There are other books that give more comprehensive details on the inner workings of sensory integration problems, and more complete lists of the hundreds of ways they can manifest in a child's daily behaviours. But this book beats all when it comes to ideas you can try and therapeutic activities you can do with minimal equipment and expense. The emphasis is on fun, and tailoring the program to your child's preferences and needs. Absolutely the perfect book for someone whose child has been diagnosed with SI issues, and is saying, "Okay, now what do I *DO*???" And highly useful for others who haven't even come quite that far on the diagnostic journey. I love that it addresses every aspect of the child's day, from bathing and dressing to school and other out-of-the-house events.
The explanations of SI problems and SI needs are compact, readable and simple enough that you can lift them and use them when giving your "What is SI?" speech to teachers, friends, sitters, whoever.
Accompany this book with Carol Stock Kranowitz's The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun, and you will never ever lack for fun, therapeutic, low-cost activities to do with your SI-dysfunction child!!!

As an occupational therapist, I love this book for the suggestions it provides to the very practical everyday difficulties parents face when their child has sensory integration issues. To me, the only downfall is that it refers to children with autism so much. I have used it with any child with sensory integration difficulties, but have had to create my own handouts based on the book to avoid offending parents whose children are clearly not autistic. It addresses things like brushing teeth, getting to and staying asleep, and problem behaviors like biting, hitting, and so much more.

As a physical education instructor, I've always got my eyes open to ideas for working with my kids that have PDD. This book gives ideas and activity suggestions that I can use modify our activities so that they can participate as well. It gave me a much better understanding of their needs.

I am a parent of a child with regulatory disorder. This book was very helpful to not only describe the theory of his behavior, but helpful strategies for our family and him. This is a must read for all teachers and physicans, also any family with a child sensitive to sensory stimuli.

This is great for professionals or for parents of children with PDD or Autism. It gives some fresh strategies for dealing with challenging situations and behaviors as well as arming one with more knowledge to better meet the needs of children with whom one works. As a friend of a mom that has a child with PDD, I know that this book has been useful for them. As one that is trying to figure this disorder out, I then read the book and it definitely gave me a greater understanding him and even ways that I can interact with him when we are together.

This book has several great lists of activities for kids with sensory integration deficits. Its a book you don't have to read cover to cover. Search the Table of Contents to which area your child is having difficulty and just read that portion of the book. I wish they wouldn't have added "Autism and PDD" to their title... it scares some parents away. Because not only are these activities/ideas great for children with Autism, but most kids with sensory integration deficits.
