Sensory Processing Disorder

The Ultimate Resource for Parents & Teachers Raising Sensory Kids

“It is a no brainer,” my husband said to me as we scrolled through this year’s limited-time Super-Sensory Bundle offer, “Over $1000 worth of resources for less than $40? Yeah, I’m in.”

I didn’t say anything, just nodded, and clicked on the Gain Instant Access button. Boom.

I wasn’t sure I was going to buy the bundle this year. You see, I have been an author and buyer of this bundle for the past two years and thought, “What else could I possibly need to help guide my sons?”

Well, let me tell you…A LOT. This bundle opened my eyes to the range of challenges facing kids these days. And this bundle?
The resources give me assurance, tools, tactics, knowledge, confidence, and the feeling that I am in control, that I’ve got this…

As a mom to two children with extreme sensory challenges, this bundle offers me solutions. For example, this year, a psychiatrist identified our twice exceptional son as having heightened anxiety, which manifests in explosive behavior. So, when I saw that Shawna Wingert’s course Parenting Chaos: Practical Support and Encouragement for Parents of Explosive Children was part of the bundle, I nearly fell out of my chair. That course ALONE is worth the price of the bundle.

Gifted Brains

Then beyond that course, I found Colleen Kessler’s workshops on gifted and twice-exceptional kids: Helping Your Kids Through Anxiety, Overexcitabilities, Underachievement, & More.   Again, worth the cost of the bundle alone. AND then How to Handle Sensory-Based Anxiety by Natasha Daniels.

At this point in my journey, I am into absorbing as much information as possible. Therefore, I will know how to guide my sons. With that said, no matter where you are on your sensory journey, there is something in this bundle for you.

What is Sensory Processing & Does My Child Have Issues?

If you are just beginning your journey, there is a whole section of resources on Understanding and Advocating for Your Child’s Sensory Needs.

What tools can I use to help a wide range of sensory kids?

If you need sensory tools for your home or classroom, check out the section Sensory Breaks, Activities, & Tools to Regulate and Calm High-Energy Kids. For example, this section includes tools such as sensory break and mindfulness exercise cards.

Another area of resources that I am digging into today is Seth Perler’s $99 course on Executive Function for Parents & Teachers, a struggle my two oldest sons struggle with for different reasons. Seth offers specific tactics and systems to help kids work on these vital life skills. I learned a great deal from Seth at a conference this past spring. As a result, I can’t wait to dig into more of his material.
