About Me

I am Katina.  I love to travel, read, write, eat, cook, play board games, snuggle my children, take pictures, and sometimes I slowly do sprint triathlons.  This blog is all about the long journey we’ve had to get our son a seemingly accurate diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder (or Sensory Integration Disorder/Dysfunction- the labels are used synonymously), followed by a diagnosis of Nonverbal Learning Disorder (or Disability), and also about the roller coaster we are on now, as we try to help him and us learn coping strategies.  I am not an expert, but I do have first-hand parenting experience.

I started this blog to express myself, to reach out to other people who may have children like Cameron, and hopefully, to help the children who are struggling– If their families better understand them,  then their lives could be that much easier!

During the day, I am a teacher of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing.  By night, I wish I was a Broadway star, but I’m grateful to be a mom and wife.  I am so lucky to have a fantastic husband, two amazing children, and fabulous friends who listen to and encourage me.  Happy Reading!

I wanted to say thank you! Thank you for creating this blog and sharing your personal experiences. Our son was diagnosed with SPD (Auditory & Visual) a couple of months ago and we have entered in the OT phase with some Behavioral Play therapy. As overwhelming as this is, I found comfort in your words and at times felt as though you were reading my mind. Know that this blog has helped many more than just me.
What an adventure this is and will continue to be!

Thank you for you kind words, and thank you for reading! Writing is my therapy, and I’m so pleased that I’m fortunate enough that others find comfort in my experiences. I have so much more to say, but as my son gets older, I feel like I need to be a bit more sensitive to his feelings. Before he genuinely didn’t care, now he’s a bit more opinionated about what I write. With that said, I hope you continue reading when I do write because I love the opportunity to help other people with similar experiences!
