Behavior Struggles? Sensory Struggles?

What do you do when your child is struggling and you don’t know what to do?

If you’re like the rest of us, you Google search, ask a friend, ask teachers, search YouTube, Facebook groups, Pinterest…anything we can think of to find answers and help.

Have you ever had the feeling that your child’s body isn’t functioning properly and it’s causing their life to not be as good as it could be? Maybe your child is super irritable, sleeping poorly, not nursing very well, throwing tantrums for the smallest things…

It’s the worst feeling to feel like you don’t know how to help your child.

Afterall, you’re the mom. You want things to be okay for your little one and you feel responsible to solve everything. If you don’t know what to do to solve it, it’s very easy to feel like you’re doing something wrong. Your child relies on you to have all the answers and to make life great, peaceful, comfortable and calm for them.

So when you don’t know what to do for them, it’s the easiest thing in the world to allow yourself to be filled with unnecessary guilt and shame.

Let’s set the foundation. If you care – then you’re doing it right and you’re doing an awesome job.

Keep caring. Keep pursuing…and you will find answers. God is so good. As the scripture assures, “Seek and ye will find.”

What is a “sensory” struggle?

Sensory refers to anything that has to do with the senses. Commonly the senses are sight, sound, taste, touch and smell. However, there are two more senses in the human body. Meaning, we humans receive information into our brain about these senses. So as far as sight, sound, taste, touch and smell…our brain gets information through our eyes, ears, mouth, skin, and nose.

The brain also receives sensory information from (1) our inner ear, and most importantly, (2) the movement of our spine.

In fact, 80% of the sensory information the brain receives comes through movement of our spine.

So it makes sense, if the spine isn’t working properly in your child, for whatever reason…accident, injury, trauma (and most often because of unintentional trauma to their little bodies coming into this world – otherwise known as birth trauma) then their brains are getting a stunted amount of sensory information to their brain and from their brain to their body.

Make sense?

That’s what drives us here at Radiant Life

– to empower you to help your child by freeing the ability of their spines to function properly – to live their best as God intended. Freeing their brain to be able to communicate with the functions of their body so they can work as God designed. Free of meltdowns, free of social fears, free of miscommunication.

One mom described the change in her son after beginning care at Radiant Life like this, “Now, he’s much more social. He’s relaxed. Early on, if the waiting room was too full, we’d have to leave and walk the hall until his turn because it would be too upsetting to him to be in there with so many people. He would get this shocked look on his face and shut down. And now he’s socializing and making friends and teasing the doctors.

It’s huge. It’s just huge to see him happy.”
