Parent Talks Podcast – Episode 10: Making Sense of Sensory Processing

January 31, 2020  |  Child Development, Parent Talks Podcast, Pediatric Therapy  |  By Encompass

Excessive tantrums, clumsiness, over-sensitivity to some things, under-sensitivity to others… These can be indications of issues taking in and processing the world around us. In this episode of Parent Talks, we’re speaking with two mothers who had sensory concerns about their kids. Then, later in the episode, Encompass Occupational Therapist Ashley Fletcher shares her advice and guidance to help parents develop strategies to best support their children’s sensory needs.
