7 Practical Calming Strategies for Kids: The FREE Online Course


If you’ve got a child that struggles with calming down, you’re not alone! This mini-course was made with you in mind by Lynne Jackson, an occupational therapist and co-founder of Connected Families. It has 7 simple sensory calming strategies for you to do with your child, as they learn to experience calmness and regulate their sensory system.

Is this course for you? Probably, and definitely if…

  • One of your kids just feels more sensitive or intense than other kids
  • Your child can’t seem to calm down when angry or anxious, or when it’s time to focus or sleep
  • You need practical strategies to help your child today

The course includes:

  1. The Vacuum Cleaner
  2. The Bowling Ball
  3. The Pillow Sandwich
  4. The Steamroller
  5. The Blanket Burrito
  6. Giant Feet
  7. 5-Minute Massage
  8. A robust resource page to connect you to more materials (many of which are free) to help you in your journey

All techniques are demonstrated in video format by Lynne Jackson, OTR, so you can feel confident putting your new skills to action.
