When kids are oversensitive to the feel of clothing and other sensory “information,” it’s hard not to notice. But it may look different at home than at school.
Families and teachers should connect and share notes on what they see. They can work together to find strategies and supports that make it easier for kids to manage sensitivities.
Knowing what’s behind the challenges lets you give the right type of support. Pediatricians can help you find answers about what’s going on. They can also talk about therapies that might help, like occupational therapy.
