Toothbrushing is a skill that every child learns - but why do some children struggle more than others when it comes to brushing their teeth?
We break down the WHY behind a variety of challenges related to toothbrushing - specifically from a sensory perspective but also looking at the specific skills required.
Then we give you our favorite tips and tricks to try at home!
We also answer two listener questions at the end, so make sure you stick around!
Be sure to check out the show notes on our blog at Harkla.Co/Podcast.
