Colourfy App


I’ve just got the app Colourfy on my iPhone and it’s awesome. You may have seen the adult colouring books on shelves in book stores and for sale online. I’ve had a look at them as they are meant to be de-stressing and calming to complete however they are quite expensive and large books. However this app is free and can be taken with you on the go! I find it’s great for using as a distraction – you choose the pattern you want to colour and just tap each little section and shape to colour it in – and it fills the whole share for you perfectly to the lines (nice for those with OCD)

Give it a go, it’s available for IOS and Android phones and tablets 😉

Let me know what you think of the app if you get it below in the comments!

If Disney Princesses Had SPD/ASD

This post is awesome…

The following is my prediction of what Disney princesses (and their stories) would be like if they had SPD/ASD.

(Also, for the first time ever, I did not draw any original illustrations for this post. Instead, I added my own bits to Disney pictures. I hope you enjoy it anyway).

Cinderella

Ok, I’m skipping right to the part in the story where Cinderella goes to the Ball. Logically, if Cinderella had sensory issues, this would never work. Sure she could give it a good effort, but in the end, a meltdown is likely to ensue. No sensory sensitive princess leaves untouched after a large…

What the heck is a Sensory Processing Disorder?

Great post on what the heck sensory processing is all about…

Eating Off Plastic

What the heck is a Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)? Also called Sensory Integration Disorder, or, as I call it, “My brain hurts from all the noises and lights and junk. I can’t function or anything, so I’m just gonna go to bed.”

I have found that nobody knows what SPD is, or just how deeply it can impact a person’s life. So darn it all! I’m making a post about it.

First, what the heck is sensory processing?

All of our senses are processed through our nervous system. That is, information is collected by our senses and sent to the brain where it is processed and sorted. Once this is done, your brain tells you how to respond to that information.

Second, what the heck is a sensory processing disorder?

The disorder part comes into play when the act of sensory processing goes haywire. The sensory information gathered…

Thanks everyone for following my blog! Please keep sharing and passing it on to everyone and anybody you think it might help 😊 I’m in contact with a couple of autism charities who are also going to share my blog on their social media pages too – I just really want to raise awareness of sensory processing disorder and sensory issues that can be a result of other disorders/diagnoses.
