For today's activity you will need a straw, two bowls, and some small treats like cheerios or m&m's. (Please supervise children when dealing with objects small enough to choke on). Strong suck is regulating and can help calm an overresposive nervous system.
Let us know in the comments if/how your child's behavior changed after this activity.
