  • Sensory Overload & Santa

    Recently I received an email from one of the families I work with who has a young 3yr old child who has sensory integration challenges.  This wee one gets overloaded very easily when it comes to new people or new places or new anything.  Mom and Dad thought it would be nice this past weekend to take the kids to meet and have pictures ...

  • Shopping for children with special needs ...

    Hi all!   How is everyone doing with their holiday shopping?  I was out today for the first time and was able to at least get a small dent in what I will need for family & friends. I have to admit, even for me without too many major sensory issues, it was a bit over whelming - the crowds, the loud music, ...

  • Feeding Difficulties - Ability vs Motivation

    One of the most challenging things when it comes to working with a family who has a child who ''won't eat'' is figuring out how much of it may be due to the child's inability to eat (sensory problems, physical problems, processing disorders, etc) and how much may be due to the child's lack of motivation to eat.  The former is much easier to ...

  • One word: "support"

    No matter who you are or what you do I truly believe that the one word that can help each and everyone of us through the challenges we may face in our lives is the word ''support''.   Think about it.  When you are having a tough day, when everything seems to go wrong or everything you try and do just doesn't work the way you want it ...

  • A Personal View of Autism

    Working in the Birth-to-three population we work with a wide range of developmental disabilities and handicaps.  Autism is one of the most challenging because... well, Autism is a mystery in many ways.  There is no rhyme or reason right now which children will ''get'' Autism, nor why or how it happens.  There are theories and ...
