Can’t Sit Still? Could It Be Sensory Seeking?

One common reason that parents seek OT treatment for their child is because their child demonstrates sensory processing concerns.  Sensory processing is complex, however, often there are simple home-based strategies that can be very helpful in meeting a child’s sensory needs.

The following video from our OT-V (Occupational Therapy Video) series discusses one of the most troubling sensory related concerns for parents– when their child is a “sensory seeker,” meaning they seem to be constantly looking for additional sensory input and constantly “on the go” as they are attempting to obtain the sensory input that their bodies crave.

Watch the video to learn how an Occupational Therapist can help sensory seeking children and their families.
