Manage meltdown with proven sensory strategies!

Introducing the Overcoming Sensory Meltdowns online video course

Is your child or student struggling meltdowns?

Your child or student is having a meltdown… and you’re struggling with how to react.

You aren't sure how to help them or where to start.

You're tired of feeling like you are walking on eggshells around them.

How do you keep your cool, while still being able to cope with the meltdown?

The meltdowns seem to come out of nowhere and you can’t seem to figure out what the triggers are. Where do you start?

You aren’t sure if you are supporting the behavior with the right sensory solutions or if you’re just reinforcing “bad” behavior.

When we talk to parents and educators about their biggest struggles with their child or student, meltdowns are often at the top of the list.

Get solutions, Not temporary fixes.
