> SENSORY PROCESSING

What is Sensory Processing?

Sensory Processing is an important part of everyone's life. 

It is also super important to explain sensory porcessing in a way that suits the families we are treating (which can sometimes be harder than it sounds). 

Sensory processing relates to the information our body gets (from inside and outside) and helps us to make sense of the world around us. There are 7 senses; sight, taste, sound, touch, smell, balance and movement.   

Some kids have high or low thresholds for information which can impact their emotions, behaviour and sometimes development.  

Information on Sensory Processing is listed below.
