For the child with sensory needs, daily tasks can be HUGELY overwhelming...leading to meltdowns, overstimuation, or breakdowns. We need a plan that guides and adjusts to meet each child's specific needs in meaningful and authentic ways.

Need a strategy guide to create sensory diets for a lifestyle of sensory success!

The Sensory Lifestyle Handbook is a resource by The OT Toolbox. Written by Colleen Beck, OTR/L, you will find tools and strategies to help kids thrive.

A Sensory Diet can help SO many kids:

  • The student who struggles to pay attention in school...
  • The child who jumps, wiggles, crashes, and moves, all day long...
  • The preschooler chews on his clothing and toys CONSTANTLY...
  • The child who struggles with emotions and socialization...
  • The young child who lacks confidence because she is fearful and uneasy with movements...
  • The little one who ONLY eats specific foods and refuses to try anything new...
  • The child who will only wear specific clothing, textures, or types of clothing...
  • The child struggles with sleep issues on a nightly basis...

Taking the specific and individualized activities that make up a Sensory Diet and transitioning them into a lifestyle of sensory modifications, strategies, and techniques is a Sensory Lifestyle!

A Sensory Lifestyle creates confidence. It boosts self-esteem in our kids who struggle with so many sensory needs. A Sensory Lifestyle is a blueprint for improving attention and focus that kids NEED to succeed in school, at home, and in the community. 

 A Sensory Lifestyle is evidence-driven. It uses specific sensory strategies that are woven into a child's day, ensuring carryover. It works because it's developed based on a child's needs, interests, strengths, and daily tasks. 

A Sensory Lifestyle takes the chaos out of daily activities. Parents will tackle the feelings overwhelm and chaos using motivating and authentic sensory activities of a Sensory Lifestyle... 

Whether you are a parent or teacher, this handbook will help you better understand "sensory" and use the recommendations to address sensory needs in a whole new way. 

Therapists will find valuable resources to explain sensory processing and transition "what we know" about a child into action plans guided by evidence-based strategies, resources, and guidelines.

Use sensory accommodations, sensory strategies, and sensory routines integrated right into the various tasks within a child's day in order to navigate kids toward a "just right" state, with better attention, focus, and confidence...using activities based on the child's strengths, needs, and interests. 

This book is for therapists, parents, teachers, or anyone who works with kids with sensory needs.
