Guest: Amy Schnacker, OTR/L

The holiday season is full of fun and excitement - lots of time with family and friends, cookie decorating, present wrapping, songs, events, the list goes on and on. And while the holidays are a special time of year, they can also be overwhelming. 

In this episode of Helping Kids Thrive, Nicole speaks with pediatric occupational therapist, Amy Schnacker, OTR/L, about holiday stress and sensory overload in order to help parents better understand how their children may be experiencing the sensory input around them and develop practical strategies to help. 

Episode highlights:

  • Considerations of sensory input specifically to the holiday season
  • Proactive solutions to helping prevent sensory overwhelm
  • Tips and tricks to help your child process during a busy event
  • Ways for you as a parent to cope with unexpected changes in plans
