Re: Other Sensory Integration mom's here?

I have two with SID. My 5yr old is hypersensitive. Textures, loud noises, sudden movements, etc really set him off. He's getting better as he gets older though.

My 2yr old is hyposensitive. We joke that if we swung him over our heads by is toes we may finally calm him He knows no fear, doesn't feel pain very well and does all sorts of naughty things (read: destroying furniture, breaking down doors, pushing the kitchen table around, etc) to get the stimulation his brain needs. He's on a sensory diet. Every couple of hours I have to try to reach that part of his brain that "feels" in order to keep him from melting. Doesn't always work, but we try.
