Sensory Processing

boy with over sensitivitySensory processing organises the sensations from one's own body and the world around us. For some children, their sensory integration does not develop as it should and may affect their sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste or spatial awareness.

Children can experience hypersensitivity (excessive and undesirable reactions) or hyposensitivity (under-responsive and difficulty in processing responses) to stimuli.

Sensory Audit & Checklist

This checklist aims to identify sensory processing issues. It is not a diagnostic tool and professional advice should be sought. Also bear in mind the child's age, developmental stage and ability. Simply Highlight all that apply to give you a good idea of what the stimuli need or over stiumuli are!
