QUESTION: Sensory Diet for My 6 Year Old?

QUESTION:

How can I determine what type of sensory diet would help me teach my 6 year old how to help himself during his kindergarten day?

 GWEN’S ANSWER:

It can be overwhelming at first to figure out what your child needs. I recommend finding a good occupational therapist in your area to do a thorough assessment and determine a course of treatment, including a sensory diet, for him. In the meantime, fill out the Sensory Symptoms Checklist found on our website:

Take a look at where the majority of checkmarks are to find out what sensory areas he is OVER-responding in and which sensory systems he is UNDER-responding in. Our “Quick Start Guide for New Users” can help you from there. Let me know if I can help further!
