Is there a cost to rent a Sensory Backpack?
No, there is no cost to rent a Sensory Backpack.
Who are the backpacks for? Is there an age limit?
The Sensory Backpacks are for children and youth who live with sensory processing disabilities often do not have the ability to filter out external stimuli, such as loud sounds and bright lights, making outings difficult for both themselves and their families. Due to these circumstances, children who live with these types of disabilities often do not get to experience the same things as many of their peers. There is no age limit to rent a Sensory Backpack.
