About the event
Join Balanced Child Pediatric Therapy's occupational therapist, Samantha Freas, OTR/L, for a free seminar on Sensory Strategies for the Home on March 23, 2021.

Some signs to look for include:
- Difficulty transitioning between activities
- Frequent meltdowns and tantrums, especially those which are prolonged and triggered by sensory experiences, such as loud noises, certain food textures, bright lights, intense movement, etc.
- Difficulty maintaining attention and controlling impulses
- Frequent movement
- Seeks deep pressure, small spaces, climbs on furniture or other unsafe surfaces
- Difficulty controlling and managing emotions independently
- Challenges with coordination and/or delayed milestones (speech, motor, cognitive, etc.)
One-on-one consultations will be offered following the webinar for families to receive individualized coaching from Samantha Freas, OTR/L to address specific needs of their children and family.
We look forward to seeing you on March 23 for this informative and exciting event!
