Sensory Processing – Part 5 Summary of Sources – Fill Up Your Toolbox

Its been a fun journey to review some of the things that can be easily incorporated into your day to help your child (and family) cope with Sensory Processing Disorder.  These are but a “tip of the ice burg” as every child is different and that means that the strategies vary from child to child and from day to day.  As parents and therapists we need to have our toolbox full.  We need to always be willing to be creative and think outside of the box.

Here is a list of resources, many of which were mentioned in previous posts.
