When “Weird” Is Normal

Greetings friends, I hope you all had a nice 3-day weekend!

Today’s topic is about behaviors in toddlers that make us think twice and ask, “is that normal?” I know that when working with kiddos with any kind of early diagnosis, possible behavioral issues, or even a speech delay where we just don’t know the cause of it; professionals and parents alike tend to be hyper-aware and super observant of those actions, cross-checking it with symptoms of all of the syndromes or disorders we’ve learned about in school, read about, or have seen in other toddlers.  Continue reading “When “Weird” Is Normal”

Luckily I found a super fun and super cheap way to get those kiddos roaring like lions!

An Out-of-This-World Sensory Bin

Greetings earthlings! Today we’re going to be talking about the newest addition to my therapy toolkit: the Outer Space Sensory Bin. Isn’t it stellar?! The inspiration for this piece came from two places: the first was one of my kiddos, who began showing an extreme interest in a particular card from this conversation-starter deck in his family’s entertainment room, that featured the planets and their orbit around the sun; the second was from @simplylearning‘s current theme of the week, sky + space. My feed was filled with all of these neat little projects to do with toddlers, and I decided to make my very own outer space sensory bin to use with my own kiddo!
