We started Sensible Sensory with one simple goal in mind. The idea behind this goal came after several years of helplessly trying everything possible to improve the lifestyle and schooling lives of our children. Navigating life as a family of four, each diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (and other ‘complimenting’ conditions) it was a continual up-hill battle to find what works – when what works is different for everyone.
Sensible Sensory was our way to help others and bridge the gap for families and individuals who were facing the same challenges and help to find the right choices, making sensible sensory decisions along the way.

For us, it all began in 2014… life was different, the world was different, but we were still much the same that we are today. We face the same triggers, the hard parts of each day are still there… but something is different. Fast forward to today and thanks to an obsessive nature (superpower courtesy of ASD) and the desire to know every possible fact, issue, and component of a topic – we have a comprehensive understanding of what works for our family, and what just simply does nothing.
It took some time, but after we settled from the shakeup resulting from the comprehensive testing and evaluations for not one, not two, but FOUR diagnosis’ of complex conditions.
So, we picked up the pieces and set off on our journey into the seemingly never-ending pathway that is learning to live life with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Anxiety, and Stress.
Thanks to everything we learned through our successes and failures navigating life with special needs we will continue to share our experience and expertise with people who can benefit from this information. Since the beginning of the Sensible Sensory site we have and will continue to make sure people are provided with the information needed to make informed and research-backed decisions.
