We didn’t get too many photos from @thelionking , due to the fact that there was no photography allowed once the show started, and it was way to crowded and chaotic in the hallway. • This is a very special photo we have of Emma and one of her besties, my friend @jodymoffett ’s son Noah. • Emma sat between Noah and his brother Jack. She sat on his lap, held his hand, asked him 101 questions about what was happening (even though she’s seen the movie plenty of times). Noah and Jack shared treats with her, and basically are 99% responsible for the fact that she had an amazing time. • The show was incredible, the group responsible for the sensory aspect of it was insanely amazing, the volunteers were so kind and helpful. We truly could not have asked for a better time. • #thelionking #thelionkingmusical #thelionkingbroadway #whartoncenter #sensoryshowing #spd #sensoryprocessing #sensoryprocessingdisorder #autismawareness

Anabelle and I went to see the new incredible today. We don't often get to do things just me and her anymore which I do feel guilty for all the time. Obviously having another child they are often around and trying to find time that just me and her can do something and have the money is not easy. That being said she loved it. We had a few tutters next to us as anabelle removed her shoes and wanted to lie on the floor. I kept her semi quiet through most of it and calmed her by putting her on my lap but I'm not Gunna keep her from the cinema just because she's autistic. They do autism screenings once a month but we never seem to be able to go. It was lovely to be able to just put all my effort into her for a few hours. #asd #autism #autistic #sunday #mummydaughtertime #oneonone #reallife #daytoday #summer #holidays #incredibles2 #cinema #asdgirls #asdmum #asdparent #girlsonthespectrum #autismspectrum #autismspectrumdisorder #spd #sensory #sensoryprocessing #sensoryprocessingdisorder #tuttut #mummyblogger #mumof2 #love #daughter #mummy #autismawareness

Another framed print given to my son’s teacher! She was so understanding of his sensory needs as an ASD kid and it became a kind of joke that he ALWAYS took his shoes off in class, and then lost them 😂 They has such a bond and I’m thankful for great teachers with big hearts! . . . #framed #print #watercolour #brushlettering #gift #endofterm #teacher #awesome #accomodating #understanding #ASD #autismspectrum #senco #sensoryprocessing #shoes #fun #joke #year2 #colourpop #son #autismparenting #thankful #bigheart #art #appreciation #justanotherday #whereareyourshoes #bespoke

Imagine how difficult it must be for your child when they are distracted, stressed, or upset. This could be from overstimulation, anxiety, or a change in routine, just to name a few examples. Your child may have trouble communicating or expressing their feelings during these times. What if there was a simple and effective way for you to help your child regulate their sensory needs during these times of distress? Did you know that sense of smell can help regulate all of these feelings? Our sense of smell is linked to the emotional center of our brain which helps control behavior, mood, motivation, emotions, and memory. Children can often connect the sense of smell to something they’ve have learned, helping them relax and retain more information. Join me to learn how the simple use of essential oils can help improve your child’s daily experience, as well as your family’s long-term quality of life. Please understand that this event will be for parents only. No childcare will be provided. Thank you! #sensory #funsense #advocate #piecingtogetherthepuzzle
We got a bit of a break from the sun and some welcome shady clouds. - My little sensory human is still having a tough week but lots of nature walks are helping massively. - That and good nutritional food, lots of sleep, core sensory vitamins and minerals plus deep pressure massage is helping his anxiety and emotions.
We need sensory rooms in schools to regulate our kids, give them a calming space and some heavy work to reduce their anxiety....High anxiety leads to behaviour meltdowns.....Back to school sensory room ideas www.teachmehowshop.com.au #teachmehowshop #sensoryprocessing
Image text reads - Example of Task Inertia: 🔹I need to vacuum and I need to shower. 🔹I don't want to shower until after I vacuum because I will get hot & sweaty. 🔹I need to get lunch... but I can't leave the house unless I shower. 🔹But I can't shower until I vacuum. 🔹I'm too hungry to vacuum. 🔹I'll just sit here for a while longer and build myself up to vacuum. 🔹It's going to be loud and I need to move stuff around. 🔹I'm not in the mood for the sensory assault, but I need to vacuum. 🔹I just want to shower. 😟 . . . . . . . #ActuallyAutistic #AutisticWoman #AutisticWomen #Autistic #AutisticMemes #AutismMemes #AutismAcceptance #IAmMyOwnExperience #WomenSupportingWomen #TakeTheMaskOff #Neurodiversity #Neurodiverse #Neurodivergent #WritingMyBlog #WritingMyStory #SensorySensitivities #SensoryOverload #SensoryProcessing #ExecutiveFunctioning #TaskInertia

