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. _____________________________________________

Swipe>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Apa itu Sensory Processing Disorder?
Sensory Processing Disorder atau SPD adalah kondisi dimana otak mengalami kesulitan menerima dan merespon informasi yang masuk melalui indra.
Beberapa anak dengan SPD bisa menjadi terlalu sensitif terhadap lingkungan. Suara yang umum bisa jadi menyakitkan untuk mereka. Sentuhan ringan dari pakaian mereka bisa menimbulkan rasa tidak nyaman.
Masalah pemrosesan sensorik biasanya muncul pada kondisi terkait gangguan perkembangan seperti autism spectrum disorder.

peelandhealchallenge ♥Favorite Color♥ Do you even have to ask?💀 Black is so comforting to me emotionally, and the least offensive to me with my visual sensory processing issues. So my clothes are black, my bedding is black, my makeup is black, I paint my furniture black, and I really wish I could paint my walls black😂 my next favorite colors are purple & grey. •
Random fact: Colors strongly affect my emotions. Maybe it's the SPD, but my brain is wired oddly. In general: •🔴Red makes me upset & angry. •🔵Blue depresses me- except cobalt, that's an exciting color. •💛Yellow frightens me. •💟Pink makes me feel 😝
•🏈Brown makes me want to cry.
•🍊Orange is an anxious color.
•💜Purple is relaxing, very zen.
•💚Green is a weird one... darker shades depress me, lighter tones make me anxious, but there's this perfect mid-range of green shades that thrill me.
•♥Black & Grey can make any of those colors better though, so I use them to buffer the colors that I don't like😁 some colors I actually enjoy once they're paired with black, such as pink & orange ¯\_(ツ)_/ ¯ •

October is Dwarfism Awareness Month!!
We’re teaming up with @fiercely_finley
to celebrate the occasion by putting out an awareness video!
If you or your child has dwarfism & you would like to be a part of it, please send us an email!
My little model showing off a completed custom weighted blanket❤
Last week it was glasses, this week a hearing aide. She was very excited to get her aide this morning and on the ride down. That ended once the audiologist started poking tubes in her ears and putting the aide in. She did really well with the tweaking and probing, but freaked out when the side was put in all the way.
Yes, I totally bribed her with McDonalds if she wore it on the way there. It worked, just barely!
Any ideas on ways to motivate (bribe) her to wear it for short periods of time would be appreciated. I don’t want to ask the teacher to enforce anything, especially if it’s challenging!
H A L P!!
Saif recently went for some learning journey to make pizza. While it's easy for other children, its challenging for a child with sensory processing issues.
All of our senses are processed through our nervous system. That is, information is collected by our senses and sent to the brain where it is processed and sorted. Once this is done, your brain tells you how to respond to that information.
So for people like Saif, their sensory processing is haywire. The sensory information gathered by the nervous system is not correctly interpreted by the brain.
If your brain does not know how to understand the information that goes in, you’d better believe that your response will be messed up.
For some, they turn-inward and become still and quiet. For others, they lash out and have a loud, head-banging, arm-flailing meltdown.
You can watch this really awesome video by Lorimer Moseley to understand more. I promise you it's funny and entertaining.
Welcome to our world.
Yep ... This is so true. 👌🏽... New terms & new class settings for any child is daunting.. But just a bit harder when there are worries & anxieties for our precious little ones #asd #sensoryprocessingdisorder
... Luckily (touch wood) our school help as much as they can.. We have had a few teething problems the past week. And me being me have ruffled feathers only mildly though. Which is good for me. I have been gentle in my complaints shall we say. BUT I see the teachers that care for my children,as my right arm almost. Trust has to be gained and once I allow that.. It’s a much smoother ride for all concerned 👌🏽... Daisy has had her usual unsettlement .. But lately just to cope with her spellings .. (Which weren’t the correct ones.)was telling herself in her head that “She hated herself” over and over until she felt better. 💔.. My heart broke. I honestly loathe grading our children & school ofsted targets. We all get to our happy place eventually and when we are ready .. I never stress my children with this. I gently encourage but never hassle and become a nagging monstrous mum ..It’s counter productive. A child will only absorb what they enjoy to learn 📚. X
Happy Friday! I spend a lot of time talking and thinking about "negative feelings" and how to cope and regulate big emotions like anger, anxiety, vulnerability, and sadness. I want to focus the next few days on HAPPY! So, tell me one thing that made you truly happy today in the comments, I'll go first 😊😚
Hello Instagram - it's been a while. Just like this the angry storm and somber clouds we've been having, life at no.35 has been difficult. Autism knows no bounds. I'm waiting for the day when the fog is lifted and I can see again. What kind of day will it be? How did he do today? What can we improve on? Questions I ask myself everyday. Do all parents analyse their children to this extent? I think its necessary when dealing with a child who has special needs and developmental delays. The older he gets the more he becomes aware that he doesn't have a voice and the more frustrated he becomes that he cannot speak and articulate himself. Imagine for a moment that your voice is taken away? How might you feel? How can you advocate for yourself or ask questions or socialise? What can this frustration lead to?
For my little boy who isn't even four years old yet, its led to him biting on his arm in absolute rage because he cannot functionally say something as simple as "I am tired" or "I am sad". Its something no child at his age should have to deal with. Something no parent should have to witness and yet, it is the reality of so many autistic children.
I want to make one thing really clear. During this difficult week I cannot help but feel angry and saddened at the thought that so many children are berated in public or private for having a voice. Children can be very difficult but far too many times have I witnessed a child being told off in a supermarket or on the street for talking or asking questions or saying "mummy" repetitively. How can someone be angry at that? I dream of the day when my child will say mummy. Cherish those moments with your children. Something that you may think is small and insignificant like your child waving or speaking can be so important to someone else. There are families who yearn for a little bit of normal.

Lots of people will have opinions about your kiddo, many of them negative.😡 Don’t let what they think color your own beliefs about what she can do.
Your undivided love and support are all she needs. 💖
