I am an occupational therapist who specializes in sensory processing issues. In addition to being an occupational therapist, I am also the mother of twin boys both of which have sensory issues. I have a weekly internet radio show where I discuss sensory issues, and also have a website.
The reason that I started my radio show as well as my website was to take the mystery out of sensory issues and give parents information that they can actually use in their daily lives to help their children.
I so often see information presented that is too technical for actual use by the ones who need it…the parents. I know what it is like to have a child that will not take a bath, is up all night, or finds it painful to be hugged, and want to help parents going through this by giving them the tools that will actually help them get through it.