#tbt the wonderful healing quality of the #carribeansea . This was #puntacana in 2016. First time we had headed that way but certainly won't be the last. Con adores the water, bath, shower, ocean! He's not picky 😂. But on a more serious note I do find that the sensory input of water has a massive impact on Con. When he was a baby bath time calmed him and as hes got older we find the more time he spends in the water the more settled he is. I know #proprioceptive feedback and #vestibular senses are heavy duty reading, but I truly believe that this type of input allows con to self regulate much more capably. The fact he spends 90% of the time "under" the water just makes me think he might be part fish... #asdtravels2018 #MeetTheSENParent #autism #autismawareness #aspie #aspiesofinstagram #instahappy #ocean #healingwater #sea #sensory #sensoryperception #sensoryprocessing #SEN #mumlife #autismmoms #carribean #dreamspalmbeach #puntacana #selfregulate #proprioceptive #vestibular #partfish

It’s been a weekend of sensory experiences for our little loves. Started with our annual tradition of sausage (salami) making and barefoot outdoor play and ended with exploring sounds and textures by splashing and squelching in puddles. Even did a bit of science Peppa Pig style by working out the stomping where there was more dirt than grass in the puddle they could make mud 💗💗💗 #sensoryplaytime #sensoryplay #sensoryplayideas #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensoryprocessing #winterfun #perthmums #perthmummas #happykids #perthteacher #teachersofinstagram #earlychildhood #earlychildhoodeducation #earlychildhooddevelopment
How many of you have gotten this look from kids who won’t go to bed 🙋‍♀️
Every day we address the same #goals but we don’t have to do the same tedious activities. Today we worked on identifying the size and colors. Big and Little pompoms and matching colors in the small (2oz) solo cups. This activity also worked on #finemotor skills. Strengthening our fingers and hands to pick up small objects. Stacking the cups; following 1 step directions. How many goals do you try to address within 1 activity?? Do you already do this but didn’t realize it?? It took me a while to realize that I didn’t have to work on just 1 goal per activity. 🤷🏽‍♀️ #TeacherChronicles #ThinkDifferently #Focus #Challenging #WorkHard #HardWork #SpecialEducation #ABAtherapy #Autism #Support #Teacher #EarlyIntervention #SEIT #SETSS #MakeLearningFUNctional #WeekendAntics #NeverStopLearning #SensoryPlay #SensoryProcessing

