When you first find out that your child has sensory processing disorder, it can be overwhelming and confusing.
My first reaction was to devour any and all information I could find on the subject. After a while, terms like proprioception and self-regulation started to roll off my tongue and become a part of my everyday life.
It’s one thing to learn the ins and outs of SPD and how it effects your child, it’s quite another to pass that information on to the babysitter or the new Sunday School teacher in less than sixty seconds.
I’ve found myself worried sick over how unprepared I left the care givers of my son. There’s so much I want to say and so little time!
I want them to know how to help my child thrive and feel comfortable in his surroundings. I want him to not just behave, but enjoy himself and learn!
Many of my readers have expressed this same concern so I decided to create a little product to help all of us sensory parents.
This simple tri-fold brochure gives a quick overview of what SPD is and how everyone has sensory needs. The inside spread covers specific sensory systems like tactile and vestibular senses. Each sense is defined and examples are given of a seeker or avoider in that area.
Then there’s a big red box where YOU as the parent get to fill in your child’s specific needs. So in my son’s case… he’s a proprioceptive seeker and a vestibular avoider.
The back page is where the rubber meets the road. There’s plenty of space to explain the things your child avoids and the things they seek, as well as the best coping strategies FOR THEM!
It’s super personal and super practical!
The PDF file is yours to download for only $7 . Print it out on your home printer as many times as you’d like for your own personal use, whenever the occasion arises! (Scroll Down further for information on a business license.)

My son had his first karate lesson today and I was so much more calm knowing his instructor had read the brochure, knew the basics of SPD, and knew my son’s individual needs! AWESOME!
