The Sensory Kids Store
The Sensory Kids Store at Bellybum is the first
retail and online store of its kind in the
country. Whilea handful of stores have opened
catering specifically to the needs of Autistic
Children, The Sensory Kids Store supports the
developmental needs of all kids. Every child can
benefit from a healthy "sensory diet", some just
need more than others. At Bellybum, Items
specific to children with "developmental
differences" are not limited to children on the
spectrum. The store provides for the needs of
kids struggling with any type of disability,
disease or delay-physical or neurological-that
affects his/her ability to function in everyday
life. With ease of navigation in mind,
Sternweiler has simplified categories in The
Sensory Kids Store to avoid clinical descriptions
and terminology whenever possible, and has
limited her inventory to only the best products
for any given need. "Parents don't want to wade
through a warehouse of 15,000 products looking
for what they need. They only need one or two.
We've done the legwork for them."

The Sensory Kids Store
The store houses dozens of products organized
simply and in lay-terms by sense/skill. For
example, as opposed to the using the clinical
term "Vestibular" the sub-category is just called
"Balance." Product categories include  
seeing hearing talking touching moving
feeling using my senses learning resources

The Sensory Kids Store
Experts say that sensory-focused toys and
products like these can be great tools to help
parents and kids reinforce at home and in their
everyday lives what they learn in formal therapy
setting. Although the items in the store were
selected specifically because they can assist
children with a variety of special needs, kids
without sensory challenges will also enjoy the
selection.   "All kids benefit from a sensory
diet. Kids with developmental disabilities just
need more," Sternweiler said. "Having easy access
to these items in a warm, comfortable, fun
environment is a great resource for any parent,
and potentially profound for kids and parents
facing developmental challenges."