We created this smooth, lap perfect Firefly Lap Pad with multiple fidgets for our youngest. At the time she was struggling with fine motor development and it was a great tool to help her build muscle strength. Since then, we have sold many to those of all ages impacted by fine motor challenges, memory retention, and anxiety. We can add fidgets or change them out. The lap pad also comes in dozens of soft flannel colors. There are almost too many options for this versatile product! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fidgetsbuildstrongmuscles #fidgetsareforeveryone #3Bluefireflies #bluefireflies #mompreneur #creativentrepreneur #specialneedsmom #madeinminnesota #duluthsmallbusiness #buylocal #shopsmall #specialneedskids #sensory #sensoryprocessing #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensoryintegration #autism #anxiety #adhd #asd #dementia #fidgets #fidgettoys #sensoryplay #sensorytoys #etsymade #sensoryaccessories #fidgetlappad #sensorylappad #lappads
Sometimes haircuts can be a difficult time for children and their families due to the different kinds of sensory input the experience provides. Here are some sensory tips to make haircuts a more enjoyable experience! Before the appointment… - Call ahead to the barber shop or hair salon to see if there are quieter appointments available to reduce the amount of environmental noise (blow dryers, clippers, buzzing, spray bottles, chatter) your child may hear during their appointment. - Ask if the barber shop or salon has fun, kid-friendly capes for your child to wear during their haircut. - Make a social story or show your child a video of someone going through the process of getting a haircut so they understand what to expect. - If possible, have your child observe a peer getting a haircut to positively model the experience. - Take your child to the barber shop or salon to expose them to environment a few days before they get a haircut. - Have your child engage in heavy work (deep pressure) activities for 10-30 minutes before the appointment. Activities may include pushing/pulling items, jumping, and crashing. Deep pressure on the head and shoulders before the appointment can help the child tolerate the light touch of the hairdresser. Self-compressions to head and shoulders may help, as well as deep pressure with a tolerated brush. During the appointment… - Bring calming snacks or music for your child to use as a sensory tool if they become upset during the appointment. A handheld chewy or sucker may providing a calming effect. - Have your child sit in front of a mirror or use a hand mirror so your child can see what is happening during the haircut. - Bring earplugs or wireless ear buds to the appointment to help reduce the various background noises. - Bring a weighted blanket or toy to be placed on their lap to provide deep pressure during the haircut to help calm your child. - If your child likes to fidget, bring a stress ball or other small object for them to squeeze during the appointment so they do not wiggle around in their seat! Check out our Facebook page for more tips after the haircut! #sensoryprocessing #haircut #childrenshaircuts #OT

So today started the first day of summer holidays and were off to a rocky start. Lots of sensory overload today. Screaming, running, won't wear her shoes.... to top it off were going to my husband's work family bbq today and I can just sense how she's going to be. It always goes one of two ways either she sticks by your side doesn't say a word all the time or she bounces around from person to person not actually talking to them but using them as a climbing frame. They do know she's autistic but this will be the first time they have met her. I find myself not caring what people think but at the same time worried about judgement. I've got called out on my parenting before and that why Anabelle behaves like she does and quite quickly told them no she's autistic to which they were shocked. Well we shall see how this goes. #asd #autism #autismawareness #autistic #autismspectrum #autismspectrumdisorder #asdgirls #girlsonthespectrum #asdmum #asdparent #mumof2 #spd #stimming #bbq #sensoryprocessing #sensory #sensoryprocessingdisorder #struggle #badmorning #summer #holidays #daytoday #reallife #mummyblogger #blog
If you saw my last post, you know that something big is happening in our family today. • We’re doing something that requires a little extra emotional and sensory support for our kids. • We’re seeing The Lion King @thelionking Broadway Musical at The Wharton Center @whartoncenter !!! • It’s a Sensory Showing, which means that hundreds of little details have been set into place to help kids like ours, families like ours, to be able to enjoy this kind of event, that we would not normally be able to attend. You can read more about this in my last post. • Some of the tools we have in our belt, to help our family really enjoy today, are the oils in the Reconnect Kit. • It includes four oils: 1. Reconnect – is mood balancing, it allows the mind to react positively to new situations, and helps with healthy social connections 2. InTouch – is calming, grounding, it unites the body, mind and spirit, and keeps you in touch with reality. 3. SleepIze – relaxes and calms the body and mind, normally for bedtime, but also great for for these kind of social situations. 4. GeneYus – helps with healthy brain function, and aids in focus. • I’m sure we’ll be using some of our other favorites, that we keep on hand at all times, like the Stress Away and Tranquil Roll Ons. And last but not least, we’ll be dousing ourselves in Thieves, because sensory kids often lick things that you’d least expect! • #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensoryprocessing #spd #autism #reconnectkit #reconnectoil #intouchoil #sleepyize #geneyus

