                 SENSORY ISSUES                
         TEN WAYS THAT CONFIRM YOU ARE           
       A PARENT OF A CHILD WITH SENSORY ISSUES         

 

  1.   Instead of lists to organize your schedule, you start doodling
         Mayer Johnson pictures.

  2.   A statement like "Our OT ordered AIT, ASAP, to help with SI"
        makes perfect sense to you.

  3.   You order at a restaurant not necessarily what you have a 
        taste for, but according to food color and texture.

  4.   You go new clothes shopping at second-hand shops
        (no breaking in necessary!).

  5.   The  barber tools required  for your  child's  haircut includes
        sedatives, a flashlight or night vision goggles, and a scissors
        silencer.

  6.   You  break into hysterical  fits of  laughter  when the doctor 
        sends in only one nurse to give your child his immunization, 
        and she  exclaims "It will only take a second!"

  7.   Seven different meals need to be prepared for your family 
        of four.

  8.  The thought of your child's upcoming dental  visit gives you        
       anxiety attacks that require medications and therapy.   

  9.  You do a dance of victory after dry-kissing your daughter 
       and she doesn't wipe her mouth afterwards.

10.   You start wearing your socks and underwear inside-out 
        because  it really does feel more comfortable that way.
