Finally Understand Sensory Processing & What You Can Do to Help the Senses Feel Their Best, So Life Can Be a Little Less ChaoticStart Learning
The Sensory System Doesn't Have to Be So Confusing
If you're like many of my clients, the sensory system feels like the great unknown. You feel like you're holding your breath, and walking on eggshells, because you never know what to expect. School, work, eating, or outings feel exhausting because it seems like no matter what you do, a sensory meltdown is inevitable. The thing is...even in those tough moments, the body is sending you sensory messages of what it needs to feel it's best. You just need to learn how to decode it! When you do, that's where the magic happens. Because you can proactively provide the body with the sensory input it needs to feel good, and confidently respond when life doesn't go as planned (because it rarely does). So if you're looking to make sense of the senses, then you're in the right place!
And That's Exactly What I'm Here to Help You With!
But first, let me tell you a bit about me. Again, my name is Sam and I'm a pediatric occupational & feeding therapist. I was gifted the humbling opportunity to support children and their families through life's toughest moments, both in and out of the hospital over the last 9+ years.
While working in the hospital systems, I become increasingly frustrated at the lack of education about sensory processing, developing, & eating for families. The interesting thing about therapy is that you only see your therapist 1-2 times a week for 30-60 minute sessions. So much of the progress happens at home. But we lack of time & resources needed to adequately educate families on what they needed to know in order to feel confident practicing at home!
I searched and searched online for articles and education to send to parents, so they could understand what was going on in sessions as much as possible, but I wasn't happy with what I was finding.
So I decided to create better ones for you! Now I'm teaching you the ins and outs of sensory processing, and how to choose the best strategies for you, your child, or your client's unique body so not only can you survive the day, but have fun doing it.
