SmartKnit Kids Socks - Seamless Socks for Children with Sensory Processing Disorders

| From

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Nov. 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In some homes, a kid's sock is just that: a sock, say the folks at Diabetic Sock Store. But in Melissa Bruner's home, socks are the inciter of one colossal tantrum. Daily, the crying and screaming commences when Melissa simply asks her 6-year-old son Conner to put on his socks.

"Every morning I feel like I'm going into battle. All I have to do is ask him to put on his socks and shoes and he goes ballistic," says Melissa.

At first, Melissa just thought Conner was being very difficult, but after reading about children who have sensory processing disorders, Melissa realized that socks are a real issue for Conner.

Sensory Processing Disorders, or SPD, is often used to describe kids who are highly sensitive and whose senses seem to be on high alert. SPD is a complex disorder of the brain that affects developing children and adults. People with SPD misinterpret everyday sensory information, such as touch, sound, and movement. They often times feel overwhelmed by their senses. Sock seams hurt, clothing tags itch, foods can't have lumps or other textures, noises can't be tolerated, and even hugs can become unbearable.

When children with SPD are accurately identified, they can begin a program of occupational therapy. Occupational therapy is conducted in a sensory-rich environment, and helps these children to manage their responses to sensations and to behave in a more functional manner.

After learning about SPD, Melissa began taking Conner to an occupational therapist.

"The occupational therapy is really helping Conner adjust to his environment," says Melissa. "We were still struggling with his socks until the occupational therapist recommended that I try to find Conner a special type of socks called SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Sensitivity Socks."

To help parent's win the battle against sock seams, SmartKnit(R) brand socks offer SmartKnitKIDS(TM) Seamless Sensitivity Socks. These super soft socks are perfect for children who refuse to wear socks with seams, and for those with sensory processing differences.

SmartKnitKIDS(TM) socks are completely seamless and the form-fitting design ensures that socks fit like a second skin - they don't wrinkle or bunch. The socks also have a special top, which doesn't have an elastic band. This special "halo top" design ensures that socks won't fit too tightly, or cause painful indentations.

"SmartKnitKIDS(TM) are the only socks Conner will wear," says Melissa. "I actually don't even have to ask him to put on his socks, he just does it himself. No more morning battles and no more crying."

SmartKnitKIDS(TM) Seamless socks are available online at in ages 1-3, 3-5, and 5-9. The special heel-free design ensures that socks comfortably fit all shoe sizes.
