When Touching, Wearing and Noises Become Intolerable
SHE’S ALWAYS IRRITATED BY EVERY LITTLE THING!
Many parents are at their wits end trying to find a solution for their child’s learning disorder or such problems as hyper-sensitivity. Because we work from a natural developmental approach, we see things like this mother describes daily! And it’s really fun seeing success and confidence growing and glowing in the faces of our clients.
“When I was asked to use one word to describe my experience, I said, life-changing. When our daughter started the program, she was highly frustrated, emotional, and her attention span was terrible. The only way she could focus on school work was in a totally quiet environment. She wanted to help and follow instructions but could not remember. She was also hyper-sensitive, we had to cut out all tags from her clothing. Megan improved two grade levels in math, word recognition and comprehension in one year. She can now read in a noisy room and leaves most tags in her clothing. Her auditory processing skills have improved dramatically. We know that Megan would have been given several different labels if we had taken her to Scottish Rite. Thank you and God’s blessings. “ T. E. in Plano, TX
HAVING A SENSORY SYSTEM ON OVERLOAD
I must say, I feel really sorry for the child and the parent who find themselves in this situation. Enjoying life is not a natural occurrence for someone with a sensory disorder. They tolerate multiple assaults on their sensory system that most of us wouldn’t ever consider unpleasant. For them, it becomes agony, through no fault of their own, and they experience pain with things you and I have never equated in those terms! My complete empathy is with families who struggle from one day to the next. That’s why I am here to tell you, “ALL THE HYPER-SENSITIVITY CAN BE OVERCOME, IF YOU ARE WILLING TO LEARN NEW TECHNIQUES THAT WILL UNLOCK THE DOOR TO LEAVING THE PAIN BEHIND, AND DISCOVERING HOW PLEASANT LIFE REALLY CAN BE.”
