Sensory issues can be difficult to detect in your child. Being aware of all 7 senses can help know what to look for as you child develops especially their body position, coordination and balance. Parents in this video discuss what they noticed in their own children and the differences they have seen because of therapy.

For some children, their senses may not be sending the information to the brain correctly. Their behavior can look under or over reactive. They may seem fearful or disorganized. They may have problems reaching physical milestones, socializing or learning.

If this sounds like your child, he or she may have a sensory issue and you should talk to your healthcare provider. Watch this video to learn about possible signs of sensory integration issues.