The Vestibular System!!!! Your sense of balance! A few weeks ago my #ovia pregnancy app said that baby girl's inner ear was developing, giving her a sense of balance. As a #pediatricot I was very excited about this update. Why? Because they were talking about her #vestibularsystem and your vestibular system is so important in regards to how you process the world around you. This tiny little system situated in your middle and inner ear sends the brain signals letting it know where your head is in relationship to gravity. Just like the past sensory systems that we've discussed, your vestibular system can also be over or under responsive. An over responsive vestibular system might look like a child who easily and constantly gets car sick, is afraid of the swings or other playground equipment (gravitational insecurity), avoids stairs and elevators and is extremely cautious on uneven surfaces. They may display overly cautious behaviors. An underactivate vestibular system may look like a child who is constantly moving, jumping, spinning, taking unnecessary risks. This can often be perceived as a child who is unruly, attention seeking or can't sit still when in reality if their vestibular system was given the input it needed you would see many of these behaviors decrease. In today's world of electronics, sedentary lifestyles, decreased recess time, increased classroom instruction and less time for rough and tumble play, it's not a surprise that we've seen an increase in behaviors related to the functioning of the vestibular system. The vestibular system has a strong relationship to safety, survival, arousal and attention. If you feel like your child is displaying symptoms of an over or under responsive vestibular system which is impacting their daily functioning, an occupational therapist may be able to help.
Lining up play food in a patch of sunlight 😊 So clever. This is one of my favourite photo’s that Nate’s mainstream pre-school took. I’m sad that he’s leaving them but so happy that he’s getting the right provision for him.

I would be lying if I didn’t say there had been ups and downs, and moments of panic of whether I’m failing him.

Behind the scenes peak at life as a sensitive . . . . Yes, my shirt is inside out. I may get a funny looks when the delivery person comes to the door, but I’m so over that! When I’m at home, I allow myself the comfort of wearing seams on the outside. Less discomfort and irritation equals less overstimulation, which equals a much happier me! . When I leave the house, all visible seams go under cover again, but anything covered by clothes is still worn inside out! . #lifeofasensitive #highlysensitiveperson #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensoryoverload #sensoryprocessing #comfort #dowhatfeelsright

#Repost @mummyest2014 (@get_repost ) ・・・ 💔DIFFICULT DAYS 💔 Yesterday was a difficult day. There had been lots of small changes ranging from his nursery moving their room around to free play instead of ‘stations’ at gymnastics. Add to this general sensory input from Asda, being around children, hot days and nights etc and it’s like the game ‘buckaroo’...how much until he ‘bucks’. In our case this is a series of meltdowns. Things he can usually tolerate become big issues and he just can’t regulate himself back to ‘normal temperament’. The whole day was full of tantrums, meltdowns, shutdowns and just a lot of hard work. So I spent the afternoon playing sensory games to try and calm him down. To distract his mind and his body from the ‘fight or flight’ it was stuck in. It worked and J fell fast asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow...waking up this morning in a happy and cheeky mood. We all have bad days. Don’t beat yourself up over them. Just remember that tomorrow is another day x ————————————————- #sensoryprocessing #sensoryplay #autismblog #autismfamily #mummysboy #mummyshot #thisparentlife #babycentre #happylittlebuttons #funseekingkids #backsoflittles #secretlivesoflittles #rawchildhood #mamasafehaven #mummyblog #mummybloggersuk #mumsofinstagram #specialneedsparenting #ukbloggerlife
This girl! I could not be more proud of her! The last day of swim lessons- we do a “free swim party” and today she let me let go of her & she took off (with her floaties of course), but man, this is HUGE for her & ME! She’s my littlest babe & we are nearing a new phase of swimming in pools! I could not be more excited! Do you guys do swim lessons & are they worth the 💰? 🏊🏼‍♀️ 🏊🏼‍♀️ 🏊🏼‍♀️ 🏊🏼‍♀️ 🏊🏼‍♀️ 🏊🏼‍♀️ #dotdotsmile #dds #cap #tank #ballerina #empire #maxi #swing #graphictees #leggings #kickshorts #dotdotsmileheidi #dotdotsmilemerchandiser #dotdotsmileNewMexico #WAHM #workathomemom #hustle #opportunity #joinmyteam #instagood #obsessed #letthembekids #kidsfashion #clickinmoms #boutique #shop #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensoryprocessing #sp #swimming

