Robbie, my first child who was asses having a Sensory Processing Disorder, A condition in which the brain have issues recieving information from the senses. Playdough greatly helps him with his proprioceptive and tactile senses, It's soothing and calming for him.

We made alphabet using alphabet cutter.
