Let’s take a deep dive into the olfactory sense (smell). We’ll talk about what goes wrong when this sense is over or under performing and give you tips and tricks on how to help your child.
Twenty-One Senses believes in empowering families. Jen and Danielle are both coaches and special needs parents. Together they will help you understand your child’s struggles and provide strategies to better support a positive outcome.
Once you register, we will provide you the secure link for the meeting. If you have any questions, you can contact us at (847) 238-2535.
GivingTuesday is right around the corner!
Now more than ever, our communities need us to come together and give back to those who matter to us—not just with our money, but with our time, talents, hearts, and creativity. GivingTuesday is just that: a day of global giving to support and continue the missions of the people and organizations who do the most good in their communities.
Head over to our GivingTuesday page to learn more about how your gift can help Twenty-One Senses make a big difference to special needs and at-risk families. Can’t give money right now? No problem! Our Get Involved page lists several other ways you can help further the cause. Finally, be sure to check out the official Giving Tuesday website for more creative ways to get involved and support the organizations you love.
Happy giving, everyone!
It’s our anniversary!
The entire Twenty-One Senses team is thrilled to be celebrating one year of supporting families with sensory issues. We’ve come a long way in a short amount of time and, although there’s plenty of work left to do, we’re taking take a night off to celebrate with everyone who’s been with us on this incredible journey.
Join us this Saturday, November 14th at 8:00 PM CT for our first Virtual Trivia Night. The event is free for all, but please make sure to RSVP so we can send you a Zoom link prior to the start. Register here.
Can’t make it to the party? You can still participate in the silent auction or make a donation.
Also be sure to check out for our first ever Virtual 5k. Walk, bike, or run anytime until November 28th and help support special needs families.
As always, thank you for your continued support. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Due to concerns about the spreading rate of COVID-19, Twenty-One Senses will not be hosting or participating in any spring events. Sadly, this means Tuesday’s Sensory Night at Altitude Trampoline Park is canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Remember, there are a few simple things you can do to protect yourself and others around you.
Practice good hygiene.
- Don’t touch your face!
- Wash your hands often with soap and water and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
- Wipe down frequently touched surfaces with a bleach or antibacterial solution.
- Cough/sneeze into your elbow or a tissue and wash your hands immediately afterwards.
Practice social distancing.
- Work or study from home if at all possible.
- Avoid any unnecessary travel, public events, and large gatherings.
- If you must go out in public, try to keep roughly six feet between yourself and others.
- Avoid shaking hands, giving high fives, or kissing on the cheek.
- Stay home if you’re feeling sick, even if your symptoms are mild.
Finally, stay calm. Your children will look to you to see how they should react.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the continuation of our Sensory Spotlight series, plus some sensory-focused tips and tricks on how to manage prolonged stays at home.
