What Is A Sensory Diet?

No, Not Food… Effective Sensory Based Activities for your child’s specific needs!

Sensory Diets have nothing to do with food!

Sensory Diets are sensory based activities that are tailored to your child so they receive the specific sensory input they need. The idea is to get the body and brain into a “just right” state of arousal.

This sensory input can be anything from lighting to the feeling of clothes to even sounds!

Everyone processes sensory input differently, but some children struggle more than others to process the messages from inside their body and the external environment, which can lead to behavior reactions, like lack of focus, poor moods, and struggling to learn.
What Is A Sensory Diet

Could My Child Benefit From A Sensory Diet?

Sensory Diets work great for children with sensory challenges. Often times, these challenges show up in these behaviors:

Reactions to Harsh,
Bright Lighting

Irritation From Certain Fabrics They Wear

Debilitation From Loud or Unpleasant Sounds

Struggling to Sit Still in the Classroom

Challenges with Self-Regulation

If your child struggles with these behaviors,
a Sensory Diet could be a life-changer!
