Looking at Behaviors Through a Sensory Lens with Julie Morrow, MOTR/L 

Have you ever looked at your child through a sensory lens? If not, you should try it! You see, every one of us has different sensory needs. Naturally, we all gravitate towards activities, environments and experiences that make us feel good. Part of that is our sensory system telling us what feels good to us and what doesn't.

Some people are less sensitive to sensory input. For example, these are the people that love to work out, crave movement and do best with fast paced activities such as playing sports. They may love loud, crowded environments such as concerts, roller coasters, sporting events and parties. They may love getting messy, crave spicy foods and always have to be fidgeting with something.

Then there are other people that are more sensitive to sensory input. They don't like loud, busy environments and would be much more content tuning out the rest of the world by sitting on the couch playing video games, reading a book, or watching tv. They are able to think best when there is no background noise and they may be picky eaters. They can't stand wearing socks or underwear, hate tags on their clothing, struggle with tying their shoes and put up a fight every time they have to brush their teeth. Does any of this sound familiar?

Join us as Julie Morrow teaches us about how looking at behaviors through a sensory lens can give you insight about your child's "sensory personality". Learn about signs that your child might have difficulty with sensory processing and what you can do to help. There will also be a question and answer session at the end.

Cost is $15.00 per person or $25.00 per couple. Bring your own dinner if you like or have pizza with us for an additional $5.00 per person. Child care also available.
