Children with strong sensory challenges

Guh! My 2 are so opposite in every sense of the word- right down to their sensory profile- every single thing one does seems to set off the other- and we have to have a massive range of sensory equipment because they have such diverse needs! And they know exactly how to set each other off too- my daughter just has to lightly brush past her brother with one finger and he is screaming his head off and she says with such a wicked smirk ‘I hardly touched him- it was an accident’ 🤦‍♀️

Blergh, sibling dynamics can be so difficult to manage!! Our child psych is a miracle worker, highly recommend for anyone experiencing similar. Right there with you sister ✌️

It’s so specific to the children together and individually.! My boys are fantastic on screens playing multiplayer! This was a big help as it meant that whilst we could manage the behaviour in many settings, they were actually able to get some positive time together. So I guess finding how they can do things together to build a better rapport. We found a lot of things were habitual and also they were triggered just existing together. I was over it so I couldn’t build that positive time (or even think to do it!) I’d just want a break from the fighting! But now I know it really helps offset the triggered annoyance. Doing special things just with me also good. Group bonding! So often I wouldn’t as o was a bit strung out. But if word salad there haha maybe something is useful

I hear you. 2 of my girls clash all the time, there sensory issues are different and they just don't understand each other and do not have understanding of each other. In some way similar because both stubborn in their ways but completely different. Sending you hugs. It is not easy to navigate
