Home Solutions to Cope with Sensory Processing Issues and Sensitivities

It’s hard to show sensitivity for things you can’t see. It can also be difficult enough “just” to open up about your struggles. It’s often even more difficult to ask for what you need, lest you feel like a burden or demanding to family and loved ones.

These are huge obstacles to the critical task of building community and support, particularly for people with disabilities.

Most material available on sensory processing issues focuses on children – likely since that is the common age of diagnosis - but these problems affect people of all ages and can be extremely disruptive. Because of misguided brain signaling, specific sensory triggers – of any sense - can become absolutely debilitating and unbearable.

In this piece, after a brief overview of the issues, we’ve compiled a list of tips to be aware of and help alleviate the symptoms at home. At the very least, we hope this piece facilitates safe, open conversations between you and your loved ones about how to best be supportive.
