year is your child more bothered by heavy winter clothes or light summer clothes? Is there a way you can take away layers or add layers in textures of clothes that your child still prefers?
When children are bothered by the feeling of their clothes they may constantly tag or pull at their clothes. They may have difficulty needing to change clothes through out the day such as for swimming lessons or after getting dirty. If you child does become bothered by changing clothes, try to limit the number of times they will need to change their clothes. Also shopping for new clothes may cause a lot of stress. See if you can do more shopping online where they have free returns so you don’t have to cause too much stress for your family.
Children can also have visual and auditory preferences with clothing and this is something to consider.
If your child becomes very irritated by the clothing texture, see if you can find textures of clothes that they are more comfortable in. Don’t force them to wear clothes that they really dislike wearing.
If you find a certain texture of clothing that your child/teenager is more likely to wear such as a loose fitting shirt that is cotton, when they need to find clothes for a different occasion such as a wedding, try to find a dress shirt made out of cotton that is a little looser feeling.
I know it may feel super time consuming trying to find clothes that are similar in feeling for different occasions, but once you are able to find something to help your child be successful and more independent with dressing and have less meltdowns with the dressing process, this can make your family’s life a lot easier.
- Find the texture of clothes that your child prefers and avoid ones that your child really does not like
- If they need to wear a certain type of fabric they do not like, try having them wear a clothing texture they do like under the clothes so their body does not have to feel the texture they don’t like.
- If needed, the child can wear clothing inside out so they do not feel the seams.
- Try warming up the clothes in the dryer before needing to get dressed if your child prefers warm feelings.
- You may try washing clothes multiple times to make if more soft.
- Set up the environment for success by setting out the clothes for them or making sure they are easily accessible in their room for them to get dressed more independently.
- You can also try labeling the dresser drawers or organizing their closet with specific types of clothing in certain areas to make it easier for them to find the different types of clothes.
- Use hooks or hangers at eye level for the child to be able to visually see all of the items.
- Provide a visual checklist of each step of dressing to help the child visually see how to get dressed.
- Provide a rewards chart with stickers for your child to visually see a reward they can work towards with getting dressed independently every day.
- If your child likes music, try playing music while getting dressed.
- Make up a silly song about getting dressed and sing it together while your child is getting dressed.
- Use a mirror to help your child visually see how they are getting dressed.
- You can model the behavior you want with them when it comes to getting dressed so they can visually see how to put that item of clothing on.
- Allow for extra time in the morning and night to allow your child to practice each skill and become more independent. That way you don’t feel so rushed. If it is hard to have extra time in the morning, make it a priority to practice the dressed skills at night when you aren’t feeling rushed to leave in the morning.
- Before getting dressed in the morning or before bed, talk about the dressing process and tell them the exact steps that need to be accomplished so they know the routine.
- Try calming activities before getting dressed with a massage
- Complete deep pressure or heavy work activities before getting dressed such as squeezes, jumping on the trampoline, crab walk, or bear crawl.
If your family is still struggling to with dressing, please contact your local occupational therapist and they will be able to provide you with specific strategies for your child and family.
Please let me know if there are certain types of clothes that work well for your child or teenager and I would love to add them to the list to help provide a comprehensive dressing resource for families! Please leave a comment about them below!
