My son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder back in 2006. At the time we lived near Norman, Oklahoma and an amazing Occupational Therapist, Teresa Lee, entered our lives and made sense of all the "odd behavior" we were seeing in our child every day. I mean, what child doesn't like to go to the playground, and how could a simple bath bring screams of death out of my sweet little toddler?
Miss Teresa was like Mary Poppins in my world. She taught me how to mother my difficult child. Moving to the Tulsa area was traumatic simply because I didn't think anyone could possibly replace her and I knew I couldn't do this on my own.
Enter the Tulsa Sunshine Center. We now know that my son has ADHD, SPD, OCD and Asperger's Syndrome. My son began receiving Speech, OT and Behavioral services at the Sunshine Center shortly after our move here 7 years ago. He goes twice a week.
They are a fantastic team and I honestly couldn't ask for more. Sometimes they are the answer he needs and sometimes they have been MY answer. It's a waiting room full of moms like me and we talk. We encourage each other. There's no judgement.
As a homeschooler it's not always easy to take help from "the outside", but the staff at TSC have been more than considerate of my feelings. They ask about my curriculum to support it and suggest helpful ideas I can implement at home. They recommend android apps and soothing techniques and partner with our family in a valuable way.
From check in, to the moment you leave, you will be treated as family.
In OT with Mrs. Rachel (our new Mary Poppins), my son:
Mrs. Karen is our speech guru. She has helped my son immensely. She now sees my oldest daughter and my third child as well.
If you have a child who is embarrassed by their speech or demonstrating low confidence, Karen works magic.
My oldest daughter has become a new person through Karen's influence. She learned not only how to pace her speech and articulate, but also grew the confidence to find her voice and use it boldly. I love the results we are seeing.
For privacy sake, I won't show or comment on the Behavior health team except to say that they are gifted encouragers who are passionate about helping children.

Why am I reviewing a place? I usually review products.
The answer is simple: They've made a difference for my family and maybe they can for yours as well.
I give them 5 stars and my sincere appreciation.
