We are doing a weeks worth of intensive OT with Heidi after school for an hour each day.
It took Heidi about an hour of intensive OT to calm down after a very wound up day.
Certainly seems like she has hit sensory overload and hopefully an intense week of calming sensory input will bring Heidi down to normal again.
Watching Heidi throughout today and she was like a wind up toy that was slowly wound and wound and wound throughout the day and at the end of school day she gets home and starts to unwind. Manically and crazily.
So we are working on more sensory breaks during the day to help Heidi unwind in shorter, more frequent, controlled bursts. Getting wound up so tight is not good and neither is the resulting explosion.
