Occupational therapists know that sensory diets need to be custom made to meet the specific sensory needs of each individual. However, determining the activities to include in a sensory diet is not always black and white. An individual can be under-responsive in one sensory area, and over-responsive in another. This is why I find the sensory symptoms checklist from Sensational Brain to be a wonderful tool.
There are currently three versions available on their website sensationalbrain.com. Oh! and the best part is… they are all free. Below you will find a direct link to each checklist.
