Q.

Sensory Modulation Disorder

My child is 4 1/2. Her teachers initially recommended that she do physio for weak gross motor muscles. Her physio is now happy with her progress and has indicated that she believes my child has Sensory Modulation Disorder. What can you advise me with regards to this.. . What activities can i do with her to start addressing the problem as i am battling to find an SI OT that is able to help at the moment.
