When my boys were little, this was an issue we struggled with a LOT! The twins are on the higher end of the spectrum, but one struggles with sensitivity to certain sounds, touch, and even what he eats. It’s interesting to see just how different my boys are on this spectrum. I have one twin who will not eat certain foods if it smells funny or looks funny. As they get older, they are getting better at trying new things. However, when they were little, they would eat the same thing for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. French Toast Sticks and Pasta were part of their daily diet.
What about your kids? What are they sensitive to? Do you find sensory activities like the one listed above help? Leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you!
