Most of us have heard the term – “sensory processing” – but do you really know what it means?

In this episode, we are joined by Christie Kiley, a pediatric occupational therapist (OT and creator of the blog MamaOt.

Our discussion focuses on Christie’s background as both an OT and a mother of two, as well as some really helpful definitions and tips about sensory processing (also known as sensory integration).

This episode and our focus on sensory development is applicable for families and educators of all children, including those with sensory processing difficulties.

Christie is a mama to two precious kiddos and a pediatric occupational therapist (OT) to many. Her mission with Mama OT is to encourage, educate, and empower those who care for children by sharing helpful insights and fun activities. You can learn more about Christie and the story of how she became an OT on her blog.
