Sensory processing is how an individual receives, processes and responds to their internal and external sensory environment. Children may be over-responsive or under-responsive and therefore respond to the sensory environment in a range of ways.
Some frequent signs that may indicate sensory processing difficulties are listed below:
My child gets very upset in noisy environments.
My child covers their ears in noisy environments.
My child doesn’t like when they get their hair cut/nails cut/hair washed.
My child has difficulty staying seated.
