The world we all share is overwhelming and at times, underwhelming for some! This book beautifully illustrates how to aid connection for these scenarios, both with the external world and the inner world of interoception. Building connection so emotional regulation can occur is the only way to build healthy and happy individuals. Dr. Wenn Lawson - Autistic adult, psychologist & authorMy autistic son's sensory difficulties were severe when he was young and had a big impact on his learning. I completed the sensory questionnaire in this book which I found easy to do and enlightening. I felt I understood him better and realised the importance for sensory play which was supported by his school. Now as a young adult his sensory difficulties have much less impact on his daily life and do not stop him experiencing new activities. This book is easy to read, gives guidance to parents and practical examples/strategies - a must read for any parent of an autistic child.Jackie Powell - parent & Makaton tutor
