Children who have experienced early life trauma can sometimes experience difficulties with their sensory processing. For example, they may present as hypervigilant to their environment (over responsive in visual and hearing sensation), and be defensive to nurturing touch, or touch that isn’t on their terms. Sometimes the child will be seeking constant movement and they may also struggle with their coordination. They may also find it difficult to accept co-regulation or be unable to self-regulate. This can all impact on their ability to function in everyday activities, and survival strategies can prevent them from always being able to access the cognitive (thinking) part of their brain.
On the 13th October we are delivering a small workshop for professionals and parents/carers on Sensory Processing and Attachment in our Nottinghamshire based clinic, Midlands Child and Family Therapy Centre .
