I know how much reading about others’ experiences have helped me, so I thought I’d share some some of the exercises/activities that we were given by our Occupational Therapist.
One of the first activities that our OT suggested to us was yoga. During our session she used Yoga Pretzel cards. I fell in love with them.
Now, having done yoga since college, I was a huge fan of this. I know how good yoga makes my bones feel, I can only imagine for someone with Sensory Processing Disorder, how awesome it could be. And these cards give step by step instructions that are easy for kids to follow. (I did step in and work with her on technique a bit.)
Eventually, I ordered some other yoga related activities just to mix things up a bit.
This will be an ongoing series chronicling our experiences with Sensory Processing Disorder. I am in NO WAY an expert! Please read and use at your own risk. 🙂
