July 27 2009 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.

Encouraging Fussy Babies and Sensitive Toddlers
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art62765.asp

Most babies have fussy periods, and toddlers go through stages where they are uncomfortably sensitive to touch or texture. Parents of those who experience ongoing sensory defensiveness, sensory integration challenges or a sensory processing disorder appreciate soothing S.I. therapy techniques that are also comforting for their mainstream peers.
