New page about Sensory Processing in Teens:

In this information era we tend to put little emphasis on physical exercise and even at school it seems to have low priority. 
Generally speaking , physical activities have a positive affect on all teens for example biking to school, sports, dancing. If an older child or teenager has more than average problems with sensory processing, it can be necessary to put an extra demand on his tactile and vestibular or balancing system. This will enforce these bodily senses, so that he will start to "feel" better in both senses of the word.

The sensory games are not necessarily childish; it only takes some modification. It is crucial that your older child or teenager takes the initiative in tackling his problems.

You find activities, games and other information for your teens on this new web page