SO CRAZY PROUD OF THIS GUY! 🙌🏼 Just a few short days ago (⬅️ swipe for video from Tuesday) Joaquin's PT had him attempt walking in the Nimbo Walker using it backwards. Now look at him, he's propelling on his own and even (at the end) standing for a period of time with just holding on and not pushing back. THIS IS HUGE! We can hardly believe how much progress he has made 💙 You can see how he struggled to take steps and needed Ms Kathy to hold his hands in order to move forward just a few days ago and now he's doing it on his own. Just wow! Even with little sis trying to get in his way...luckily no toes were hurt lol 😂. . . Yay Joaquin!!!! #shouttheirworth #JoaquinsLife #progress
💔DIFFICULT DAYS 💔 Yesterday was a difficult day. There had been lots of small changes ranging from his nursery moving their room around to free play instead of ‘stations’ at gymnastics. Add to this general sensory input from Asda, being around children, hot days and nights etc and it’s like the game ‘buckaroo’...how much until he ‘bucks’. In our case this is a series of meltdowns. Things he can usually tolerate become big issues and he just can’t regulate himself back to ‘normal temperament’. The whole day was full of tantrums, meltdowns, shutdowns and just a lot of hard work. So I spent the afternoon playing sensory games to try and calm him down. To distract his mind and his body from the ‘fight or flight’ it was stuck in. It worked and J fell fast asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow...waking up this morning in a happy and cheeky mood. We all have bad days. Don’t beat yourself up over them. Just remember that tomorrow is another day x ————————————————- #sensoryprocessing #sensoryplay #autismblog #autismfamily #mummysboy #mummyshot #thisparentlife #babycentre #happylittlebuttons #funseekingkids #backsoflittles #secretlivesoflittles #rawchildhood #mamasafehaven #mummyblog #mummybloggersuk #mumsofinstagram #specialneedsparenting #ukbloggerlife

♻️ @joaquinslife Here's a little peek into Joaquin's oral strength exercises that he does outside of therapy 🙌🏼. . . In the first video you see him working with the Z Vibe, it's a vibrating tool that comes with all kinds of attachments for different exercises, in the video we are focusing on getting his lips to close and pucker - you'll see at the end he does a great job! . . The next couple of pics he's working with a straw. This is straw 3 (so he's moved up!!!) it's pretty long & very twisty. We set the mouth guard up pretty high so he really has to work on closing his lips around the straw. . . In the last video you'll see something we do pretty often. This is a flexible tube (I don't know the name of it, his SLP gave it to him) and we tie it around anything he's using at the time: car seat, gait trainer, high chair, stroller... You get the point. Joaquin loves biting, the problem is that he wasn't doing it! Before he started therapy he wasn't even chewing his food! So this gives him that input he really craves and helps him learn to chew and bite. It also keeps him from chewing up all his stuffed animals 😂 Another reason we love this tube and the bite tubes he uses is that when he uses them he really starts verbalizing! We hear so many great sounds and when you have a kiddo that's non verbal, there's really nothing better than to hear them verbalizing 😁. . . Making progress every day!!! 🗣

This little boy has struggled in his first year at Primary school. We’ve dealt with horrendous meltdowns resulting in exclusions and ended the last half term doing half days. I worry about him entering Year 1, with no EHCP behind him. Hopefully, he’ll enjoy the more structure and more enclosed classroom as opposed to open plan with 90 kids! . . . #autism #sensoryprocessing #sensoryprocessingdisorder #asd
Anyone seen Fu? One of her favorite comforts is snuggling under a blanket... all the way under. What does your child do to center themselves?
