#60 - Inside The Sensory Toolbox Membership

Welcome back my friend to another episode of the podcast. Today's episode is going to be a little different. Instead of our usual topics, I want to take some time to give you a sneak peek into something truly special – my membership program designed specifically for parents of sensational children, The Sensory Toolbox.

So what exactly is The Sensory Toolbox?

Before we dive in, you might be wondering, "What exactly is The Sensory Toolbox?" Well, let me break it down for you. The Sensory Toolbox, previously called the Food Explorers Membership, is an online monthly membership program created to support parents of children who are experiencing sensory and eating challenges. Think of it as your go-to resource hub, packed with tools, strategies, and insights to help you navigate your child's sensory journey with confidence.


A common struggle many parents face is navigating the complex world of sensory processing. As an occupational therapist with over a decade of experience, I've seen firsthand the challenges and frustrations that come with supporting children who have sensory needs. While therapy sessions are invaluable, they're often limited in time, especially for parent education, leaving parents feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about how to continue the progress at home. And this always weighed heavily on my mind as I was treating patients. I often found myself wishing I could do more to support parents outside of our sessions, to provide them with the extra help they desperately needed.

So, I created The Sensory Toolbox – to bridge the gap between therapy sessions and everyday life. I wanted to empower parents like you with practical strategies and insights to confidently support your child's sensory journey at home. Drawing from my own experiences, extensive research, and insights gained from working with families just like yours, I've poured my heart and soul into developing this program. 


But I don’t just want you to take it from me. Actually today as I am writing this episode a parent sent in a new testimonial that I would just love to share with you. Here’s what one parent had to say about The Sensory Toolbox.

Your heart to help people shines through all that you do! I am so impressed with the support you offer, the way you listen to people, and the quick and actionable activities.”

But then I also asked her, what she would say to someone who is maybe considering joining The Sensory Toolbox, and she said:

“You will learn so much! I had no idea so many factors went into trying a new food. I have changed the way I introduce foods to my boys and my expectations. Sam is so caring and helpful- you won’t regret joining.”

But what will you find inside the membership?


Well this is just my favorite topic, because I am obsessed with the resources in the membership. 


  1. Unlimited Access to Online Portal: When you join you get unlimited access to a literal treasure trove of trainings, guides, and tools covering various topics such as general sensory processing, classroom strategies, feeding information, and more. But…it doesn’t just stay stagnant….

  2. Monthly Sensory Solutions: Each month, I also release brand new feeding or sensory content, including mini-classes, guides, expert visits, and more. This year, I’m putting a big focus on creating really easy to use resources, that you can quickly glance over & implement.

  3. Monthly Food Play Activities: Food exploration can be a daunting task for many parents, which is why I curate monthly food play activities designed to make mealtime a fun and enjoyable experience for both you and your child.

  4. Exclusive Discounts (Coming Soon): As a member of The Sensory Toolbox, you'll also have access to exclusive discounts from feeding and sensory brands that I personally love and recommend.

  5. Mealtime Handbook: Have a burning question about mealtime struggles? The membership has a comprehensive Mealtime Handbook is to provide quick answers to common questions. The really cool thing is that you can actually put your question into the search bar and look for it! And if it’s not there, you just drop a comment, and I’ll answer your question ASAP.

But of course, joining a membership can feel kind of overwhelming initially. So I also provide you with a couple of resources to help keep you on track. So we have a step-by-step roadmap to guide you through your first 12 weeks as a member of The Sensory Toolbox. Additionally, you’ll receive monthly roundup emails to let you know what’s new each month, and if you choose to, you can also sign up for weekly text messages with reminders, tips, and motivation!

Will It Work? Setting Expectations:

Now, you might be wondering – will The Sensory Toolbox work for me and my child? It's important to have the right expectations. Success with The Sensory Toolbox isn't just about quick fixes – it's about discovering what works best for your child and celebrating every small step forward. Progress takes time and patience, but rest assured, I'll be here every step of the way to support you and cheer you on. I will say, the biggest roadblock I see parents struggle with is consistency - so when you join one of the things I recommend doing is actually putting a consistent time in your calendar to utilize the membership - so you can maximize your learning experience.


What do wins look like?


  • Knowing how to confidently navigate and help your child on those tough (but inevitable) sensory days

  • Understanding what sensory input helps your child's unique body stay regulated on a day-to-day basis and at their just-right sensory temperature

  • Supporting your child through food exploration activities no matter where their comfort level is with that food

  • Your child tasting a food without the fight, and CHOOSING to do it on their own

  • Strategically choosing foods to introduce that works for your child's body and sensory system

  • Being able to intentionally choose strategies to support your child's body when their body isn't feeling just-right


Those are the kinds of wins we look for and celebrate in the membership.

So, are you ready to unlock the power of the senses with The Sensory Toolbox? Well then, I’ve got some VERY exciting news for you. For a very short time, I’m offering an exclusive discount for 10% off your first payment. And when you choose the annual option, that actually gets you 2 free months of The Sensory Toolbox THIS YEAR!  If you're ready to embark on this sensational journey and gain access to a wealth of resources, support, and guidance, I invite you to join us today.

But….I know everyone loves a good sneak peek, so I also wanted to give you a little behind the scene into what kind of resources you can expect to launch in the Sensory toolbox this year…

  • In January, we released School Lunch Ideas for Picky Eaters & Children with Feeding Challenges, a brand new ebook designed to help you more easily pack lunches for your sensational eater.

  • February, brought an incredible masterclass called - A Parent's Guide to Teaching Self-Regulation Skills to Your Child. This one is seriously incredible - As you know, I’m big on the why behind sensory processing, but this training also walks you through the how - how to help you and your child start tuning in to their personal sensory preferences and needs. Trust me, you’ll also LOVE The sensory thermometer handout.

  • And there's so much more to come this year! Members will be keeping an eye out for a safety guide for mealtime, self-regulation cards for you and your child to use together, a training on how to navigate sensory challenges this summer, guides for dentist and doctor visits, fun fine motor activities, and much more.

Again, you don’t want to miss out on all of this, especially not that amazing discount. Enter TOOLBOX at checkout to claim it. Again, the website to join is www.drsamgoldman.com/sensorytoolbox and i absolutely cannot wait to see you inside.
