Sensory Strategies From Harkla's In-House Experts



We are two very passionate Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants who specialize in Sensory Integration and Primitive Reflex Integration.

After over 6 years of working with children in outpatient settings, we realized we wanted to bring our expertise to more families and therapists. With this mission in mind, we started the All Things Sensory Podcast, and have been creating in-depth trainings to help children with sensory challenges and retained primitive reflexes.

We hope the Holiday Sensory Survival Guide can make the holidays a blast for your sensory kiddo and an enjoyable time for you as a parent!

Life-Changing Advice For 

Sensory & Special Needs Families


“With each Harkla product we purchase, I feel this sense of relief - I’m giving my daughter what she needs. I’m able to provide for her. I am able to care for her. This company has given me the tools I’ve needed to comfort my child. There literally is no bigger ask of a product.”




“Deciding to be a part of ‘The Club’ was an easy decision. The cost is minimal for the amount of knowledge you get all in one place. Taking the time to learn, implement, and following through with new strategies can be overwhelming and honestly quite tiresome, but I know I can ask questions within the club in a judgement-free zone. These ladies are SO passionate about what they do it's almost impossible not to want to join in on the fun.”
