Explore Your Sensory Differences in Action

Learning to recognize when a sensory experience is effecting your mood, concentration, or comfort, is critical to building a sensory life that works for you, not against you. For teens with sensory differences, autism, HSPs, and more.

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will develop a better understanding of their own unique sensory needs, understand how each of their senses impacts their day-to-day experiences, and develop personal strategies for increasing their own comfort in their bodies.
I am an autism and sensory coach, helping autistic teens and their families find and remove hidden barriers to success and build positive life experiences. One of those hidden barriers is often unrecognized sensory needs, which is why I've spent years helping my clients and students figure out their own sensory profiles, and use that information to make their lives better.

I have sensory processing differences myself and am on the autism spectrum. It is my lived experience with these different ways of being in the world that led me to learning more about them and helping others. Prior to coaching professionally, I taught middle and high school, and remain a certified teacher.
Learners will get a set of questions for reflection between each class, highlighting a different sense each week. This is not strictly homework, but learners will get much more out of the class if they read through and think about the questions, or discuss them with family, before we meet.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents or other family members may find it interesting to read through the questionnaires with the learners, but this is not necessary.
