RISE - rise-with-sensory - Your Kid's Table

Learn powerful sensory strategies to support and overcome

your child’s sensory needs so they can RISE to their full potential.



The Struggles Your Child Has

Are NOT Your Fault

Pay Close Attention because this could change your child’s future…

Most parents never imagine that their child will struggle with a hidden challenge that affects so many different aspects of their life, and ultimately keeps them from reaching their full potential. This hidden challenge could affect your child too… 


Do You Ever Feel Like…

Your child isn’t like the other kids.

Something is a little different and you’re not sure how to help them.


You’re totally overwhelmed and exhausted by your child crying and melting down.

You don’t know what you’re supposed to be doing differently.

Your child is wild, active, and never stops.

They struggle to follow directions, but something tells you it’s more than them just being “bad”.

Other people don’t understand your child.


They treat them unfairly because of the way they act.

Your child is very sensitive to textures, lights, sounds, and/or movement.

You try to help them, but nothing seems to work.

If you answered yes to any of the above, then your child may have difficulty with sensory processing.




Sensory is Often the Hidden Reason Your Child is Labeled as Bad, Weird, Quirky, Hyper, or Sensitive…


Likely, nobody told you about sensory processing when you became a parent, yet it is the absolute foundation to your child’s development. It affects every and all aspects of your child’s life.


That’s why when a child’s sensory processing isn’t working well, it can cause you and them a lot of stress, frustration, or missed opportunities from participating fully in their childhood.


And, your child could specifically struggle with any of the following:



Paying Attention


Following Directions


Sitting Still


Overly Sensitive to Smells








Staying Alert and Being Tired, even though they slept enough


Constantly Seeking Out Movement by running, climbing, and crashing.


And, that’s just to name a few. Unfortunately, since most people don’t know about sensory processing, kids with sensory processing difficulties get labeled as bad, weird, quirky, hyper, or sensitive. 


But, that’s not the whole picture, not even close.

The Truth Is Many Kids Are Misunderstood

They’re misunderstood because nobody is seeing the hidden reason for the frustrating, exhausting, or confusing things they do.


But, once you know that your child’s brain isn’t processing sensations well, that it’s all because of their sensory processing, you can understand AND help your child actually improve any sensory issues they have.



YOU can improve your kid’s sensory issues with Sensory Strategies!!!

It’s true. Sensory strategies are specific tools and techniques that do two things:


 Sensory strategies help your child manage their sensory issues so that they can cope, adjust, and participate in the various activities of their life.


 Sensory strategies, when used well, actually can rewire the brain to improve sensory processing!

Sensory Strategies are the Missing Solution, Unless They’re Used Wrong…


And, many people do use sensory strategies the wrong way, even though that’s not their intention. They’re often trying to DIY sensory strategies from what they find from a Google search or heard from a friend. The problem with that is that you have to know which strategies to use and when.


Because kids have so many different sensory issues, the wrong sensory strategy for your child could actually make their sensory processing worse (gasp!) or be a total waste of time.


I know you don’t want that. 


Unfortunately, when parents try to dig deeper and learn more about sensory processing, they often become overwhelmed. The little comprehensive information that’s out there is often complex and difficult to follow.



Using sensory strategies well is what you need to have your child overcome sensory challenges and RISE to their full potential.

I’ve been a pediatric occupational therapist for over 16 years and very early in my career, I learned the power that sensory strategies had to utterly change a child’s life. So many times it 100% is the missing link.

Because of that, I’ve made it my mission to simplify sensory for parents, and other professionals too, so that they can help their child rise to be everything they possibly can be without their sensory issues getting in the way.

That work began here in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA where I served hundreds of families, and then expanded to thousands around the world through the Your Kid’s Table blog and online programs.

And now, we have a brand new program specifically designed to help kids with sensory processing difficulties…

Christine Z.

“Omg this class is gold! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for to help my sensory seeking son! The layout was clear and organized. The bonus videos and sensory cards are such a big help! We have incorporated sensory strategies in our everyday life and I already see an improvement even after 1 week!”

RISE with Sensory is for You…

If your child has any sensory issues that confuse, overwhelm, or stress you or your child in any way.

