Sensory Processing and Your Child

Sensory Processing and Your Child

Does your child seem to always be on the move?

Are they constantly putting things into their mouth?

Do they have a hard time with routines such as toothbrushing, bath time or haircuts?

The behaviors may be related to sensory processing which is a term explaining how an individual takes in sensory information and how their brain interprets it.

The brain receives this information about what is happening which leads to us to respond and react to it. Children are responding to or acting in an attempt to regulate or to meet their body’s needs.

If you’re seeing these behaviors or similar ones in your child, please watch this video series to learn how to become your child’s sensory detective!

We will introduce you to more information about sensory processing and teach you how to look for clues in your child’s behavior or actions and then find sensory based solutions to help them!

You can also join our Facebook group to learn more tips and share ideas with other caregivers!
