Along the spectrum journey, there are three little words we teachers and parents hear a lot: Sensory Processing Disorder. Or Sensory Integration Disorder. Sometimes, this “sensory” junk feels seriously hokey. Like an overreaction of “helicopter mom-unnecessary stuff” that is either a total invalidation of other issues (“oh, there’s nothing more than some sensory issues to manage”) or some kind of fix-it-all panacea.
Not every person with sensory processing challenges is on the spectrum – but every person on the spectrum does have sensory processing difficulties. So what to do about it?
Sorry folks, your “normal” is getting in the way.
But Jennifer’s….a bit more unique, like all of our Aspies. So, how about we go with:
- a nice clear list of what “signals” to look for before stress levels rise?
- Plus, let’s have links to our absolute favorite fidgets
- rope ladders
- chewable pendants
- legitimately cool-looking Chillax jewelry
- light-up pogo sticks
- weighted blankets
- noise-cancelling headphones….and a WHOLE lot more?
But MOST of all….this download is an instruction manual on how to empower Aspies of ANY age to identify, articulate, and independently access whatever they need to feel calm and function fantastically. The way we were all meant to do.