  It doesn’t matter if your child’s sensory issues are big or specific. It doesn’t matter if your child is 2 or 10. And, it doesn’t matter if sensory issues are the only thing your child struggles with or they have a diagnosis of SPD, ADHD, or Autism. Sensory processing difficulties affect a wide range of kids, and this program will show you how to hone in on your child’s unique needs and work through them simply, step-by-step.

5 Sensory Learning Modules


Module 1: Sensory Foundations

Most parents know little to nothing about sensory processing, yet that’s exactly what’s causing the challenges your child is facing. Learning the foundations of sensory will give you the solid footing you need to use sensory strategies well with your child. 

Highlights from Module 1 Lessons:

  • How sensory issues can actually be improved in your child
  • 4 different types of sensory needs kids have
  • What to do when your child is having a meltdown

Module 2: The 8 Senses

Didn’t you learn about just 5 senses in kindergarten? Well, there’s 3 more, and they have A LOT to do with sensory processing. Knowing how each of these senses works, and what types of sensory red flags you see for any or all of the senses, let’s you know exactly where the sensory issues are coming from.

Highlights from Module 2 Lessons:

  • 3 powerhouse senses that affect every aspect of your child’s development
  • All about oral sensory processing and what it has to do with your child’s picky eating
  • What interoception is and why it’s the explanation to your child’s big emotions, poor appetite, difficulty going to the bathroom, and more



Module 3: Powerful Sensory Tools

When you get to Module 3, you’ll have a solid foundation of finally understanding the confusing, frustrating, and quirky behaviors your child has. Now you need to know how to support and overcome them. You’ll begin to learn how to do that in this module as you learn 3 different sensory strategies.

Highlights from Module 3 Lessons:

  • What sensory input is and when to use it
  • The heart of the whole program, the RISE strategy, a step-by-step tool to help your child with any sensory need
  • How and when to use Sensory Integration activities to improve your child’s sensory processing 


Module 4: Sensory Input, Activities and Strategies

Parents often find examples of sensory activities online, but they don’t know why they’re using them or when they should use them. The truth is not all sensory activities are helpful and some can even make your child’s sensory processing worse, but in this module, you’ll learn dozens of different activities and ways to give your child calming sensations that meet their specific needs.

Highlights from Module 4 Lessons:

  • How to desensitize your child that can’t stand touching different textures, smelling smells, or participating in anything that involves movement
  • How to increase the awareness of your child that seems to have no energy and is totally uninterested in learning, playing, or being active
  • How to calm and focus your active wild child so they can learn, sleep, and follow directions 


Module 5: Sensory by Design

Once you learn all of the ways to give your child sensory activities and strategies, now you have to apply it to real life. What does that look like in your home? What about at school or daycare, when you’re not there? Or, how about when you’re at a birthday party or on a Target run? Learn how to easily use sensory strategies in all of these environments!

Highlights from Module 5 Lessons:

  • Teach your child to advocate for their sensory needs, when you can’t be with them
  • How to talk to your child’s teacher about their sensory needs
  • What sensory tools to have on hand when you’re in public


RISE student

“My 2 1/2-year-old twins have a wide range of sensory needs. We’ve been in OT for some time, but the time is so short with our therapists, I didn’t feel like I really knew what was going on. This course has been invaluable in terms of elevating my understanding! We’ve already started integrating some of the specific suggestions…  Truly. SO SO helpful.”

Carrie Y.

“I am loving being able to help the families I work with to develop a sensory lifestyle plan working more specifically on their child’s sensory needs using RISE. It is so much more useful than just trying to create a sensory diet. I love this class so much!!!!”

Sarah L.

“So much more understanding!  I am really thankful to be understanding my kids better and being able to see some of their more annoying (to me) struggles from a completely different perspective!  It explains a lot of the struggles and odd things my kids do!”

Marion C.

“Excellent explanation of SI.  I have read a number of books and taken several courses but Alisha’s breakdown and specific examples of SI are the best I have come across… So glad I took this course!  I will recommend it to all my fellow therapists!”


I know RISE with Sensory works, but I want you to feel confident in that too, so I welcome you to take 30 days to learn the strategies and begin to implement them.

