This is from a @themightysite artcle called "22 Truths People Affected by Sensory Processing Disorder Wish Others Understood." This quote (and the rest of the article) is so accurate it hurts. The Mighty had been a wonderful source of hope and community for me over the last couple years of struggle with mental health. I hope to contribute to the conversation with my own article soon. . . . #spd #sensory #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensing #sensoryprocessing #spdadult #adultshavespdtoo #themighty #themightysite #truth #accurate #relatable #hurts #soreal #sotrue #stress #mindandbody

That moment you get to see your bestie who lives interstate. Gosh I miss her.

Regram from @greeneggstherapy Vestibular input is so important, especially for my kiddos who really crave movement. But what do you do when you don’t have a swing?! A scooter board is an amazing alternative! And they are cheap on amazon! Today we are using it for rotary input, or spinning. See my story for just how much fun we have! _____________________________________________ NOTE: Be very careful with spinning, it needs to be supervised as it can be disorganizing for the brain. Aim for one revolution per second, 10 times each way. Always look for signs such as flushed cheeks, nausea, or headache. I ALWAYS follow vestibular input with proprioceptive input (or heavy work - push, pull, lift, climb, jump) as it is typically organizing. _____________________________________________ #pedsot #pediot #pediatrics #occupationaltherapy #sensoryprocessing #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensory #vestibularinput #haywardOT

Micah was up at 6am again this morning. I had grand plans on getting up and getting a start on the day.... I was so tired and its a dizzle day so I really didnt want to get up. Dan got up so I could have the sleep in. I forgot to take photos of today's small world last night when I created it. Micah found it first thing surprisingly it still looks quite pretty.
. 🍁 FOLLOWING 2 STEP INSTRUCTIONS 🍂 . This photo was taken during our outing to Scotney Castle yesterday. And the place was as beautiful as always, but it was something else that made yesterday a bit extra special... . Now, considering that our Penguin has reached the ripe old age of 11 (time flies, huh?!), this will probably sound strange to some of you, but what made my day yesterday was that Penguin - on two occasions - followed two step instructions!🎉 . For the ’average’ child, that’s a milestone usually met around 2-3 years of age. But for our boy, processing verbal information is no easy thing. Nor is holding onto that information and staying focused on completing a task. . For many with sensory processing differences, like Penguin, the brain is more intensively bombarded by sensory input compared to most of us. To focus on what a person is saying, when there are so many other sounds going on (not to mention visual stimuli, tactile input, smells etc.), can be almost impossible. So, when Penguin listens and takes on board instructions, even ’only’ of the one step variety, it’s a great thing. And yesterday, he did 2 step instructions, TWICE 🙌 . In the morning, he’d taken something out of the fridge and left the door open, and I asked him to ”put it back and close the door” (usually I don’t even give instructions in 2 steps, but I was a bit tired and unfocused myself). And he did it!😳 So, in the play area at Scotney, I said ”pick the ball up and put it in the hole”, and yay, he did that too! 👏😃 . Now, sometimes we see a ’skill’ once or twice and then never again, but he’s done it again today. So I’m going to try giving him 2 step instructions more often, to give him opportunities to practise and perhaps master this✨ . #ausomekid #autism #autistic #autumncolours #beautifulbritain #celebratetogether #castlesofengland #countrykidsfun #developmentaldelay #differentlyabled #everylittlestep #explorerkids #gloriousgardens #homeducation #homeschooled #ig_england #learningtogether #milestones #outdoorsandhappy #pblogger #scotneycastle #senblog #sendbloggers #sensoryprocessing #snaphappybritmums #storiesaboutautism #twostepinstructions #wondersofwater

This book changed my life! A few months ago, I learned I that I have Sensory Processing Disorder. I've had it all my life, but never knew it. I did a lot of weird things as I was growing up to compensate for the sensory stimuli I was getting too much of as well as the stimuli I needed more of. It's like my whole life makes sense now! And it's such a relief! This book is a wonderful read for people who don't know much about SPD, which was me. Rachel S. Schneider is incredible! . . . . #spd #sensoryprocessingdisorder #spdadult #sensory #bookrecommendations #neurologicaldisorder #makingsense #sensoryprocessing #sensorylearning #adultshavespdtoo

