I am a Pediatric Developmental Therapist and a mom. One of my children has Sensory Integration issues and I was looking for a way to help explain those issues to his preschool teacher. I feel this book is most appropriate for teachers who are looking to identify kids who they think have sensory problems. Over half the book is checklists for teachers. I wanted more explanation on what SID is and how to help children. Isn't that basically what we need? For people to understand what SID is and how to help the children impacted by it to function, learn and grow to the best of their ability. I also felt there was a lack of suggestions on how to get "optimal learning" from kids with SID. Most of the suggestions were geared towards older kids - "help the janitor," "carry copy paper from the storage closet to the office." Most 4 year-olds I know have a hard time doing those activities without supervision. There was some explanation about SID and some in-classroom exercises. It was just OK.

Gave this book to my son's teacher. She was thrilled. It's full of tools to help her help her SPD (sensory processing disorder) students. With all that she is required to fit into a school day, she can't afford to lose time on a daily basis having to deal with my child or any other, reaching meltdown (sensory overload). With the checklists, both parents and teacher can be aware of a student's sensory problem areas, so they can be addressed. It's amazing that a student's being able to chew on something like a special necklace, or allowing them to do a few pushups can help their brain organize so they can be able to think, or listen, or comprehend, at the level of a "sensory normal" person. The acommodations are often inexpensive and not disruptive to the rest of the class; and they make all the difference to a student with SPD.

As an occupational therapist, it was a wonderful resource to share with the teachers and directors that I work with in schools. They talked about how they developed a better understanding of "odd" behaviors that they saw in class. They also liked the checklists.

I'm the parent of a child with Sensory Processing Disorder who's about the enter preschool. I bought this book mostly on a whim, but was so pleased with it I immediately shared it with the director of his (soon to be) school. She was very happy and felt it will be a valuable resource for her staff.

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.

When my sons ages 6 and 5 were diagnosed with sensory integration disorder I had no idea what in the world that was, or what it meant for my boys. Enter this handy book that answered so many of my questions. The lists and tips given are easy to understand-written for "real people" not those with doctorates in educational theory :)I have gone to this book again and again since purchasing it. If your child, or children you know or work with, has been diagnosed with sensory processing problems, this guide is a definitive answer for you! You can quickly and easily identify problem areas. I highly recommend this guide for those asking questions that seemingly have no answers.

Although I am a certified special education teacher, the area of sensory integration is one that I was very unfamiliar with. My special ed schooling contained little information on this very important area for learning disabled children. It was a real eye-opener to realize WHY my 5-7 year old children exhibit the behaviors they do. I now understand why they are always falling out of their seats, dropping their crayons, have poor motor control or have difficulty putting on their jackets. The best part is that not only does the book help you identify these behaviors, it provides practical strategies that can easily be incorporated into daily classroom routines. Nice resource to have.

Just a list of possible sensory behaviors. I bought this to share with my sons teachers, but I ended up not doing so because it didn't really capture his main issues at all. My son has mild ASD, gravitational insecurity, low tone, gross motor delays, poor body awareness, poor upper limb coordination, difficulties with attention and self regulation, hyperactivity, and motor planning difficulties. Reading over these checklists my son doesn't seem to fit anywhere. The book is also very thin. A very poor value even if it did have useful info. My sons teachers already had to fill out some of the standard forms from his OT as part of the assessments and he came up with tons of probable and definite differences. They can see the differences. I was looking for a book to actually answer the teachers questions about him and how she could help him, this was not that book.
