Format: Paperback
The wonderful thing about this book is that it can help children with SPD understand their condition as well as help siblings, classmates, family members, and teachers understand how difficult it is to live with SPD. Ms. Laird has first-hand knowledge of the difficulties children with SPD face, and she treats this subject with love and respect. I would recommend this book to anyone who has SPD in their lives.

Format: Paperback
When I read Chynna Laird's picture book, "I'm Not Weird, I Have SPD", I almost cried. Not because the story of a child struggling with severe sensory disorder is so sad, but because the frustration shared by child and family alike before diagnosis is so heart-wrenching. Once it becomes clear that SPD is the problem, Ms. Laird gives an excellent view inside the difficult world of living with SPD. The author tells, in a simple story, how one little girl and her family cope with this devastating disorder. In the end, Ms. Laird leaves the reader with a moment of joy and a real hope for a brighter tomorrow!

This book is a must read for any parent who has a child suffering with Sensory Processing Disorder. It also helps your child put words to what they are feeling on a daily basis. Teachers and other professionals working with children who have SPD also come to a better understanding of how to help these children.

Before reading the book, I had no idea what SPD was. I am glad that I read this book.
Alexandra tells us how things have been from her point of view from birth until now when she is 4 years old. Because she is more sensitive to things that involve her senses, it causes her to react in ways that may seem different to others. Hugs from her parents hurt, things that smell good to her makes her sick and she is really sensitive to light.

As a baby, Alexandra could do nothing more than scream. When Alexandra's parents found out she had SPD they could then work on providing an environment that was more comfortable for their daughter. The book allow us to understand Sensory Processing Disorder and what it is like to both live with the disease and also how it affects those involved in the life of someone with SPD. Being that SPD is not a disease that is in the for front, this was a great book.
