What Can Be Done About Sensory Processing Issues?
Here we discuss important sensory processing issues for parents and caregivers to become aware of, and what can be done about them, so that they can better help children .
In this interview we address many questions parents ask such as:
What are the different types of sensory processing disorders that a person can have?
What can be done about it?
Who helps with these issues?
How does a parent or individual contact them?
How to work with schools and teachers.
What are Epraxia and dyspraxia?
