Did You Know That Heavy Work Calms And Organizes The Body?
Crawling, pushing, pulling, lifting, climbing and "crashing" all provide input to receptors deep in the muscles and joints that provide calming input to the body. Just like using the fitness equipment or weights at a health club, the "just right" feeling is still around 2 hours after the workout. By providing this type of regular input it would be possible to feel "just right" throughout the waking hours. Work with a therapist to develop this type of "sensory diet" for your children. When in doubt, "move, move, move!"
