For children with sensory integration issues – those who have difficulty processing everyday sensations and exhibit unusual behaviours such as avoiding or seeking out touch, movement, sounds, and sights – this groundbreaking book is an invaluable resource.  Long thought to affect only autistic children, or mistaken for ADHD, SI dysfunction is finally being recognised as a separate condition.  Co-authored by a paediatric occupational therapist and a parent of a child with SI issues, Raising a Sensory Smart Child is as warm and accessible as it is authorative and details.
·    How the senses actually work and integrate with each other
·    How and where to get the very best professional help
·    “Sensory diet” activities that meet your child’s needs
·    Practical solutions for daily problems – from brushing hair to getting dressed to going on family outings
·    Using “sensory smarts” to help children with developmental delays, learning and attention problems
·    Ways to advocate for your child at school and make schools “sensory smart”
·    How to empower your child and teen in the world
·    Complementary therapies, recommended resources, and helpful Web sites

These are some quotes about the book: -
“A must read for all parents who have children with sensory integration issues.”
-    Larry Silver, M.D., author of The Misunderstood Child
“A wonderful combination of research information and practical strategies.”
-    Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, author of Raising a Spirited Child
“Both parents and teachers will find a wealth of insight and advice on helping our wonderful – though sometimes challenging – kids.”
-    Patty Romanowski Bashe, MSEd., Executive Director, The David
Center, co-author of The Oasis Guide to Asperger Syndrome
