Mary and Devon (2 yrs. hypotonia and dev. delays) here.
We are occasional lurkers here and I would love to hear stories of other sensory avoiders.
Devon has always been on the low arousal side. She can look sleepy but lots of times, its because she needs a little "wake up" and I will bounce her and she'll perk up. When she was younger, she is tactile defensive when she was younger, she didn't want to touch much so exploration was very limited. She has come a long way but has a long way to go. She used to startle to loud sounds a lot too and going to places where there are lights and loud sounds was a nightmare.
Can anyone relate? How did your los overcome? I imaging this can impede in los ability to learn?
Please share your stories.
