Learning Conversational Skills with Color My Conversation {Northern Speech Services Review}

Being a homeschool mom with special needs children I often try to weave therapy into our homeschool. I stay aware of their sensory needs and try to work on other areas like fine and gross motor skills and speech. I am definitely not a Speech-Language Pathologist, though, so I feel like although what I’m doing […]

2014 Holiday Gift Guide Sponsor Spotlight – Chewigem

In September my daughter and I had the chance to review some beautiful stylish sensory chewelry from Chewigem. We both have Sensory Processing Disorder and tend to chew on things for oral input.

Faces of Sensory Processing Disorder

As you know, our younger 2 children have Sensory Processing Disorder, but the picture in the middle might surprise you. Yes, that’s me. After almost 3 years of “maybe this,” “maybe that,” and a definite misdiagnosis everything has finally come together. I have Sensory Processing Disorder. Knowing what I know about it and all I’ve […]

A new symptom?

Our toddler has started something new. Because of his array of different concerns I don’t know if this is, again, an issue that is related to other concerns or something totally different. It’s always a guessing game with him! He has come a long way in his speech therapy, but he still has a delay […]

Sensory Concerns – Our Toddler

I’ve been doing a few giveaways and reviews lately, and not much else! I want to keep my site “well-rounded!” 🙂 One of the things I said I would incorporate with the new year was being more personal/personable.
