Holly Homer, MPT, founder of Kids Activities Blog and co-author of 101 Kids Activities that are the Bestest, Funnest Ever!I am really excited about this book because I know it is going to help parents like me. As a mom of three boys, our family has dealt with our share of sensory processing issues. Even though I am a Physical Therapist, I didn't initially identify the cause of the problem which lead to frustration and tantrums. Once we knew what it was and what to do, everything changed for the better.
As a classroom teacher for more than 20 years, this book has given me tremendous insight into working with students who are easily overstimulated by noise, and struggle to sit still and pay attention. The strategies suggested in this book and the explanations given make so much sense! I feel like sensory processing is piece of the puzzle that has been missing my entire career. Now I can finally put everything together to help teachers and children in the classroom.
This reader-friendly book is a handy guide for parents that have children with sensory issues of any kind. With great gentleness and humility,Sensory Processing 101 describes sensory processing disorder from both a therapist's perspective and a parent's perspective - unveiling and simplifying sensory issues from an intolerance of getting messy to having to put anything and everything in the mouth. Grounded in clinical expertise and loaded with personal experiences, this book is a gem for parents looking for answers.
What a practical, reassuring, visually appealing, lovely book! Not just an excellent introductory “101” course on SPD, this is also an “All-in-One” resource book, with its engaging activities and reproducible review pages to slip in your pocket or share with others who care for children with sensory challenges.
ALL children have unique sensory preferences and needs. When we don't fully understand sensory processing, we may misinterpret behaviors, labeling children as "naughty" or "spoiled". When parents and teachers understand the basics of sensory processing, they are more tuned into kids' basic needs and can use simple strategies to address them at home and in the classroom.The Details Buy Now
