Essential oils can be used as a therapeutic sensory tool to promote self-regulation. When we breath in an aroma, this sensory information is sent straight to the limbic system of the brain – this is our our emotional switchboard. This may be why smells are so successful at influencing emotions….. and therefore behaviour.
Therapeutic Activities. This is a term that parents of children on the spectrum will often hear. It is encouraged to incorporate therapeutic activities into your daily routine to help your child meet their developmental milestones, expose them to multi-sensory environments and encourage social interactions.
