@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @allisulli @Tchamp13 I had similar experiences when I went to HK during Christmas 2 yrs ago. #otalk2us
(Mon, 03 Dec 2012 00:27:20 +0000)
@otnotes @gilliancrossley I agree… I hate shopping to start with d/t 2 many choices= overstimulating, and then the crowds make it worse! #otalk2us

@Tchamp13 #OTalk2US Great answers everyone! RIght on! How about some positives of SOR?

@gilliancrossley @Tchamp13 concentration and being overwhelmed by the sensory overload can may everything seem harder. anxiety provoking #otalk2us

@Tchamp13 #OTalk2US we often hear of the negatives, but there are positives to all sensory patterns

@Tchamp13 #OTalk2US One great positive I heard was that SOR patterns make ppl very attentive to details, “supersonic” hearing for example
(Mon, 03 Dec 2012 00:29:58 +0000)

(Mon, 03 Dec 2012 00:32:38 +0000)

(Mon, 03 Dec 2012 00:57:35 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Tchamp13 yes… that’s important. Sometimes I advice parents to do walk throughs to places their child may go beforehand. #otalk2us
