There is nothing in this world that we cannot do in the learning process! All things we can do. but sometimes certain conditions can weaken us. Christo, is my student by experiencing conditions that make him disturbed in sensory balance. And finally he dared to take off his swimming board after he never wanted to take it off.
Did you know the creative process engages different parts of the brain than those we use in talking in cognition, so if you struggle to articulate your feelings try drawing them. Art therapy is about expressing emotion without words.
I instantly regretted teaching my cherubs the silly saying: Me- ‘Did you get my postcard?’ Student- ‘No’
Me- ‘Sorry I must have forgotten to stamp it’ (as I stamped my foot as loud as I could on the hard floor) *The remained of the day all I heard was stamping 🙄
Sooo.. I'm suspecting that my cat is an aspie as well😂🙀 There's this really old clock tower right outside my home that plays music every half(!) hour. Inside it luckily ain't that loud, but when you're on the terras... Scares the living shit out of me and my kitteh sometimes😂
By the way I was wondering: would you guys like it if I share a little more about myself? Or should I just stick to pictures? 💕
We've been meaning to do this for a while... Jake is lucky enough to have a pottery-mad grandma with her own studio. Today we've started the process of him making his own plate. .
It will take a while to be fired, she's waiting on a new kiln. But it's a nice sensory and creative activity that's linked with eating in a positive way. Hopefully it will turn out well and he will be proud to use it at the table.
I have seen a few family friendly pottery places dotted around which kids can "make / paint / fire" their own. .
We went to one a while back in Farnham when we lived in Surrey (UK) and we created some great Xmas decorations. .
If you'd like to get your kid to do this activity have a google and see if you can find somewhere local you can book in with! #pickyeater#arfidawareness#foodanxiety#sensoryprocessingdisorder#potteryforall#sensoryplay#fussyeater#pickyeaters#kidsplayideas#surreymummy#somersetmums

I hate when it gets darker earlier. Lily struggles so hard with it. She hates the dark, so when this starts to happen, she will get more Moody and gets very clingy and, sometimes, if she naps and wakes up with it being dark out of her normal time, it's a full on meltdown and takes forever to calm her down. Tonight is one of those nights. No matter what I try, she is thrown off after waking up and it breaks my heart. Any other moms out there have this happen?
A year and a half ago, this little guy took a dive off of our couch onto the hardwood floor. 😥 What we thought was a little accident was actually the catalyst of change in our hearts, our calling and our practice! And for that we are forever grateful!!! 🙏🏻
With that fall came an on a lot of FEAR and UNCERTAINTY as we saw our little man start to slip into a neurological storm that we had witnessed in practice but not with our own children. 💔
Stuttering, motor tics in his eyes, regression in his vocabulary, a huge spike in stress and meltdowns, fatigue and sleeplessness were all things that appeared after his big fall.
In the moments that the pediatric neurologist wanted us to settle for a sudden onset of “tourette syndrome” and a pediatrician for “normal childhood development he would out grow” our innate wisdom as parents said “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.” ✋🏻
The perfectness that he was before that injury was still in there. It just needed to be unlocked. 🔑 We weren’t settling. We were scared. We were worried. We were shaken. BUT, we knew then that we were the best people to pull him out of this. ⛈
We ruled out the scary stuff and then we went to work. We checked his nervous system consistently and frequently and adjusted what we found. We didn’t let up and we saw one big change after another. 🙌🏻
The tic started to lift, his eyes started to clear, his stutter started to calm down, and we saw our little guy with all his previous and glorious swagger start to come back. 🕺🏻
We didn’t know that when we started training with the most elite Pediatric Chiropractors in the world a few months earlier, that God was preparing us to save our own child - to unlock his nervous system and calm the storm that that injury created in him! God has a beautiful way of leading you to your calling and setting a fire in you that nothing could possibly put out! 🌈✨
Fast forward a year and half later and our office is full of children who’s stories mirror Jaxons - plenty of them far far worse and many less.
But, what we know is that any child not living their full potential, not expressing every bit of who they really are (continued in comments...)
Today we officially received an autism diagnosis. Tonight, we mourn. It's like everything has changed, yet nothing has changed.
Logically, I know that Big A will be fine. This isn't the end of the road. It's a road block. We know that it's surmountable. We know we are the best people for this job. And frankly, I know that I'm the most resilient person I've ever met. 💛
Let us have our little grief period. Before, if someone shared this kind of news with me I wouldn't be sure how to react. I'm not sure I would know any better now, honestly. So here is me, telling you, dear reader, my expectations, making it easier for everyone involved:
Don't tell me you're sorry, this isn't cancer or something. Don't inundate me with tips and resources just yet-I'd love some in a week-I need time to process. Don't even dare insinuate that the diet we have fed Big A in some way caused this. Don't Pollyanna me to do death. Don't tell me how awful Western medicine is. If you so much as breathe a word about essential oils I will ruin you. Leave your horror stories about the mental health system to yourself for the time being.
Ask to run to the store for me. Ask to get me drunk (am I joking?) Come over. Don't ask. Just text me and come over. Hug me. Hug Big A. Play hours upon hours of cars with us.
There you have it, a handy-dandy list of expectations and boundaries, meant to positively serve us all. Have a great night. This has been a Big A update.
Crafts mingled in with phone calls (including a discussion with EP about recent runs of VT and if these warrant a medication change), emails, scheduling and planning…
Life’s been doing that beautiful chaos thing.
My Grandma (mom’s mom)’s health has been rapidly declining; after a week plus in the hospital, she’s been released to home hospice. Much love and light to her, Grandpa, Mom, and the rest of the family💜
As for myself, the health juggle continues: alternating PT for hypermobility/EDS, with PT for vestibular retraining/visual motor hypersensitivity; ophthalmology, PET scan, and dentist appointments over the next couple of weeks; waiting for a date for vascular surgery (stenting renal and iliac veins, ablation & sclerotherapy for gonadal veins)... and the challenge to stay one step ahead of the pain and symptoms continues.
But so does the gratitude, the love, and light. Second photo I took last evening as the device report was being sent; the image of the siddur next to the communicator said, “Gd is in your heart, lighting the way thru chaos and dark.”
