It was an honor to be interviewed by my friend and mentor, Melanie Potock tonight! She’s a rock star pediatric feeding specialist, an international speaker and author of three books, including co-authoring the award-winning Raising a Healthy Happy Eater. I shared a TON of great musical resources for both parents and therapists. It's needed NOW more than ever!!!

My most recent video blog post shows my work with a young man with Autism who is also blind. He often experiences anxiety and so we are focusing on some relaxation strategies. 

Whether you are a parent, teacher or therapist, you can try these strategies with individuals who experience stress and anxiety. 

So what can you do to help someone with anxiety? You can:

  • Have calming instrumental music playing at 60 to 90 beats per minute (resting heart rate). You can find the music I used in this video from my album of relaxation music called, An Open Sky. 
  • Use slow, deep breathing techniques as illustrated in this video.
  • Lead some simple seated yoga moves and pair these with slow deep breaths
  • Write a song about using deep breathes to calm oneself. Or you can just use mine!!! :)
  • Pair taking slow deep breaths with a soothing instrument such as a lap harp or a rain stick. 
  • Keep your words and directives/prompts to a minimum.
  • Turn down the lights! Avoid using fluorescents if possible.
  • Give a fidget toy or mouthing/chew toy to help them get the sensory input that they need to become regulated.
  • Use deep pressure if that what your child craves (consult with an OT about how to do this).
  • Many people also respond well to swinging so if you have a swing, use it.
  • Consult with an Occupational or Physical Therapist! OT's and PT's can be great resources for sensory regulation strategies.
  • As with any intervention, it all depends on the individual and his/her specific needs and challenges, so be observant and try to learn more about their sensory needs.
