  • Well...it all depends on what your child can tolerate.
    Is he/she sensitive to light,crowds,sounds,smells,textures,etc?

  • He doesn't have many sensitivity issues mainly he doesn't like crowds in unfamiliar places. I am really interested in speaking with other parents that share my concerns to see what is working for them. I have thought about martial arts yet I am not confident that it will suit his taste.
