5 Neurodivergent Back To School Essentials

It seems like only yesterday it was the first day back at school but here we are a year later doing it all over again. Whilst we can’t guarantee a smooth transition we can give you a good start with our tips on school essentials for neurodivergent kids & teens.

So here are our 5 Neurodivergent Back To School Essentials from Sensooli.

Chewigem Button

Back to school can be very challenging for those of us who struggle in a school environment. Often the first day and weeks can cause huge anxiety and that can mean more chewing to self-regulate!

Self Regulate

The Button Pendant is one of our more robust Chews so if you’re looking for something to last the start of the term then it is definitely worth looking at buying one of them.

Pocket Sized Fidget

Stimming and fidgeting can help us to stay calm and regulated when we are overwhelmed. The Hand Fidget is an amazing tool due its size and discreetness. Simply pop it in your pocket and stim away!


Dual textured and safe to chew the pocket fidget can help keep you calm.

The #1 Communication Tool

Communication can be a struggle in school. Whether you are non-verbal or you can become non-verbal in times of stress and anxiety the Emotichew is a great tool to help.

Simply flip between the 2 sides to let people know how you’re feeling. Red for leave me be and green for talk to me. This dual-purpose chew aid is great for communication.


Plus it comes in 2 different sizes!

The Visual Planner

TomTag is a visual support and communication tool that helps children and young people develop coping strategies to manage their day, using structure, organisation, and predictability.

This classroom toolkit is great support for busy teachers and TAs. Portable and discreet personalised visual supports for children who need to know what to expect or the order of events during their school day.

Everything’s ready to go with TomTag’s colourful, sturdy tags, click-in buttons, and symbol stickers. All you need to do is personalize it – just pick, stick, click, and off you go.

Vibes Noise Reduction Ear Plugs

These high-fidelity reusable ear plugs come in 3 different sizes and are suitable for children over 6. years old. Unlike standard earmuffs or foam earplugs that block and muffle sounds, Vibes reduce the volume of loud environments to a more comfortable level, while still allowing you to hear everything around you clearly and communicate easily. Vibes’ clear design makes them virtually invisible, making it easy to be discreet about wearing hearing protection.

Perfect for those who want to block out sound but still hear the teacher.
