Here is a sample sensory diet, created for a second grade child with sensory processing disorder. Note that activities must be individualized for each child and modified frequently to meet changing needs. A separate program was worked out for this child with the school, including frequent movement breaks, an inflatable seat cushion for wiggling while remaining seated, and providing crunchy/chewy oral comfort snacks at handwriting time.
In the Morning
* Massage feet and back to help wake up
* Go to playground for at least 30 minutes
* Help with cooking, mixing, chopping, etc.
* Family time: clay projects, painting projects, etc.
