Question:

How can I determine what type of sensory diet would help me teach my 6-year-old how to help himself during his kindergarten day?

Answer:

It can be overwhelming at first to figure out what your child needs. I recommend finding a good occupational therapist in your area to do a thorough assessment and determine a course of treatment, including a sensory diet, for him. In the meantime, fill out the Sensory Symptoms Checklist on our website.

Take a look at where the majority of checkmarks are to find out what sensory areas he is OVER-responding in and which sensory systems he is UNDER-responding in. If you’re a member, our “BrainWorks Quick Start Guide” can help you from there. Let me know if I can help further!

Best Wishes,
