Welcome, I’m Laura
I’m an enneagram 6, so my brain is constantly moving. My OT lenses never turn off and I can’t “un-see” the sensory and other developmental skills that go in to literally every activity. I love taking what I see and breaking it down into simple terms so parents can understand what goes into their child’s behavior and skills.
I want to shift the mindset away debates like “is it sensory or is it behavior” because I believe that sensory responses are a form of behavior. I believe there is a huge misunderstanding of the implications of sensory processing and how it can impact our everyday lives, especially how little minds learn.
I’m your new mom-bestie who gets it.
I mean… I GET IT. I get the struggle. But I also know all the science and nerdy facts about sensory development that can help you make informed decisions about how to raise your sensory sensitive child.

PRAISE FOR The Sensory W.I.S.E. Solutions 10 WEEK PROGRAM
I joined the W.I.S.E. Parents program at the beginning of its launch and it has greatly improved our entire family’s quality of life.
Within a few months I have seen some dramatic changes in my daughter’s ability to handle her sensory issues. We are so grateful to have found Laura and the W.I.S.E. Parents program!
