We're in sensory HELL
Ashlea is having a lot of sensory issues at the moment.
To say they are trying my patience is an understatement. Even her beloved preschool teacher is finding it hard going at times.
We are increasing our OT sessions to weekly and trying to do lots of sensory stuff with Ashlea. I am even looking into getting one of those therapy swings installed in our house! If all else fails we are going to try brushing. I had already planned to take a week off work during the Easter school holidays - it looks like I may have to spend that time brushing Ashlea - every 20 minutes.
By the end of it I may well be the one screaming!
We have taken a brush home from OT today to 'try it out' once a day and see how Ashlea tolerates it. If it goes well we will make a plan for when to officially start brushing therapy.
Anyone done it? Successfully? All advice on dealing with Sensory Integration issues gratefully accepted!!
