  • Overcoming Sensory Defensive Behaviors (hand play)

    We've probably all seen a child with sensory defensive behaviors relating to their hand play skills.  They're the ones who shrink away when it's time to finger paint.  They will go to any other place in the classroom or playgroup other than the sensory table.  Don't even bring out the play-doh or clay to play with!  And if it ...

  • Tis the season ... to get overwhelmed...

    ''and the stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there ... ''  I can't believe that Christmas is just a few days away.  I'm actually a little more ahead this year than I thought I would be.  I have a good number of packages wrapped and under the tree and just a couple of things left ...

  • Tuesday Tidbit - Meeting Santa

    What do you call someone who is afraid of Santa Claus?                   Claustrophobic      It's that time of year again - time to take pictures with Santa!  Most parents can't wait to get that picture of their little one sitting on ...

  • Tuesday Tidbit - Nuk brush 2 ~ local sightings ~

    In an earlier blog post I had spoken about the usefulness of the Nuk Brush and listed several places that sell it.  The sites I listed were therapy sites as that was the only place I have been able to find them.  Until now, that is.  Last Friday I was in a local Toys R Us store, browsing the aisles on my way to the play-doh ...

  • Snow - not just an outdoor sensory experience...

    I was working with a kiddo at a daycare a couple weeks ago after we had a substancial snowfall.  The kids were all excited about the snow but it was too cold to go outside and play.  The daycare provider grabbed two medium sized, see through tupperware containers and went outside.  She came back a few moments later with them ...

  • 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 ...

  • Tuesday Tidbit - The Spit Cup

    When it comes to picky eaters one of the biggest challenges we have as therapists is getting the child to even taste something.  There is, of course, an entire protocol to getting a sensory defensive child to allow food to be 1) in the room, 2) on the table, 3) on their plate, 4) on their spoon/fork, 5) near their mouth, 6) in their ...

  • Tuesday Tidbits - The Ever Versatile Bubbles

    I am always amazed at how the majority of kids just love bubbles.  All you have to do is pull out a bottle of bubbles and kids seem to appear out of the wood work... waiting in anticipation for that first wave of round colorful bubbles to appear so they can chase after them and pop them.  I have found, though, that bubbles have many uses ...
