We’re launching a new topic on this week’s show, and I can’t wait to tell you about it!
This Friday we’re beginning a month-long series on sensory issues in toddlers and preschoolers, and this week we’re starting with a a very basic introduction to sensory processing disorders.
This won’t be an over-your-head review full of so much lingo that you’ll need a medical degree to understand, but a down-to-earth, real-life explanation of what sensory issues are, how they can impact development, and red flags to look for in young children.
Since we’re not occupational therapists and struggled early on in our careers to understand these issues ourselves, we’re going to great lengths to make sure we’ll explain this in a way that you will be able to understand!
If you’re a parent who has a child with “quirks,” or one who is described as a “puzzle,” sensory processing disorders may help your child’s issues make sense to you.
I’ll also recommend resources (books and websites) so that you can do your own follow-up reading.
Please join Kate and me on Friday, October 3 t 1:00 pm Eastern time for the first show in what I hope will be a great series!
