General Information


sensory processing parent stress

sensory processing parent stress means different to particular individuals and situations.  That said, one of the ways to reduce parent stress in a family with autism is through “sensory processing therapy.”  This means, by involving your child in as many sensory processing activities as possible, the parent and child become involved, learn and spend time with each other through sensory-focused activities and thus, this can help reduce the stress for both parent and child.

Another way to instigate sensory processing for your child is through swinging.  This favorite childhood playground activity, whether autistic or not, is a great way to wake up the many senses that swinging requires, including recognition of space, movement, rhythm, balance, muscle control and of course, the simple joy that swinging gives.  As your child swings, you, too, can find a moment to decrease your stress.
