Accommodating Sensory Processing Differences is a NEED

Feb 28, 2024

I've had quite a few conversations recently with neurodivergent parents who have been giving themselves a hard time for finding it difficult to 'push through' certain sensory experiences and feeling guilty about making adjustments.

If you relate to this, offering a gentle reminder:

Our sensory experience plays an important role in our overall health and wellbeing.

Accommodation sensory processing differences is a NEED and not just a 'nice to have'.

Sensory processing differences are common for neurodivergent folk. When people are routinely exposed to sensory experiences that are not a good match, the body is working harder to navigate that experience and is more likely to be under stress.

Create Vitality offers sensory profile assessments to neurodivergent parents who would like a formal assessment to help understand their sensory needs. However, paying attention how you feel in your everyday tasks, activities and environments can also start to give you clues about your sensory needs.


You and your family deserve wellbeing.
