What is Sensory Processing?

Sensory Processing is one possible function our child's behaviour, and understanding your child`d sensory needs is so important, to support their learning, behavior, emotions and social interactions. Lets learn how to support them ,and know how to help them to cope in their environments.

               Sensory Seeking

Sensory seeking- you many also know of this as

  • Body movements such as, hand-flapping, covering the ears, hair twirling

  • Jumping, spinning or they provide pressure or squeezing to certain parts of the body, Want bear hugs from adults often

  • Waving or placing objects near the eyes

  • Covering the eyes to avoid bright lights or patterns

  • Chewing on objects or clothing

  • Avoiding perfumes, lotions, or air fresheners

  • Strong aversions to specific food textures.

This is one way in which we may process our Sensory information from our environment, saying our bodies and systems we need more of a particular input to keep us regulated or help us focus etc, but here is the catch... we and out children often do not know why they may do this or how it helps them!

Sensory Registration

"Sensory registration is the process by which children respond or attend to sensory input in their environments. The nervous system must first notice the sensory information, once registered the memory compares it to things they have heard or seen, and thus gives new information meaning." Paediatric Development Center.

As we have done for previous systems, here is some examples of how Sensory Registration may look in your child's day.
