Broadcast April 20 on The Coffee Klatch – BlogTalkRadio
Discussion of Growing an In-Sync Child and how parents, teachers, and others can help children develop strong sensory processing and perceptual motor skills.
Discussion at the 3rd annual Autism Tele-Conference sponsored by Moms Fighting Autism
Most children with autism are “out-of-sync,” withdrawing from physical contact, refusing to participate in everyday activities, or responding in unusual ways to sensations of touch, movement, sight and sound. These children don’t behave as we expect — not because they WON’T, but because they CAN’T. The underlying reason is Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Parents, teachers, and other caregivers can provide fun sensory-motor experiences to address autistic children’s sensory needs and help them participate and communicate with their peers – in general education or special education classrooms, on the playground, and at home.
