Looking for Answers and a Supportive Community?

Your child's struggles with meltdowns, fidgeting, focus, new textures, tastes, and smells, fiddly fine tasks, balancing games, settling to sleep or brushing their teeth... could be due to the way their brain handles information from their senses. Not your parenting. Not your child's lack of effort. Just the way their brain and nervous system work together.

That our unique sensory profile affects everything we do isn't widely understood. But once you look at your child's behaviour and preferences from a sensory point of view - well, it will transform your family life.

Sensory Help Now is a supportive online community of parents and carers with sensory integration qualified therapists on hand to answer your queries and concerns. We've also got a suite of short videos teaching you tips and activities (all based on research) that will help you better support your child's sensory needs at home. Join us today!

Very in-depth, yet simple enough to understand short course on sensory processing and integration in children. It was heartbreaking but relieved to learn that some of the behaviors, we get upset with our students are actually difficulties they have and are only trying to self-regulate. Knowledge is indeed power. Thank for the home- tips/strategies and for putting this short course together.

I must confessed I skipped some parts because I was looking for quick advice on how to understand better my child's sensory integration issues. I will come back at a later stage. The section with the three exercises to make neurotypical people understand what difficulties people with dyspraxia face on their daily life alone is worth the course. I am going to propose it to my husband, my family and my child's school teachers. Illuminating!