When you add it all up, Joining RISE with Sensory is Worth Over 950$


But, that’s not even close to what your investment will be when you join…

Payment Plan Option

  • All of the features of the RISE with Sensory class, but available in 4 monthly payments of 69$.


“You’ve helped us piece together all our underlying issues to address by implementing RISE steps… Words can’t express the gratitude, the sense of relief in knowing how to help my child that was struggling so much and that we have a clear plan ahead. Through implementing RISE and having your support through Q and A’s, you have helped us figure out what many many professionals before you weren’t able to pinpoint or solve.”


“I’m a parent of two special needs little kids and have therapists in and out of my home all week. It wasn’t until I learned Alisha’s sensory strategies that I finally understood what no home therapist ever explained to me – sensory and how to address it in the best and most impactful way… it changed our home and our lives as we now have the tools to address our children’s needs.”

Is RISE with Sensory Enough for My Kids Sensory Needs…

Do they need occupational therapy?


While this program does not replace traditional sensory integration therapy, for many children, it prevents or greatly reduces their time in therapy.

With therapy costs averaging about 150$ per hour, many insurance companies will cover only a few sessions or none, even if your child has Sensory Processing Disorder because it isn’t recognized as a diagnosis yet. 

However, if your child is already in OT, RISE with Sensory is an excellent addition to their therapy because YOU will learn how to help them at home, day in and day out of their life.

  • Recall the 5 strategies used to work on Interoception awareness
  • Describe ways to teach children about their arousal level and how to change it to match the activity they’re participating in
  • Identify sensory strategies to utilize within the home, school/daycare and public settings
What if my child has Autism, ADHD, or another diagnosis? What if they don’t? Will this program help them?
Many children with sensory needs don’t have or need any diagnosis, yet sensory issues have a direct impact on their life. If that’s the case, then RISE with Sensory is a great fit because it will teach you the tools to help them overcome their sensory challenges. While not all kids with sensory needs have a diagnosis, most children with Autism, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, and numerous other diagnoses almost certainly have sensory processing difficulties. Often these sensory difficulties are overlooked because they’re attributed to the diagnosis, but addressing them as you’ll learn to do in RISE with Sensory can have an enormous impact on their development. Parents are often amazed at their progress.
Do I need to buy any expensive sensory tools or toys?
There’s a lot of misleading information targeted towards parents about sensory toys and tools. While they can be helpful in some instances in specific situations, RISE with Sensory teaches you how to use what’s already in your environment. You will learn about some specific tools, most of which are inexpensive. And, what tools may be helpful for your child’s specific needs, if you decide to invest in one. But, no sensory tools or toys are a necessity for successfully implementing this program.

RISE student

“This has been amazing to be able to really narrow down the areas and strategies I needed to help my son.  I now have the confidence in helping him that I lacked previously and can formulate a long term plan.  Thank you!”


This program helps you understand your child’s sensory needs, how to dig deeper into your childs needs, and how to help them. You are given real answers and solutions and with things you probably already have in your house.”


This makes total sense now! I’m so thankful to have an arsenal of tools to choose from that my son actually responds to.

What Happens If You Don’t Learn How to Use Sensory Strategies Well?

Unfortunately, I see this happen all the time. Parents have no idea that the meltdown, wild behavior, or sensitivities have anything to do with sensory processing.

And, it breaks my heart because I know the missing link that can change everything.

But, knowing that sensory is the cause is only the first step. There’s so much more, and all too often, parents get overwhelmed and just return to the grind and frustration because they don’t know how to help their child with their sensory needs.   

That struggle is why I’m here. I know there’s another way through learning those powerful, but do-able, sensory strategies so that your child can truly rise to their full potential. 

And, so that your stress and worry is greatly reduced, if not totally eliminated! 

I can’t wait to meet you inside the RISE with Sensory program!



“I’m again in awe, because being calm, relaxed, and able to follow along with the art activity like the rest of the kids in his class is so different from his usual daily struggles. Sensory has been the key!!!! He’s now getting the right input his body needs so he can be regulated enough to do a task like art work with his school friends.”
