Game Changer: Creating a 'Travel Toolkit' for Your Child with SPD
Traveling with any child can be a daunting experience, but traveling with a child who has sensory processing disorder or autism can be especially difficult. Children with sensory processing issues can be oversensitive to sights, sounds, textures, flavors, smells, and other sensory input. While parents can regulate these in their homes and daily lives, the sights, sounds, and smells while traveling can be an assault on someone with sensory processing disorder (SPD).
In the course of our family's many travels, I've developed what I call an SPD Travel Toolkit. This toolkit is used to help my son with SPD regulate himself better when he's having sensory issues on our vacations.
