The Sensory W.I.S.E. Solutions Podcast

Sendory wise solutions podcast

Do you have a child with sensory processing challenges or Sensory Processing Disorder?
Looking for some practical tips and advice from an Occupational Therapist’s expert in sensory development? This podcast is for you! Every week, Laura Petix, (aka The OT Butterfly) will educate you on the impact that sensory processing has on your child’s learning and behavior. She’ll teach you the why behind your child’s behavior, how to identify their sensory profiles, how to support them using sensory strategies and how you can engage with them using the just right challenge. Being a parent of a child with SPD can feel so isolating, but Laura’s here to let you know, you are not alone. Get comfy, press play and imagine yourself hanging out with your new OT mom bestie.


Like speaking to a friend who “GETS IT”

I have a 2 year old daughter with sensory processing challenges (specifically tactile) that have made feeding an overwhelming challenge since birth. Listening to Laura feels like having the chance to talk to someone who literally understands what you have been through. I love that the episodes are short and full of tips and helpful information.
