WELCOME to Sensory Parenting
A child’s sensory system affects their ability to learn, play, socialize and function. Maybe a child isn’t able to sit still in class because his shirt tag is bothering him.
Or a child isn’t able to play with other children because his balance is off. Maybe your child isn’t just a picky eater – it could be that his sensory system needs some special guidance and adjusting.
Britt Collins, M.S., OTR and Jackie Olson – an occupational therapist and parent team – have organized and combined parenting information along with sensory integration methods, tips and solutions. We’ve made it easy and fun and will help you avoid a lot of unnecessary battles between you and your child. It’s amazing how quickly our children adapt and the little adjustments that can make our days smoother.
Everything is easier when your childs senses are happy!
