Preschool is a time of wonder when curiosity, development, and learning intersect. While the new sights, routines, and experiences can make preschool exhilarating, what about children who struggle? Perhaps they exhibit odd behaviors: chewing on clothing, covering their ears, avoiding certain textures, refusing to sit with peers, screaming when frustrated, hitting, kicking, or biting.
Wired Differently will help you to decode what may seem like everyday challenging behaviors. It’s possible that these children are struggling with sensory processing disorder (SPD).
