The Out-of-Sync Child author has another book, The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun. Make the therapies as fun as possible. My now 5 year old has graduated beyond the fear of textured or stuck on things to his hands. He would help me in the kitchen with beans and rice. I would have him use his hand to move handfuls from one pot to another. Eventually he was not fearful of the texture and was able to do it. Since then no problems with glue or clay. We still have food, shyness and sleep time issues. But being diligent is best and keep doing the fun therapies. They do work....eventually. Patience and love to you.

Hi Sweta!

I recommend finding an occupational therapist that has been trained in sensory integration therapy.

Also there are great ideas on this website of how to stimulate sensory systems.

Keep well!
