Therapeutic levels of omega-3's may help with sensory processing



This article discusses a study which showed that mice with proper levels of Omega-3 essential fatty acids were better able to handle sensory overload.  I have found that my ability to handle stress improved when I started taking Omega-3's.  This article just reinforces the fact that this nutrient is SOOOOOOOOOO important to our kids - especially those with special needs.  I think it is also important to note that a change in DIET effected how animals related to STRESS.  Interesting!!!  Click on the link for the full article.

Video about sensory processing.

This is a great video to explain sensory processing.  I think it would even be good to show to children to help explain why they feel the way they do.

A great interview with Ms. Grandin.

I have had the privilege to see Ms. Grandin speak on a few occasions. She has some really great, practical advice for parents on how to help their child with autism.  This short interview is a condensed version of her speeches.

Mystery of Sleep

Here is a great article by Dr. Mercola.  We are learning every day how important sleep is to all the functions of our body.  I know I can't function when I don't get good quality sleep.

Staten Island Chuck Let Me Down!!!

Staten Island Chuck let me down.  



Well, I guess we can’t always get it right.  Staten Island Chuck predicted an early spring, but this weekend we are predicted to have a significant snowstorm.

On the bright side, this may be your lucky day.  Because of the weather, I’ve had to reschedule the FREE seminar to SUNDAY FEBRUARY 7th at 1:00pm.  If you are now able to attend, please e-mail or call to RSVP.
