sensory diet

Sensory processing difficulties occur when the brain has difficulty processing and responding to sensory input. This is common in autistic people and people with ADHD. A sensory diet is a program of sensory activities to do each day to make sure your body is getting the input it needs.

I would recommend working with an occupational therapist as the best way to identify your sensory processing needs and develop a sensory diet. However sometimes, due to wait times or cost implications, this isn’t possible.

So I made this video about how to develop and implement this strategy. Particularly if you don’t have access to an occupational therapist. I hope you find it helpful.
