How to Help Sensory Processing Disorders
Make a Sensory Friendly Environment
Modify your home environment to be sensory-friendly. This includes reducing clutter, providing a quiet space for relaxation, and controlling lighting and sound.
Ensure that your child's personal space is organized and comfortable, allowing them to retreat when sensory overload occurs.
Be Patient and Understanding!
Maintain open communication with your child to understand their sensory sensitivities and preferences. Be empathetic, patient, and supportive.
Listen to their cues and respect their boundaries.
Educate family members and caregivers about your child's needs to ensure a consistent and supportive environment.
Create a Sensory "Diet" or Routines
Work with an occupational therapist to create a sensory diet or routine that provides sensory input in a controlled and organized manner.
Incorporate activities that meet your child's sensory needs, such as swinging, brushing, or fidget tools, to help them self-regulate.
Seek Professional Support
Seek the guidance of a qualified occupational therapist who specializes in SPD. They can provide appropriate assessments and therapies.
Collaborate with your child's school to create an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that addresses their sensory needs. Advocate for accommodations specific to your child's needs.

Promoting Proper Development from Conception Onward
It may very well "take a village to raise a child," but the days of villages, communities, and even extended families in raising children are long lost. Without built-in supports, many modern parents of the neurodivergent find themselves utterly exhausted, overwhelmed, lost, guilt-ridden, and burnt out.
NeurOm is here to help fill that void.
At NeurOm, our vision is to rekindle the spirit of the village in today's modern world, providing a robust and compassionate support system for parents and caregivers of neurodivergent children. We aspire to create a community that surrounds these families with unwavering support, understanding, and resources, enabling them to navigate the neurodivergent journey with resilience, hope, and the assurance that they are never alone.
Community Reimagined: We believe in redefining the concept of 'it takes a village' for the modern age, building a virtual village that spans the globe and is there for every caregiver of a neurodivergent child.
Empathetic Connection: We are committed to fostering deep connections within our community, where empathy, active listening, and shared experiences create bonds that strengthen and uplift.
Resilience and Hope: We provide not just support but also a wellspring of hope and resilience to caregivers, helping them find strength in their journey.
Guidance and Resources: We offer a wealth of carefully curated resources, information, and expert guidance to empower caregivers with knowledge and options.
Inclusivity: Our village welcomes all, regardless of background, geography, or neurodivergent condition, and we celebrate the rich tapestry of diversity within our community.
Preventing Burnout: We are dedicated to ensuring that caregivers have the tools and support needed to prevent burnout, guilt, and overwhelm, promoting their own well-being as they care for their children.
Advocacy for Change: We advocate for a world where neurodivergent children and their families are fully embraced and supported, striving for systemic change in education, healthcare, and societal attitudes.
With this vision, NeurOm envisions a world where caregivers of neurodivergent children are no longer isolated or overwhelmed but are part of a thriving global village that stands by their side, offering strength, resources, and hope throughout their journey.
