This week’s episode is brought to you by a listener question - Why do children struggle with smells? What can be done to help a child tolerate the variety of smells in a school lunchroom? Our sense of smell - our olfactory sense - plays a huge role in our daily routines, including eating and social situations but also when we clean, walk through the store, and even sleep! So when our sense of smell is over-responsive, it can cause some serious challenges! Be ready to take some notes and make sure you share this episode with your friends and family!
