Claudia Faierman-Shulman is a seasoned professional with over 25 years of experience in International Business, Marketing, and Management. Previously, she served as the Vice President for Être Belle North America, where she represented the company on National Television at the Shopping Channel. After becoming a mother, Claudia made the decision to dedicate herself fully to motherhood, a role she felt enthusiastic and passionate about.
When one of her own children experienced a language delay, Claudia immersed herself in the world of special needs and education. She delved into conferences, workshops, and lectures on Autism, Sensory Integration, Social Skills Training, Behaviour Analysis and Feeding Management. Through extensive research and connections with renowned clinicians, Claudia recognized the significance of learning through play.
With talent and creativity, Claudia developed unique games to engage her children and tackle challenging concepts in a fun and effortless manner. In 2010, she created the My Feelings game with the purpose of helping her child identify feelings in himself and others and cope with emotions in a positive way.
Encouraged by the positive responses from respected clinicians, Claudia embarked on the monumental task of developing and producing the My Feelings game to make it accessible to all children. In 2012, she founded Sensational Learners Inc., a company dedicated to crafting fun educational games for kids of all abilities.
Through collaboration with Dr. Lucy J. Miller, a pioneer in Sensory Integration and Self-Regulation, Claudia's My Feelings game gained international recognition.
Since its launch in 2015, the My Feelings game has gained global success, providing parents with a fun and insightful tool to connect with their children. By engaging in playful interactions centered around emotions, children of all abilities develop a deeper understanding of their own feelings and those of others. Through fun play, children can learn to identify and articulate their feelings, navigate challenges, manage emotions, and build healthy relationships with the grown-ups in their lives.
The My Feelings game creates a unique opportunity for bonding between parents and children, fostering a deeper connection and strengthening the parent-child relationship. It transcends cultural and linguistic boundaries, promoting inclusivity and empathy. Claudia's My Feelings game empowers all children to express themselves, understand their emotions, and cultivate essential social and emotional skills. By embracing the joy of learning through play, parents and children embark on a shared journey of exploration, connection, and growth.
Claudia continues doing workshops and presentations at schools, clinics, and major retailers, aiming to make the revolutionary My Feelings game accessible to all. Her ultimate goal is to empower parents to fully enjoy their children and to empower children to fully enjoy their childhood.
