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!
