Generally, the book that is most recommended is The Out of Sync Child, which is a wonderful book. However, the Out of Sync Child is geared more toward SPD kids with more severe disorders (autism, Asperger's Disorders, etc). Raising a Sensory Smart Child is a perfect reference for children with SPD without accompanying disorders. It provides answers and guidance for for families who have been wondering "what's wrong" for a long time. I'd recommend this book not only for parents, but for teachers, therapists, as well as grandparents, daycare providers and anyone dealing with SPD kids. Truly an educational read.
Quite simply if you have or teach any child with Special Needs, not just SI, buy this book.
The book is comprehensive with in depth theoretical knowledge plus plenty of strategies that are practical and easily implemented at home and / or school. Well referenced and researched contains chapters dealing with alternative therapies ...be warned these authors say some of them don't come up to scratch, based on research and I agree. This is the only book you will need in regards to OT and SI and you might save a lot of money designing your own programme.
