Do you remember when you first started using Pinterest? Really using it on a daily basis?
Discovering Pinterest literally changed my life. All of a sudden I was:
- A cook with tons of healthy and fresh recipes
- A DIY ninja who could change my own electric outlets (Yes, I did that!)
- A budget-diva who could wear thirty different outfits using only ten pieces of clothing that were already in my closet
Not to mention the TONS of awesome OT activities and hacks I discovered, pinned, and started to use every day as an OT.
A resource like that is worth a million bucks.
I FOUND ANOTHER ONE… A Sensory Processing Resource.
Yep, it’s true. As good as Pinterest. This will make you a more understanding parent. And a more empathetic therapist. And an adult who generally has awesome ways of helping their kids with Sensory Processing issues. Which, BTW, is also worth a million bucks.
I’d like to introduce you to Sensory Processing 101 – the must-have Sensory Processing Resource.
Here’s why this book is a game changer for parents, teachers, and therapists.
10 REASONS this book is a MUST-HAVE SENSORY PROCESSING RESOURCE
- Cheat sheets for each sensory system. They list avoiding or seeking behaviors and quick activities to try
- A comprehensive, easy to understand breakdown of each sensory system – from a parent’s point of view AND a therapist’s perspective
- Common myths about sensory processing- busted!
- Index by behavior – find exactly what you are looking for!
- Reproducible, easy-to-read sensory checklists, teacher handouts, quick reference guides and supply lists for each system
- “Red flag behaviors” for each system
- Recipes for simple and fun non-food sensory play
- Recipes for healthy smoothies- Did you know that sucking is an organizing sensory activity that helps increase attention?
- Signs that your child’s behavior is more than “just a phase”
- Tips for moving beyond “just a phase” to get the help you need
No offense intended to the Pin-aholics out there- I’m with you, believe me.
But a sensory resource like this is just as powerful.
It should be on every therapist’s bookshelf.
And it’s a game-changer for parents, too!
My personal favorite features are the reproducible “cheat sheets” with quick and easy suggestions for sensory activities. It’s so helpful to hand a teacher a page of suggestions that they can immediately implement in the classroom.
It makes ME a go-to resource for teachers, which is one my personal goals.
Sensory recipes help weak fine motor skills, picky eaters, and more!
