Sensory thoughts


Jessica Hunt OTRL in her seminar Sensory Processing Made Simple reminded us parents and therapists that if we take a sensory behaviour away that we need to replace it with another behavior of the same intensity.  For example, if your child is chewing on his shirt, you may try replacing that behavior with chewing gum.  However, the gum must be difficult enough to chew to match the intensity of chewing on his shirt or it won’t work.  Think Bazooka Bubble Gum not Trident! Try Beef Jerky for chewing! There are also chewable jewelry and pencil tops at Fun and Function’s website and also at the Ark Therapeutics website.
