Early on in my son’s life, we could tell that he seemed to be overly sensitive to the stimulation around him. But we weren’t sure what that meant or if anything needed to be addressed, so we didn’t.
Then when he started pre-school, I mentioned his peculiar behavior to the pre-school director who listened attentively and then mentioned that my child might be having Sensory Integration issues and recommended a book called “Out of Sync Child” by Carol Kranowitz.
Sure enough, reading this book was eye-opening. It felt like they were writing about my son! The information I learned helped me help my child in his early years.
As he got older, the way his brain organized and integrated sensory input seemed to be changing. So now, through his occupational therapy program, we are doing Therapeutic Listening and I have been seeing great results.
If your child has sensory integration issues, Asperger’s or Autism, I would recommend you ask your therapist about Therapeutic Listening.
