Sensory Processing Awareness Challenge

October is full of reasons to celebrate around here! As many of you know, our new project, Project Sensory, is launching this month and we couldn’t be more excited. The timing couldn’t be more perfect, as this month is also Sensory Processing Awareness month. If you are a regular here, you know just how much our family struggles with sensory processing and the affects it has our family. That is why I thought it would be really fun to launch our new site and this month with a month-long challenge!

Celebrate Sensory Awareness

Are you ready to take the Sensory Processing Awareness challenge?

Come on, it will be really fun, I promise!

To celebrate Sensory Processing Awareness Month, we are hosting a social media photo challenge. We are really excited about this challenge and hope you will join in.

At Project Sensory, we believe that all children deserve the right tools to support their sensory systems. Every child has 7 (actually 8) sensory systems, therefore requiring organization and support in each of these systems.

Our goal is to make Project Sensory a place where parents, educators, and caregivers can come to find information, resources and tools to help support their child’s sensory systems.

Often times “sensory needs” are only associated with a child that has been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ADHD. Unfortunately, unless you know a child who truly stuggles with more than one sensory system, many have never even heard of the extensive research and resources available to help their child with every day struggles.

It is our goal to change that! We believe that ALL children have sensory needs and we can help grow a community that supports these children in their every day lives.

As a way to get everyone thinking about the Sensory Needs of All Children, we are hosting a social media challenge. To make it even more fun, we are giving away one of our Sensory Fix™ Toolkits at the end of the month! (valid in US only).

100 Sensory Activities for Home or School

Here’s How the Sensory Awareness Challenge Works:

1. Download the 100 Sensory Activities Printable

2. Hang it up at home or school so you are reminded every day to use the chart

3. Try to include at least one sensory activity in your day every day in October.

4. Take a picture of you and/or your child doing a sensory activity

5. Share your picture on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram

6. Add this message to your photo:

“Got my #sensoryfix thanks to @projectsensory! Have you gotten yours today?”

7. Finally, Tag a friend to take the challenge with you

*Each entry will be entered in one drawing for a Sensory Fix™ Toolkit. Contest is open from October 1-October 31. Winners will be randomly selected and must live within the US. GOOD LUCK

We can’t wait to see how you support your child’s sensory needs this month and beyond! Be sure to check out all the other exciting things happening this month as well!

More Ways to Celebrate Sensory Awareness Month

Decoding Kid Behaviors

Decoding Everyday Kid Behaviors

A 5 Week Series Covering Over 40 Behaviors (all rooted in Sensory Needs)

I am extremely excited to announce our series on Everyday Kid Behaviors and the sensory behind the behavior. Over the course of 5 weeks we will share stories, resource, and tools to support your child’s sensory needs. I encourage you to take a look at the list below and see if you see any familiar behaviors in a child you know.

Each day, the links will go live in the list below, and I will be sharing these posts on Pinterest, Facebook and on our new page, Project Sensory.

I hope you follow along during this exciting and informative series because parenting can be hard. Lets face it, the more we understand our children’s behaviors the more we are able to connect with them. Which, of course, is our ultimate goal.

Introducing Sensory Fix

Introduce Sensory Fix™ Toolkits 

Although, our first “Sensory Backpack” was born out of necessity when our oldest son was having difficulties in the public school setting due to sensory processing disorder, we have used this backpack on a daily basis with all of the children in our family.

They are great for car trips, outings, and even transitions to new schools.

In fact, we find that his siblings, friends and relatives enjoy using the toolkit just as much as him and it has become our mission to help ALL CHILDREN get the tools they need to be successful.

Be sure to hop over to Project Sensory™ for your chance to win your kit today. While you are there, dig around a bit and you will find 15 giveaways! Super FUN!

    I am SO excited for the launch of Project Sensory! I pinned your original post for a sensory backpack before there was any talk of Project Sensory, and I was THRILLED when I found out you were going to be putting together toolkits and resources available to parents. We are still very new on our sensory journey, and I would be thrilled to use a toolkit with my almost 5 year old son. 🙂

    What a neat site! Best wishes on Project Sensory …. I would love to win a kit for my son. He has Down syndrome and loves movement!!!!

      Thank you so much!

  3. Bryna

    thank you for all these resources!

    I would use this kit with my 5yr old and infant. I think helping children use their sense to identify objects, etc is a great learning experience

  5. Rosemarie Joseph

    One of the teachers at work directed me to this site and I am looking forward to learning a lot more about Sensory Processing.
    Thank you for your hard work and dedication to this very important topic. Many parents and children will benefit by your knowledge.

      Thank you! Hopefully you find the materials useful as well!

    Our family struggles with figuring out what our son needs are. We along with our doctors and therapists are working hard but still are puzzled on what may be the “missing link” for our son. I am interested in a reliable resources to find out more information about sensory. Also figuring out where/what kind of doctors we need on our team to best help our son and his needs. My husband and I are looking for a sensory support group and need help to find one in our hometown area and/or online. Please help us with any information/suggestions/tips/etc….

    What a well thought out pack. I had created shoebox for a child who had issues with sensory overload. But, this goes beyond what I even had available at the time. Great!

  8. Tarah

    After reading you post I realizes that one of my kids has many sensory needs and would greatly benefit from much of this information. She is almost 5 and I homeschool her older sister and do a bit with her but I’m so glad I came across this information this early. It will be a huge blessing to both of us, as well as the rest of our family!

  9. Hey Dayna,
    Our son is almost 9 and we go through many different phases of intervention. We recently had a major hic-up at school and I relaised that I had to get back in there and educate teachers and parents on the fundamentals of SPD. (rather appropriate that it is National Sensory Awareness Month!) We developed an emotional volcano that is appropriate for all the children in his class and it works wonders. Your list of sensory activities is perfect for a Brain Activity. I should actually rephrase it to a ‘Body Brain’ activity.
    I started this site a long time ago to keep track of all the stuff we’d done with our son.
    I love what you have created here and have already recommended your site to many of my friends & practitioners. The tools are fabulous – so hats off to you for your dedication and passion to share.
    Hugs Jac
