SENSORY PROCESSING CHALLENGES

Some examples of why your child could benefit from an Occupational Therapy assessment:

  • seeks out sensations: stuffing too much food in mouth at one time, never sits still/always moving

  • difficulty with interoceptive senses: struggles to toilet train, does not notice when they are too hot or too cold

  • always moving, crashing in to things, jumping, touching, bumping, draping their body over yours

  • heightened or over-responsive reaction to sound, touch, movement, or taste 

  • under responsive to certain sensations: high tolerance to pain or a poor sense of danger, often misses information or does not notice the information, does not notice when they cut themselves

  • often distracted by visual or auditory stimuli

  • struggles to regulate emotions
