"If I feel overwhelmed, they must feel it ten times as much."

This was an accurate observation from a fellow parent who spoke the truth.

Sometimes the things we surround ourselves with can be a tricky maze of sensory issues for our child. We may be able to see the bumps like they can, or we may have had no idea how to help…yet.

If you are new to this journey, or have been around for a while, don't be afraid to ask for help. Or to say you don't understand. Or take things slow.

What you and your child need is support. Someone who can be part of your team to help you and your family bring clarity, learn new approaches, and increase understanding.

About Me

Hi! I'm Katie Sanders, your Sensory Designer and HSP (highly sensitive person) Coach. It's a pleasure to meet you!

As a child, I didn't understand why I couldn't process as much sensory input as other kids. I was labeled as moody and shy, but it's only been later in life that I have found my brain processes things differently and am HSP with ADHD, auditory processing disorder and dyslexia. A blessing in disguise, these now allows me to understand more fully my autistic son's unique set of needs.

My specialties swirl around assessing how colors, shapes, textures, smells and other stimuli influence a person's feelings and behavior. These ingredients also allow me to create personalized spaces that help calm your child's profile of sensitivities.

My goal is to help families become brilliant support systems for their children, without depleting themselves.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

"I cannot think of anyone better for this type of job than Katie. When you first meet her you are hit with a sense of calming. She is so knowledgeable in this area. I have seen how she creates a lovely, calm environment for her own son, as well as other children. She is very passionate about this and would be an asset to any family that is struggling to create the space they need. I highly recommend her."

Work With Me

To limit sensory overload, together we will use a variety of tools to design welcoming spaces that make sense to your child. We work in tandem using your observations to help build the autonomy and rhythms your child craves. I also work with your therapist's recommendations to bridge their expertise into your home.

For your next therapy session, here is a free Session Notes download (no email required) to take notes and track progress. I can then use these notes to zero in on the problem areas your child is having.
