Description

Calling all parents! Do you have a child with sensory processing challenges or Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)? Looking for some practical tips and advice from an Occupational Therapist’s expert in sensory development? This podcast is for you! Every week, Laura Petix, (aka The OT Butterfly) will educate you on the impact that sensory processing has on your child’s learning and behavior. She’ll teach you the why behind your child’s behavior, how to identify their sensory profiles, how to support them using sensory strategies and how you can engage with them using the just right challenge. Being a parent of a child with SPD can feel so isolating, but Laura’s here to let you know, you are not alone. Get comfy, press play and imagine yourself hanging out with your new OT mom bestie.

Episode Date
High Threshold: Sensory Seekers vs. Low Registration
799

Sensory seekers tend to under-respond to sensory input, but the way a sensory seeker behaves and acts looks different than a child who has low registration that also under-responds to sensory input. This episode compares and contrasts the 2 profiles.

Sensory Processing Disorder: Sensory Sensitive Profile

Let’s talk about what it can look like when a child has a low sensory threshold. These are known as the sensory sensitive children, sensory avoiders, hypersensitive children. They often go into fight or flight mode. This sensory profile can also overlap with anxiety.

Part 3 of 4: Our Story with SPD
640

I’m kicking off the first season with a 4 part series detailing our journey thus far with SPD. I get real raw and vulnerable sharing a lot of the behind the scenes in our first few years of Liliana’s SPD.

In this episode, I got extremely emotional remembering some of the darkest days in this whole journey. I share a lot of the frustration and other huge emotions that come up when I think about how impactful Liliana’s huge meltdowns were for us and what the turning point was.

Part 4 of 4: Our Story with SPD
576

This is the last part of the 4 part series detailing our journey with SPD. Make sure to go back and listen to parts 1-3 for more details. 

This is the happy ending I’m happy to share with you all. Through all of our hard work, Liliana is thriving in pre-K and has shown huge improvement with her emotional regulation skills. There’s still a ton of work for us to do, but for now, I’m giving myself a pat on the back.
