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.- CAROL STOCK KRANOWITZ, AUTHOR, THE OUT-OF-SYNC CHILD As a classroom teacher for more than 20 years, this bookhas 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. - VANESSA LEVIN, FOUNDER OF PRE-KPAGES.COM AND AUTHOR OF A FABULOUS FIRST YEAR AND BEYOND This reader-friendly book is a handy guide for parentsthat 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.- ANGELA HANSCOM, MOT, OTR/L, CEO AND FOUNDER OF TIMBERNOOK AND AUTHOR OF BALANCED & BAREFOOT I am really excited about this book because I know itis 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.- HOLLY HOMER, MPT, FOUNDER OF KIDS ACTIVITIES BLOG AND CO-AUTHOR OF 101 KIDS ACTIVITIES THAT ARE THE BESTEST, FUNNEST EVER!
