‘The Sensory Rollercoaster’ takes you as a parent into the complexities of sensory processing difficulties and provides effective fun filled games for your children with challenges in how they deal with day-to-day sensory challenges. It is the Story of How Their Sensory Systems Can Impact Your Child’s Daily Life.
We know that Play is the way for your child to learn all day. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play supports fine and gross motor skills, language development, cognitive growth, problem solving skills, and social interaction.
Sensory Processing Difficulties may occur in each sensory system: Visual, Auditory, Tactile, Smell, Taste, Vestibular, Proprioception, and Interoception, and symptoms may vary depending on subtype. That is why Sensory Processing Difficulties can be so difficult to understand and diagnose depending on if your child at a given moment in time has a ‘little cup’ that overflows easily or a ‘big cup’ that constantly needs to be filled. If as parents we can understand our child’s sensory needs, it will communicate a sense of safety, foster trust, and consolidate bonding with our children.
The Sensory Rollercoaster is the basic premise of play with your child based on giving you an understanding of sensory principles and its possible malfunctions.