We are lucky enough to live in a large city with lots of support services, while having easy access to woodlands and all the benefits to his therapy that nature brings. Today, while exploring the forest, we touched all different kinds of bark, walked uphill and back down, sorted rocks, saw some deer, sang Itsy Bitsy spider when we saw a not-so-itsy-bitsy spider😲, labeled everything, pointed, watched the trees sway in the wind, sang Teddy Bear Picnic, etc. What probably looked like a mom and son on a walk was actually two hours of sensory exploration, with physical, occupational and speech therapy in action. It's amazing that just a handful of months ago, this little guy was barely taking unassisted steps. The work he has done with his Early Intervention therapists has been hard, but this is progress! #earlyintervention #specialneeds #developmentaldelay #parenting #momlife #belikebuddy #sensoryprocessing #nature

Being able to regulate our emotions and responses is a skill that needs to be taught and modeled by the adults around your child! Jumping to the reason stage with a young child just does work, they need to feel your regulating and calming influence in your tone, body language and actions, then you can move on to speaking to them about how they are feeling while still doing some co-regulation before being able to use words and depend on their bodies to know what to do 👌🏼#empoweroccupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapy #emotionalregulation #sensoryprocessing #family #love #parenting #aberdeen

SPD? ⁉️⁉️⁉️ What exactly is Sensory Processing Disorder? ⁉️⁉️⁉️ Sensory processing refers to the way the nervous system receives messages from the senses and turns them into responses. For those with Sensory Processing Disorder, sensory information goes into the brain but does not get organized into appropriate responses. Those with SPD perceive and/or respond to sensory information differently than most other people. Unlike people who have impaired sight or hearing, those with Sensory Processing Disorder do detect the sensory information; however, the sensory information gets “mixed up” in their brain and therefore the responses are inappropriate in the context in which they find themselves. #specialneedsparents #embraceyourdifferences #everyoneisdifferent #disabilityawareness #shiningalight #differentandable #sensory #sensoryprocessing #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensoryoverload
Car Wash Sensory Play 💦☁️🚗 Weekend play inspiration . Here’s how to play: . You and your kiddos line-up all the toy cars in the household, spray them all over with shaving cream, fill up a sensory bin with water and a little blue dye for some extra pzazz and give them some old toothbrushes to help “scrub the cars squeaky clean”. They brush them off with their toothbrush and them dip then in the “soapy” water to get them rinsed off before lining them up to dry. . There are three primary objectives in this fun outdoor game: . To squeeze in some messy tactile sensory play: Messy tactile input is important for so many reasons! To stimulate the tactile senses in a fun way, to decrease or eliminate any hypersensitivity to touch or textures which can impact a whole number of things (the most important being acceptance of new food textures), to increase awareness of the hands and body and to let kids realize its OKAY to get their hands messy. If your little has an absolute meltdown when their hands get messy, this might be a good activity to try with them. Having a barrier between the hands and the shaving cream (the toothbrushes) help for those who are hesitant to touch the messy texture. . To promote imaginative and parallel play (side by side play) with siblings . To get kids outside! . The greatest part is you probably have ALL of the items you need to play this game laying around somewhere in your house. (cars, shaving cream, a bin, toothbrushes, water + food coloring) . Isn’t it cool that its the simplest things in life that keep kids busy and their brains working? . Check out the full play deets on the blog under toddler activities ☝️ .

BEACH SMALL WORLD PLAY 🐚 🐢 🐙
Well this happened. 😭😍 . I always thought Ollie would want to homeschool forever (he is my little introvert) and then he saw Zola going off to school everyday and kept begging to let him go too. . We found the perfect place for him and he LOVES it! They focus a lot on sensory integration and brain organization and it couldn’t be more perfect for our little guy. It’s just two days a week and after how much he loved it today, he is going to be real upset tomorrow when he realizes he doesn’t have school. 😬 . They have personal experience with international adoption, the impact of childhood trauma on development, and sensory processing. I didn’t have to try and explain what all that means and that was such a gift. . My emotions are ping ponging back and forth between how in the world is he old enough for this already and what is it even like to have both my kids at school during the day. I feel like I could take on the world. Or maybe I’ll just start with a nap. 🤷🏼‍♀️ . I couldn’t resist that $6 sweatshirt from @Target for his first day of school. I just can’t handle it. 😍😭

