What is it like to have a sensory processing issue?
“Your body feels wiggly, and you can’t control it,” said Julian Carty, 7.
“It’s hard to do it,” he said.
“It took me a while to figure it out.”
After lots of practice, and lots of therapy, Carty has a good enough handle on his issues to make it through the school day while keeping focus.
Afterwards, though, he often wants to come home and crash into a beanbag chair, or run around the yard of his Collingswood home with friends.
Come Saturday, however, he’ll have a different option. That’s when his mom, Pip Carty cuts the ribbon on the new Audubon location of her sensory-friendly gym, We Rock the Spectrum.
