What Professionals are Saying
OT, Personal Trainer
"Matt's Course covers everything from application of sensory integration theory to tips on fun and effective equipment. Matt himself is knowledgeable and passionate. As an OT and trainer, I highly recommend this interactive workshop"!
"Matt is amazing! So knowledgeable and a great resource for anyone working with people who are neurodiverse. I took his sensorimotor workshop for fitness professionals, and it was outstanding. Packed full of helpful information, including tools and activities I can immediately incorporate into programming with little to no additional equipment needed to get started. I absolutely recommend getting in touch with him if you work with these populations or know anyone who does. He has workshops for everything, and a ton of knowledge to share. Thank you Matt"!!
"The Certification Level 1 course was easily one of the most worthwhile Professional Developments of my PE teaching career! Highly engaging and informative, Matt’s course lends itself extremely well to ANY fitness professional working with students with ASD. Strongly recommend"!
to challenging behaviors
Why won’t my kids eat certain foods? Why won’t my kid sit still long? Why does my kid get overwhelmed and melt down so easily? Why it takes so long for my kid to do anything? Why does my child wait to use the bathroom right when we're leaving the house? My kid runs everything!
These are typical behaviors for kids that might have difficulty with sensory processing. You are not alone.
More and more kids struggle with sensory processing disorders and other neuro-differences.
Sensory Fitness offers educational videos geared for parents to gain a deep insight into children’s behaviors, strategies to use at home, and specific activities to connect challenges with solutions.
