I live with (and attempt to manage) David's sensory processing disorder every minute of every day (and night!). There are a lot of times I can predict how he will react in certain situations. Sometimes I wrong.
Last year David wanted nothing to do with the local splash pad. I reasoned that the way the water beats down on your skin is a much harsher feeling than the enveloping of pool or bath water-- which he loves. I decided to take him and his sister again just to see what would happen. This time, I was a happily surprised!
I'm calling these smiles and giggles happy progress!
And because I would hate for his big sister to feel left out...
