Get your child to finally wear new clothes
(without completely losing your patience)
Does this sound familiar?
🦋"Everything itches her"
🦋"Buying new things is worse"
🦋"Suddenly an outfit doesn't work"
🦋"She only wears one pair of pants"
🦋"Every morning is a battle, it takes us up to an hour to find something that works"
You've tried everything to get your child to wear "appropriate" clothes to school, but nothing works.
You've bribed, you've yelled, you've threatened, you've BEGGED.
But your child won't budge.
Your child's wardrobe consists of the same 4 or 5 things and when they start to grow out of it, you're doomed.
You have that ONE off brand, random off-the-rack shirt you got at Walmart but they don't sell it anymore.
You've spent money on the latest sensory friendly clothing that every mom in the SPD group swears by, but it still isn't the answer.
Your child takes one look at a shirt, pants, socks or shoes and immediately throws a fit.
That's because, they probably have some touch processing challenges and clothes really are hard for their brain and skin to tolerate.
If this rings a bell, you're in the right place.
There is a way to get your child to willingly try on new or non preferred clothes.
and dare I say it… without crying?
There is a way to maintain your relationship with your child AND have them show up to school in appropriate clothing (it may not match, but that's the least of our worries here).
"I cannot express how much this book as changed my life, changed my daughter's life. It has helped us in ways I had never thought possible"- Rachela, parent
🤣"You've got to be kidding Laura, it's not possible to achieve the holy grail."
It's totally possible!
I'll show you exactly how to achieve this in my e-book.
In case you don't believe me, here's a peek at the process.
In 3 straight to the point, no-fluff chapters (I'm not a fan of fluff), I'll take you through each step and provide you with examples, worksheets and printables to walk you through the process from stressed to dressed.
FROM STRESSED TO DRESSED WAS CREATED BY AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST TO GUIDE PARENTS IN HELPING THEIR CHILDREN TOLERATE A VARIETY OF CLOTHING
Hey! I'm Laura
I'm a pediatric Occupational Therapist and mama to a 6-year-old firecracker with SPD and anxiety. As a parent, I completely get the feelings of desperation and exhaustion when you JUST WANT YOUR KID TO DO THE THING. Sometimes the "thing" is try a new food, and sometimes it's to wear new clothes (or wear clothes at all).
I’ve worked with dozens of clients who had some extreme clothing sensitivities.
I’m talking hole in the dress, same shoes for the entire school year, can’t wear underwear and has to sleep naked.
In the clinic, I worked with them on sensory integration techniques, but at home, I gave their parents a very structured and regimented plan to help them practice clothing introduction throughout the week.
I used to hand write these home programs and spend my late nights writing emails to them to explain the rationale behind things like the just right challenge.
|Finally, I’ve decided to write it up into a cute (and brightly colored, because hey, it's me) little ebook for you.
Whether you’re a parent or a therapist, this step by step guide is fool-proof.
"Life after this book... it's liberating. It's like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders."- Rachela, parent
See what this parent has to say about the e-book
“From Stressed to Dressed” has changed my life. Sounds like I’m being dramatic when I say it changed my life but I can’t tell you how much truth and value there is to my statement. This book has made me gain such incredible insight and knowledge on the how to and what to do’s for my daughter and her sensory issues.
In just ONE month of following her four step program my daughter is now wearing more clothing items that she never would have even dared to look at. But it’s not to say that I haven’t had to really work and dedicate a lot of my free time to get this to work, but now a month down the road, it’s all worth it. Every deep breath, meltdown and tantrum.
So far, while using her four step program, we have managed to hang up and graduate her school skirt with shorts underneath (THATS A HUGE WIN) and now this week we started her on wearing her school pants which so far has been successful. (Going on 3 hours as I sit here and type this).
This book teaches us parents how to introduce new clothes to our children, using her four steps in such a simple yet informative way and I highly highly highly recommend this book to any one who is need of guidance for sensory sensitivities.
I’ve learned to breathe deeply, walk away during a meltdown and take it one pair of pants at a time.
There is hope and light at the end of your tunnel...good luck!!!
What's in the e-book?
What age is this program intended for?
Is this for parents or OTs?
Can this work even if my child isn't getting OT?
