The book is essentially organized into lists, which makes it simple to share individual sections that apply to your particular child. The language is straightforward (no medical jargon) and geared specifically toward things a teacher may see in the classroom.
If your child has sensory integration issues and you're not sure how to open a conversation with their teacher, this book is a great starting point. There are so many sensory-induced involuntary behaviors our kids can exhibit that may look like bad behavior in a classroom setting. This book can help a teacher understand the real medical reason behind what's going on, which ideally can change their role from blind disciplinarian to supportive advocate.
