Wiggly Worm Sensory Processing

Our trained staff in Salt Lake City and Provo, Utah offer a special 8-week class series for parents and their child with sensory processing issues. The Wiggly Worm class series is geared toward children preschool through age six and

  • Provides a better understanding of each sensory area,
  • Teaches how to recognize sensory processing issues in your child,
  • Teaches how to respond more effectively and make your child’s world and your home happier and more peaceful.

Each class builds upon skills learned the previous week, so attending all sessions is very important. At the end of the classes parents will come away with a personalized sensory program that supports their child’s ability to focus and learn. Please contact Devon at devong@esgw.org for more information.
