What is a "Sensory Kid?"
A “Sensory Kid” refers to a child that takes in information from the world around them in a different way than other children.
We all learn through our senses. Input is received through our eyes, nose, ears, etc. We then process that information and respond to it in a way that is appropriate for the situation.
Kids who have sensory processing difficulties interpret information from their senses inaccurately, and therefore they over or under respond to the things they encounter in everyday life.

Common signs that your child may be a “Sensory Kid”
  • Bothered by clothing fabrics, labels, tags, etc.
  • Distressed by light touch or unexpected touch
  • Dislikes getting messy
  • Resists grooming activities
  • Very sensitive to sounds
  • Bothered by lights or patterns
  • High activity level or very sedentary
  • "Thrill seeker" or afraid of movement
  • Poor attention and focus
  • Unusually high or low pain tolerance
  • Seems clumsy, loses balance easily
  • Picky eater
  • Fine motor delays (i.e stacking blocks, handwriting, using scissors...)
  • Speech and language delays
  • Difficulty with social skills
  • Decreased self-confidence and/or independence
Sensory issues affect all kinds of kids ranging from those with Developmental Delays, ADD, ADHD, and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD), to those children without any specific diagnosis whatsoever.