So many posts in one day! I had to post this one. I love getting his little hands in the shot rushing to play. Because I like to have a small world set up on his table for him to come and go I thought Id swap the play dough out. Dont want it to dry out so just green rice for the ground. I added some blue pompoms for water. Micah cant be trusted inside with water yet haha. It makes my heart happy setting up these little activities.
When this girl changes her clothes at the end of the day, the dresses are on the floor (still working on that). But when she gets dressed in the morning (which she does by herself- yes, we are in that phase), she will have on her dress for the day. Some days it’s the same one for 3 days in a row, other days it’s 3 dresses in one day. Either way- I’m okay with that. #momoftheyear • • • • • • • • #dotdotsmile #dds #cap #tank #ballerina #empire #maxi #swing #graphictees #leggings #kickshorts #dotdotsmileheidi #dotdotsmilemerchandiser #dotdotsmileNewMexico #WAHM #hustle #opportunity #joinmyteam #instagood #obsessed #letthembekids #kidsfashion #clickinmoms #boutique #shop #sensoryprocessing #ohheymama #thestruggleisreal #twirl

Halloween is definitely a fun holiday, but sometimes it can be stressful, too. Monsters come alive, goblins run amuck, there's fake blood and strange costumes - Lots of new experiences and potentially over-stimulating situations that can cause stress/anxiety/sensory overload. . Having a "chewie" at hand is always helpful for anyone who needs to chew, but it's especially helpful during times of stress/change, like Halloween. . Chewies don't have to be a part of the costume (they can still be worn even if they don't specifically match the costume), but here are some cool ideas in case you do want them to match: . ARK's DIAMOND CHEW NECKLACE - Be a princess, queen, or Audrey Hepburn wearing a diamond necklace . ARK's BASKETBALL CHEW NECKLACE - Be a basketball player . ARK's CHEWABLE BANGLES - Wear several bracelets on each arm and be a hippie or fortune teller . ARK's SMILEY FACE CHEW NECKLACE - Be a flower-power child or an emoji character . ARK's KRYPTO-BITE CHEW NECKLACE - Be a sorceress, wizard, or genie. You can also wear one of the blue or translucent ones and be Elsa wearing an ice crystal . ARK's DINO-BITE / DINO-TRACKS CHEW NECKLACE - Be a paleontologist or a dinosaur . ARK's CHEW TAGS CHEW NECKLACE - Be a soldier, air force pilot, or coast guard . ARK's ARROWHEAD CHEW NECKLACE - Be an archaeologist . ARK's SABER TOOTH CHEW NECKLACE - Wear a safari/explorer costume, or be a caveman, shark, or marine biologist . ARK's NINJA STAR ARK's - Be a ninja! . . . . . #sensory #sensoryprocessing #sensoryprocessingdisorder #needtochew #sensoryplay #oralmotor #madeintheusa #madeinsc #madeinamerica #chewelry #chewlery #chewnecklace #chewablejewelry #sensorychew #fidget #fidgeting #nailbiting #anxiety #adhd #nervous #stimming #specialeducation #arktherapeutic #halloween #costumeideas #sensorydietathome #halloweentips #slpeeps #otpeeps

Love this photo of @melaniecaouette an Occupational Therapist in Montreal using the smaller visuals/game deck from the C.A.L.M.M Yoga Toolkit as a visual sequence for this young boy with autism! Melanie completed the Level 1 training in Montreal Canada. Here’s what she has to say about the Toolkit! Only on sale 20% off until the end of this month! Follow profile link and go to Shop page on website. 🙏🏻✨ “I bought the CALMM toolkit in Jan.2017 and I use it every day in my occupational therapy and yoga teaching work. It is the best visual props I have seen that are easily understandable and meaningful for both neurodiverse and neurotypical children. I use it with kids aged from 3 to 17 years old, I do a lot of games with them (memory games, 'Go fish", etc) and the cards are sturdy and they are still like new after almost 2 years of being used every day. I highly recommend the toolkit to yoga teachers, therapists, school teachers and educators.”✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . #asanasforautismandspecialneeds #yogaforall #ot #occupationaltherapy #yoga #kidsyoga #yogateacher #cobrapose #autism #accessibleyoga #inclusiveyoga #autismawareness #yogaeveryday #yogapose #yogateacher #calmmyogatoolkit #calmmkids #sensoryprocessing #sensoryyoga #spd #yogacards #yogatherapy #connection #inclusion #educator #schoolteacher #therapist #yogainschools #adaptedpe #speechtherapy #speechpathology

