We all process sensory input differently, but some people are especially sensitive. What might be a minor annoyance for you can be overwhelming and disruptive to someone who struggles with sensory processing issues. In this toolkit, we explore sensory processing issues and how they affect children. We take a look at some common behaviors of kids with sensory processing issues, and a take a non-diagnostic quiz to determine if your child needs further evaluation. Finally, we provide tried and true techniques to help a child struggling with sensory processing issues.

  • How do you tell if your child is just stubborn or if they have actual sensory issues?
