What you once knew changes shape and flies away. You watch as your world morphs in front of your eyes….
Perhaps you can relate to this feeling of overwhelm and maybe a little bit of panic. An unexpected diagnosis can sometimes trigger this response.
As you’ve noticed, your child’s growth is more than just physical growth. From birth, children grow, develop, and learn inside and out.
How your child plays, learns, speaks, and behaves tells a whole lot about how your child is developing.
The brain is programmed by the sensory system and the sensory stimulation it receives. Many times a child who has sensory issues does not reach – or has trouble reaching – the appropriate developmental milestones.
Movement is the main factor for a milestone development.
Crawling, walking, or running become difficult if your child has trouble with coordination. A developmental delay in your child’s growth is not something they can “grow out of” on their own.
Milestones are skills your child learns at different times in their life as they grow. Skills like…taking their very first step, smiling when someone smiles at them, or waving.
These milestones are reached through sensory input from playing, learning, speaking, and behaving. But, they become a difficult task if they have autism or any sensory struggle.
When your child is struggling, you often wonder, how they’ll ever build confidence.
When your child is struggling, you often wonder, how they’ll ever build confidence. Perhaps never considering that the function of their spine is playing a significant part.
Confidence and self advocacy skills (their ability to speak up for their needs) are built little by little and require lots and lots of practice.
Social events, community service, interaction with others, learning to follow systems and learning how to set boundaries can be wonderful ways to help them gain confidence and life skills.
It’s important to remember…
The brain is the powerhouse of the body.
It tells every little cell, tissue, and nerve what to do and how to react. When there’s an imbalance in the sensory system, it can affect every part of your child’s body, including how they function, how they develop, and their overall quality of life, including their confidence.
Come in today for an evaluation of the function-ability of your child’s spine to allow them the freedom to develop confidence.
