Sensory Overload and strategies that can help throughout the year.

Sensory overload or sensory hyper-reactivity is something that many people with sensory integration difficulties, sometimes also called sensory processing disorder, struggle with, often on a daily basis. These short clips, including 2 for the festive season, provide us with an opportunity to understand how it feels and learn more about what can make daily life easier to manage.

Sensory Overload at Christmas – listen to Jodie describe how early trauma created sensory sensitivity, and how sensory integration therapy including learning more about her own body and what can help has changed her life.
