Conditions that affect physical sensitivity or preference to being touched
Allow additional space for children and clear paths to and from the gaming table. Additionally if on a rectangular table, a child may prefer to be positioned at a corner, providing them a maximum amount of space to either side but do not suggest that as a default. Ask their preferences of seating arrangements and attempt to accommodate them.
It is important to communicate with the group with regard to the child’s preferences, and explain that the preference is not an indication of personal preference or rejection of fellow players, but simply a unique quality of the player. Explain that all people have unique qualities that are only a part of but not defining the individual.
