Hi! Thanks for taking a look at Putting Socks on Chickens. So I know the first thing going through your mind is “how did you come up with the name Putting Socks on Chickens?” Honestly, I did a Facebook poll with my friends about suggestions for a blog name and this Putting Socks on Chickens won. Plus the meaning that I associate with it fits my life perfectly…not possible without a lot of work.I work (part-time) for a non-profit foundation for students with complex learning disabilities by day and an aspiring blogger by night. In between, I’m a mommy to two adorable children. My husband thinks that I have so much free time because I work part-time, but truth is I work usually before

I work for a non-profit foundation for students with complex learning disabilities by day and an aspiring blogger by night. In between, I’m a mommy to two adorable children, which we all know is more than a full-time job in itself.

My oldest child was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) at the age of 5. Two years later, we got the diagnosis of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and ADHD. Living in a rural area where resources to help our child are limited at best. So I did what any mom would do and made it my life’s mission to research and educate myself as best as I can so that I can help my child.

On this journey to educate myself about SPD, OCD, and ADHD, I found myself wanting to help other parents and family members of children similar to my own. Whether it be a personal story that you can connect with, tips and ideas to help your child, or finding a good resource, I want Putting Socks on Chickens to be a place where parents don’t feel alone and are encouraged to keep fighting for their child.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read Putting Socks on Chickens.
