Concentration, learning and participation in daily activities can be affected by the way your child processes sensations. Some children’s bodies are over or under responsive to sensations including touch, taste, sound and movement. This can present in many different ways, from difficulty listening and concentrating in noisy environments, to fussy eating and even a low tolerance of touch (e.g. hair washing and nail cutting).
Occupational Therapy can give your child the tailored assistance they require to manage their sensory world. This can have a positive impact on their daily routine and learning and give you more confidence in helping your child manage their challenges.
