Warmies: Microwavable Lavender Scented Stuffed Animals on Amazon

I just recently found these! You can place these in the microwave, and it provides some gentle heat for soothing comfort for kids. The one I saw was also slightly weighted due to the filling inside. I’m not sure if this one is weighted, but I would guess that it is too! It is filled with specially treated millet grains and dried lavender flower.

Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog

Amazon Item: Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog. This toy is great for preschool aged kids! Build fine motor skills by placing the pegs in the holes of the hedgehog. Very cute and fun also! Have them place the pegs into the holes, talk about the colors, and remove the pegs from the hedgehog to clean up!

Paper Mate Triangular Shaped Mechanical Pencils

I found these pencils recently, and they are awesome! Triangular shaped to assist with adaptive grasp for handwriting. No need for additional grips to add on to the pencils. They also have a thicker lead so they don’t break as easily as other mechanical pencil leads!

ATNR Part 1 – Episode 86

On this episode, I begin discussion about the ATNR (Asymmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex). I will talk about what it looks like, when it should integrate, and what it might look like if it doesn’t integrate in preschool and school aged kids.

Mom’s On Call – Book on Amazon

I haven’t read this one yet, but it came recommended to me by one of the families I am currently working with. I flipped through their copy briefly, and it looks like it contains some very good information, especially for first time parents!
