I’m an entrepreneur, adoptive mom, and special needs mom, wife to my best friend (a.k.a. Sensory Dad or Mr. Sensory around here). We have one amazing daughter (Miss Sensory or Little Miss Sensory). I live out a messy faith, love to run, eat clean, and live naturally. I love to watch the sunset, drink lemonade and live boldly.
I’m a mom on a difficult journey of life with a child that has sensory processing disorder. I’ve been there, looking for answers and not finding anyone to help. I’ve gotten angry. I’ve cried. And through it all I’ve found hope. There is help and you are not alone.
I’ve been that mom who has gotten those looks (yes, you know what I’m talking about). I’ve been the mom that everyone including professionals have told me that I just need to discipline more. More than that…I was the mom who didn’t know what to do or where to turn. I had no idea how to get the help we needed for myself and my child.
What you will find here…
I started blogging about parenting a child with Sensory Processing Disorder because it is what I wished I would have found years ago. Someone or even anyone who had experienced what I was going through! I am sharing my experiences with others who like me are desperate to help their children. One study says that 1 in 20 kids have Sensory Processing Disorder yet most medical professionals, teachers and parents don’t know what it is.
So my hope is that my experiences will raise awareness and help you find the answers that you are looking for, a little encouragement for along the way and solutions to help you.
