SPD - sensory seeking

Recommended Posts

The book "Out of Sync Child" is a good place to start. It will help give you some ideas of how to proceed and how to start changing your child's environment to create a sensory diet. After reading it, I decided to go for an OT evaluation to get more tools and techniques like those in the book, but that may not be necessary depending on your situation.

Ours absolutely did, but we live in a major metro area and the OT was specially trained in sensory integration - ie, that was all she did and she only worked with children at a dedicated children's facility. Our experience was life-changing but I hear that the quality of OTs varies dramatically.

He also loves banging on everything, but I will check this out! Thanks:)
