Summary

A step-by-step guide on how you can help your sensory child manage day-to-day challenges   

  • Do strong smells or certain food textures trigger vomiting in your child?
  • Does your child have major meltdowns when foreign things touch him/her?
  • Does your child not feel pain when he/she’s supposed to? 

Wondering what a parent is supposed to do in such situations? 

To answer this question, we will need to take a deeper look at sensory processing disorder (SPD). From this book, you will learn:

  • What is sensory processing disorder?
  • What are some common behaviors of different types of SPD that are often overlooked?
  • What are the differences between SPD and some other look-alike conditions like ADHD, OCD, ODD and anxiety disorder?
  • Can SPD be cured? What are some of the available therapy options?
  • A step-by-step practical guide on how to manage SPD at home (e.g. getting dressed, washing up), at school (e.g. sitting still, doing homework), and in the community (e.g. grocery shopping, walking in a crowded environment)
  • How can I explain my child’s sensory needs to family, friends and their teachers?

Learn how you can empower your child and help him/her thrive today!

I'm excited to try some of the ideas in the book .

This is a great go-to resource for a parent who either thinks their child has a sensory processing difficulty or was recently given a diagnosis. TONS of practical advice.This is a great resource for parents. As I read the book I had so many "ah-ha" moments where some of the things that my child did made a little more sense.

Disappointed, not many specifics on how to treat

I was hoping for much more information on how to treat the disorder in the home. The author mostly described the types of interventions available and what professionals can to to help. While I believe getting the right kind of professional help is very important, I was hoping to come away with specific things I could do to help my child on a day to day basis.

Good information for parents trying to figure out SPD

I enjoyed the text of the book. My son is newly diagnosed at 3 and a half and I’ve had a few light bulb moments listening to the book. My only problem was the narrator’s drawn out speech pattern. It was not appealing. The last word of every sentence is drawn ouuut. I had the speed it up to 1.25 so the flow was better.

Narrative is not great!

I got this title to learn about SPD in order to help my grandchildren. I will have to get the print version. The narration seemed to be geared for a grade school aged listener. I lost patience with it and quit.
