Is It Behavior or Sensory Issues?

A great article for parents and teachers regarding children's behaviors, possible learning issues, and easily understandable explanations about how sensory processing can impact your children.
The main thing is this is not a big deal in a negative way. This is good information to help YOU understand your child.

At Home Fine Motor Kit

I saw this idea on Pinterest. The kit was made by a teacher but I think gathering these supplies for your child would be great for a # of reasons: (1) fine motor practice, (2) a quiet independent activity for your child (while you prepare dinner!), or (3) a special one-on-one activity with your munchkin:-)
P.S. You can put objects other than the ones included here.
