Sarah Smalley (Office Manager) – I am the mother of two amazing little boys – Brady & Ty – both who are on the autism spectrum. Brady was born in September 2005 and was diagnosed at 21 months of age. Ty was born in March 2008 and was diagnosed by me at his first birthday, and by the professionals a few months later. Both of my boys have been in multiple therapies since they were 15 months old. I am also the creator of www.autismpuzzlemom.com and I have presented at multiple parent support groups in the area on topics such as detoxifying your home, hiring and running a successful home therapy team, and making the right therapy choices for your child and family. I have worked as an ABA therapist on a home team and as a private preschool aide with children ages 1-9. This is not a journey I ever expected to be on and this is not what I went to college to do…but a larger power has chosen this to be my life’s work. My boys are my everything, they are my joy, they are often my stress, and they are why I have learned everything I know now, and would love to share with you. I have been trained in discrete trial ABA, the More Than Words approach to communication, LAMP application with AAC devices, as well as other OT and ST practices. I have attended multiple conferences including Autism One in Chicago and the NAA Conference in Florida. I am also very passionate about our children’s health and the options available that can help our kids feel better, their bodies to heal, and in turn allow them to learn and grow into their full potential. I am passionate about detoxifying our homes and the role the toxins in today’s society may play into the autism epidemic and other developmental delays. I do not pretend to be an expert, but I do have a wealth of knowledge by experience and trial and error. If I don’t know about it, I am sure I have a friend who does and can get you started down a road that is likely to be a long path, but one very worth taking.

Testimonials

Since Aiden started receiving therapy at Sensory Solutions a little over two years ago, I am continually amazed by the progress he is making thanks to his wonderful therapists and the team at Sensory Solutions. By addressing all of his needs in an integrated and collaborative way, he began making gains almost immediately. Aiden’s therapists do an excellent job of meeting him where he is each week, and tailoring his therapy to meet his unique needs. When Aiden started at Sensory Solutions he primarily used sign language to communicate; his therapists helped him communicate with sign language and used that as a bridge to speech. His therapists have worked together to ensure his sensory needs are met, along with his speech and motor needs, which has been critical to his success. As a parent, I have felt empowered and better able to help Aiden through the knowledge his therapists share. Aiden feels cared for and supported at Sensory Solutions, and looks forward to therapy each week. His strong relationships with his therapists are a credit to his therapists and a huge motivator for him. Aiden’s therapists know him and his abilities, and are truly dedicated to helping him reach his full potential.
