Like many kiddos, my son has some big sensory needs. One day, when it OT, he found himself on a vibration plate. As he turned the dial up, his body began to vibrate more quickly. He then decided to stand on one side of the plate, giving him even more sensation as the plate vibrated on the highest setting.

How fun is that? He is completely present to the sensations and even making a humming tone to further enjoy the effects of the rapid vibration. I am still in awe of how much he loves this vibrating plate. As recommended by my son’s OT therapist, we finally purchased one for our home. And, it’s amazing to see my 12 year old learning to self-regulate on his own.
Sometimes kids just need some help regulating, and having the tools on hand make it so much easier. I love to see my kiddo give himself a sensory break by standing on his vibration plate whenever he needs. It’s been a great way for him to regain composure and self control throughout the day.
Pictured below is is the vibration plate that we have: Best Choice Products Vibration Plate. It has great reviews and is the most reasonably priced.

His cousins were over for a visit, and they enjoyed some time on it as well. And the videos of them are just a great! It’s easy to see how it helps the sensory seekers and the kiddos needing some regulation, as they find their way back to it on their own when they need it.
Finding the right tools for my kiddo has been quite the journey. I hope to help you find some tools to help you with yours. Here are some other Vibration Plate Choices if you’re looking for your options.
