episode forty-eight: Proprioceptive Sense

In this episode of the Fringy Bit, Heather and Jon talk all things proprioceptive. Many of our fringy kids (gifted, asd, 2e, spd, adhd, and other differently wired kiddos) struggle to get the right amount of proprioceptive input, which can lead to aggression, clumsiness, meltdowns, and more.  Join Heather and Jon as they share info, stories, and possible helps!

Mentioned in this Episode:
     Gold's Gym Weighted Vest

And a correction - KBear was listening to the podcast as I was editing it and she wanted to be sure all you bits know she actually has 8 pounds of weight in her vest, not 5.  :)
