Pocket Resources For Parents, Teachers & Therapists


Looking for resources for children with special needs?

Welcome!  I’m a mom and pediatric occupational therapist. My passion is helping others and creating fun activities that anyone can use. Every idea I share has been lovingly practiced with my own children, in schools, and in my therapy clinic.

Both of my own children have special needs so I personally understand the challenges you face.                                           Keep my books in your pocket, I’m here anytime you need me!
