Sensory processing disorder in kids

Sensory Processing Disorder in kids can be very difficult when wanting to live a functional life.  Wanting to go to the shops on your way home, but your child is hypersensitive to loud noises, wanting to give your child a hug but he/she is hypersensitive to being touched, wanting to take your family out for dinner but your child is hypersensitive to texture of food or even just wanting to go visit family or friends.

Children with Sensory Processing Disorder struggle with day to day events, which we actually take for granted.  Sensory Processing Disorder in children can cause an overwhelming reaction to certain sensors due to him/her not having the coping mechanism to deal with the sensory overload in a socially appropriate manner.  Some behaviours you might have already become aware of include aggression, tantrums, screaming, crying or even non-responsiveness.

Sensory Processing Disorder in kids has an effect on everyone around them, parents, siblings, teachers, peers and extended family.

Have you run out of ideas to help your child cope in a socially appropriate manner?  Let me introduce you to Catch Up Kids.  Catch Up Kids is a program which focuses on the areas your child requires assistance with to be able to live a functional life and to also cope in normal day to day tasks and situations.

Catch Up Kids can help a child with Sensory Processing Disorder by creating his/her individualised program.  Helping him/her to cope in big crowds, helping them to cope with being hugged, helping them to cope with trying out new food and their textures and also helping them to cope in a school environment.

Sensory Processing Disorder in kids will minimise with the help of the Catch Up Kids program.  Catch up Kids program will empower your child with Sensory Processing Disorder and give him/her the confidence to want to learn in a school environment, to want to socialise with his/her peers and not be fearful of being in big crowds.

Catch Up Kids provides your child with a team of experienced tutors which will work on a one to one basis and to ensure your child makes the progress in which him/her requires in a normal day to day environment.

Your child will have a Catch Up Kids Supervisor whom designs an individualised program once your child has been assessed.  The assessment will be conducted by our experienced tutors and supervisors by means of a workshop, whereby, you as a parent are able to voice your concerns with regards to your child.  Your child will be assessed both in person as well as at the school environment to give them a better view of how he/she copes with their fears of sensory overload.

The assessment will be able to give you a better understanding of the kind of help you child requires, either on one on one therapy, school facilitation or both.  Sensory Processing Disorder in children can be helped!
