Preschool OT YouTube Channel

To provide resources and consultation to families in an accessible way, I have recorded these presentations and published them on YouTube. In the past, we have hosted 'Parent Information Talks' where parents could come and listen to these presentations in person, but let's face it: it can be tough to get out the door in the evening with young children! We hope that by having these resources online, parents and families can learn all the same information, at your own convenience.  

YouTube Presentation on Sensory Function

Does your child's behavior leave you puzzled? Does your child have strong preferences towards food or clothing? Does your child seek out rough-house play or shy away from physical situations? Find out why these behaviors make perfect sense for your child and get some answers and advice for how to respond to your child's sensory needs.
