Heavy work is any type of activity that pushes or pulls against the body. Heavy work activities can help people with sensory processing difficulties feel regulated. It can help them feel centered and calm and therefore promotes a “readiness to learn” in those who access it. It engages the proprioception sense and promotes body and spatial awareness. Heavy work activities can be carried out throughout the day as part of a daily routine.
