For some children sensations such as touch, smell, and sound can be overwhelming and upsetting. A sock seam, which may seem small to some, can be a huge issue for a child with sensory issues. (I’m proud to work for a company that keeps such little things in mind) Hypersensitivity to stimuli may occur in children with Autism or children who have Sensory Processing Disorder. I recently read an interesting article about Autistic children and managing sensory sensitivities. Please give it a quick read!
