Dear Members of ChildForum
I’ve recently been approached by the mother of a child with ASD and Sensory Integration Disorder.
He is 3 and a half and finds a standard ECE environment too overwhelming – noise in particular but also visual stimulation and movement affect him adversely.
We had a long discussion about the unspoken belief that all children thrive in a visual stimulating and noisy environment.
The mother has investigated Rudolf Steiner but waiting lists are long and she worries still that the environment might be overpowering.
ECE centres all seem to all provide a veritable circus of colour, text, images and sounds.
