Do they become upset or overly excited in noisy, bustling settings (ie. grocery store or restaurant)?
Or even hold their hands over their ears?
Activity level that is unusually high or unusually low?
Does your child struggle with clothes being itchy, tight, uncomfortable or do they feel
that clothing tags are bothersome?
Do they avoid tastes, smells, or textures normally tolerated by children that age?
I have extensive training and experience in sensory-processing and primitive reflexes, which along with my 12 years of experience as a pediatric occupational therapist allows me to develop a personalized and holistic plan, tailored to your baby or child.
What will life look like for your family when you help your child from the inside out?
The answer is different for each family that I work with. But I do know the following:
Improved sensory processing makes it easier to function and makes home life easier.
Better understanding of what is going on with your baby/child decreases the impact of stress and overwhelm.
Babies are better able to play and develop when they have good sensory processing.
It is easier to make memories and be joyful when everyone is calm and grounded, knowing where their body is in space.
In other words, investing in your baby/child's functioning is an investment in your family’s wellness. The early years of parenting are not only a challenge but also exceptionally precious.
Be able to enjoy these special family moments — big and small.
In the meantime, I will help provide resources and strategies for your sensory processing questions.
In an easy to understand way that you will be able to implement into your family routine.
