Making Sense of Your Senses

$25.57

40 simple, fun activities that teach children to: Integrate their senses Develop coordination Enjoy getting through their daily routines Children with sensory processing disorder (SPD) react strongly to certain sounds, textures, or other sensations, or appear unusually numb to sensory stimulation. They may panic and throw tantrums when they feel overwhelmed by stimuli, or seek out intense sensory experiences. Many have difficulty with motor skills. These symptoms almost always lead to social and behavioural problems, but children with SPD can learn to overcome many of these symptoms and balance their senses. Making Sense of Your Senses is a workbook designed to help children with SPD reintegrate their senses and develop awareness and understanding of their SPD. While these activities can stand alone, as each focuses on a specific skill, all of them help children develop strategies to counter the tests of daily life, including morning routines, mealtimes, and classroom functioning. Many activities also involve physical activity, as becoming physically adept helps kids with SPD keep from becoming overwhelmed.