Not a super interesting tuff tray today but fun none the less. It is far to hot to care about anything right now. It would be so easy to put the TV and air con on and vege out... but Micah wants to be outside so tuff tray with water and bubbles it is. Unfortunately the only real shade we get close to the house (and a tap) is on the patio.
WHERE'S THE BEEF? Who remember's that comercial? 😆 But actually, our dinner tonight was made with ground chicken. I chose the dark meat from @wholefoods - way more flavor! 😋 Plus, don't be shy to ask the butcher to create the burger patties for you. I did, which made my meal prep time so much easier. ...What's on your meal plate? 🍽

Waking up from a journey ... We took on our magic carpets to a Jungle in Africa. We saw tigers, and all kinds of different birds while we floated through !! Then it started to rain 🌧 but it was refreshing, and we lifted our hands to the sky to catch the raindrops and we ended the trip with a beautiful rainbow that 🌈 came right out from our hearts ♥️ 🤗 Purpose of this magic carpet ride ❔⁉️ * * Sooooo much is addressed during this fun activity !! ↠ Having the kids close their eyes and occluding their vision is working on their auditory processing skills. Their ability or inability , to listen and tune out any other distractions impacts a child’s ability to attend to their teachers and follow instructions. * * ↠ Dimmed lights, closed 👀, and heavy blankets ?? Eliminating visual input and INCREASING proprioceptive input (deep pressure) has a calming effect on the nervous system. This allows the kids to calm down and attend to the visual imagery while encouraging abstract thinking !!! * * ↠ Rule ➳ Stay on your magic carpet to get a point towards your reward. IMPULSE CONTROL !!! AND teaches the kids perseverance for gratification . * * 4-8 years old class starts at 4PM 9-12 years old class starts at 5:15PM * * First class | 2-4-1 Promo . So grab your kid and bring a sibling or friend, OR simply use for your next visit. For booking visit : www.zenmindspace.com and reserve your mat. Space is limited !!! See you tomorrow friends 🧘🏽‍♀️🧘🏽‍♂️🌱
Children under 5 are learning to recognise and to regulate their feelings but this takes time and practice. If children feel restricted, restless, tired or overwhelmed, it will often lead to undesirable behaviours such as hitting out. Our response is often to sit the child down on a time-out or to contain the behaviour somehow but this is usually the opposite of what they need. Brain breaks help children to gradually regulate and release stress hormones. For a key person, this can be a a really useful way to minimise 'break out' behaviours and they are fun to use too. . . . . . . . . . #brainbreaks #specialneeds #autism #adhd #atypical #hyperactivechild #children #childdevelopment #eyfs #reggio #sensoryprocessing #kids #parentinghacks #parentingtips #receptionteachers #send #sensorybreak #naughty #earlyeducation #inclusion

I was packing up my "tools" for the work week & couldn't help but feel thankful. I get to incorporate EVERYTHING I love into my treatments. Art/music/fitness... it's the perfect fit for me. This month is OT MONTH!! When I decided to apply for the program... it was a hectic time in life BUT 1 of the best & most pivotal decisions I ever made. I adore working with children that have special needs...they make my days so interesting/ fullfilling... & my ♡ so FULL. I ♡ my job!! #otmonth #happyotmonth #occupationaltherapy #ilovemyjob #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #musictherapy #arttherapy #fitnesstherapy #sensoryprocessingdisorder #ot #autismspeaks #progress #sensoryprocessing #occupationaltherapists #aota
