“Your sensory accommodations have been a great benefit to our patients. They are such a hit, and really help us to complete our important procedures for patients who may be feeling overwhelmed.”

– BMC X-Ray Technologist


Our sensory toolpacks serve to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible during their visit to BMC. Toolpack items are meant to calm, distract, and redirect patients challenged by an overstimulating healthcare environment.

Sensory toolpacks have supported thousands of patient encounters across BMC, and can be found in the following departments:

  • Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics
  • Pediatric Primary Care
  • Pediatric Neurology
  • Pediatric Pulmonology
  • Pediatric Dental
  • Pediatric Allergy
  • Public Safety
  • Phlebotomy
  • Ophthalmology
  • Radiology
  • Pediatric Emergency Department
  • Vascular Surgery
  • Orthopedic Clinic
  • Rehab
  • Endoscopy
  • Infectious Disease
  • Occupational Therapy

When arriving for your visit, make sure to ask if a sensory toolpack is available! To receive a toolpack, you can also contact the Autism Friendly Initiative at autismfriendly@bmc.org.

We extend tremendous gratitude to Newton Public School’s STRIDE Program for their support in assembling our toolpacks.
