Michele advocates for all children and families impacted by sensory processing differences to help them and others to understand the impact of these challenges on social emotional functioning and mental health. She believes that challenges in sensory processing always lead to challenges in emotional regulation, developing and maintaining relationships, social skills, and overall mental health. She has embarked on a journey to learn more to support children and families by engaging in Advanced Certification in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health at Montclair State University. She is certified in the Developmental Individual Differences Relation-based model (DIR) and is faculty of Profectum Foundation where she educates therapists all over the world on social-emotional development and the DIR model.
Michele Parkins is passionate about working with families and other therapists and she continues to do so as a clinician and educator. She continues to provide consultation to schools as she has done for over 10 years. Michele is also a mother of two children with sensory processing differences. She uses her real life experiences to help her clients better understand the impact of SPD on family dynamics and relationships and the day to day demands of life with sensory processing differences.
