Hello! Welcome to the Sensory Integration Disorder community! Well, anyone who's familiar with me can probably guess that I'm thrilled that Med help has started a special place for all things sensory. It's been my privilege to raise a child with sensory integration disorder. I say privilege because my son has taught me so much about how our nervous system works, overcoming challenges, and accentuating the positive. It's been quite a journey starting when he was 3 until now when he is 8.
I hope that we can share strategies related to sensory integration disorder but . . . Guess what?! So much of what we do with our sensory child benefits our nonsensory child. From nervous system activities, behavioral techniques, to improvement in social skills/play skills, to setting good homework habits, to getting along with siblings, sitting in a classroom setting and the list goes on. I hope that this community will benefit all kids and families dealing with sensory with some tips for all kids along the way.
