Reply L T April 13, 2016 i have spd please make a video of stuff you can do on your own to help your sensory needs Reply Cassie Spicer May 6, 2016 My son is severely Autistic and is in the local ABa program and the OT has shown me to do the brushing technique at home… sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't …But he also has cp…so what would you suggest me to do if I do the deep pressure massage but he can't do the jumping jacks afterwards? Thank you for making this video.. I'm excited too try some of these on my son! 🙂 Reply Lindz May 17, 2016 I need this . Thank you so much for sharing! Reply Olena Shaforost May 17, 2016 Good techniques, but I would suggest to do integration of primitive reflexes first. I believe all people with SPD and autism have quite a few primitive reflexes non-inhibited, and it causes sensory processing disorder (at least 80% of it). Their integration with special exercises (the process may take up to 2 years) will treat a lot of sensory processing problems. The strategies from this video one can do in-between just to calm down. A couple of those exercises are a bit similar to calming reflex integration exercises described by Dr Blomberg in his "Rhythmic movement training" program. Here are a few more other programs: INPP (in England), Pyramid of potential, Masgutova method and others. Reply Christina Lortan July 12, 2016 I tried some of these techniques last night on my 4yr old and instead of making him calm, I did go slowly, he amped up. He started acting mindless, like his thinking brain switched off. I've seen him like that before and can't put my finger on what's happened to get him into that state. his behaviour becomes compulsively hyperactive. Any thoughts on what could've happened? He has been diagnosed with SPD. Reply Vicky Jin January 24, 2017 Thank you so much for sharing!

I roll myself tightly in my weighted blanket, and it's very calming and regulating when my nervous system is overloaded. Reply Francisco Ribeiro January 10, 2018 Seems very effective Reply Azni Alias January 22, 2018 What is the purpose of the blanket roll? Reply Hey hey! January 23, 2018 God Bless you. Reply Támara Hill, MS NCC CCTP LPC January 24, 2018 This seems like a good technique for kids who like to be held or rocked when upset. In fact, I think of massage therapy when watching this. He's getting a mini message as well as attention from his mom. He looks like he is falling asleep! He's too cute! I often thought of suggesting a vibrating pillow or chair to some of my parents who have children with autism. Although it may not have the exact effect on the child, it might be a cheap way to stimulate the senses of a child on the spectrum. Reply Rita Elise Solberg February 2, 2018 I am a OT student and do many and similar things with my son. But never learnt, just intuitively and things he and i together found to be soothing for him. He isn`t autistic but very active and has some tight muscles. He really calms down with firm stimulation in variation with nonfirm, especially at night 🙂 Exciting to see it in structured form! Can anyone recommend some released studies on this subject? Would be great to have some evidence base 🙂 Reply Emmanuela Hinda February 15, 2018 love this thanks for sharing Reply Paramita Chatterjee February 23, 2018 my son is going to be 3 yrs.day by day he becomes very hyperactive.di is diagnosed by adhd.plz tell me can those exercise make my son really calm?
