Welcome To Kids Enabled
As a pediatric occupational therapist, I work with many children who have sensory modulation differences. These children can be sensitive to any combination of sensory stimulation – loud noises, tags in shirts, busy visual environments, etc. They also tend to be very emotionally sensitive, and can have “meltdowns” well beyond toddler years. Part of what I do is to help these children learn to identify what may be triggers to their moods (including overwhelming sensory stimulation), and then show them how using certain simple tools can help them to feel better.
Welcome to the obligatory “Holiday Letter.” You may remember getting these in your mailbox in years gone by, before social media all but replaced them as a means of keeping up with the people you never see. You know that letter where you get to read all about what someone else has been up to so that you won’t miss one single moment of her life. Today, you can find out at any given second what Kids Enabled is up to by visiting our website at www.kidsenabled.org or checking our status on www.facebook.com/KidsEnabled, but there is still a time and a place for the old fashioned form of holiday news. Ta Da – the Kids Enabled Holiday Letter…

There are incredible resources in the Atlanta area for the 1-in-5 child who struggles with learning differences. These resources come at a cost – a high cost that is not covered by insurance or the public school system. Families are making very hard choices. They have to forego some therapies and educational interventions when their funds do not stretch far enough to cover the costs. There are parents who are spending thousands every month to pay for speech therapy and just waiting until they can afford the tutoring and social skills counseling that they also know are needed.
