New Use for the Rubba Scrubba

Dear FlyLady,I know you’ve heard a lot of creative uses for the Rubba Scrubba – but I’ll be you’ve never heard this one!

I have a 9-year-old son who is on the autism spectrum and has a lot of sensory issues. One of the treatments for Sensory Processing Disorder is a brushing technique.  It doesn’t make sense to me – but regular brushing of the skin  — done with  a certain amount of pressure with just the “right” brush – can have a calming effect. Check out this article

I’ve tried this, on and off, with my son for years – but the recommended brush  — the small scrub brush that surgeons use to clean their hands before operating – never did much for my son.

I’m sure you know where this is going…..  A few months ago, when my son was having a particularly bad day and I was willing to try anything to calm him and improve his mood,  I tried “brushing” him with the Rubba Scrubba.  He loved it!

The brush really helped calm him down.  – I bought him his own Rubba Scrubba and we use it regularly.   I’ve been  telling his therapists all about it!
