Why won’t my kids eat certain foods? Why won’t my kid sit still long? Why does my kid get overwhelmed and melt down so easily? Why it takes so long for my kid to do anything? Why does my child wait to use the bathroom right when we're leaving the house? My kid runs everything!


These are typical behaviors for kids that might have difficulty with sensory processing. You are not alone.


More and more kids struggle with sensory processing disorders and other neuro-differences.


Sensory Fitness offers educational videos geared for parents to gain a deep insight into children’s behaviors, strategies to use at home, and specific activities to connect challenges with solutions.
