Part I includes the basics about Sensory Processing Disorder (background, symptoms and warning signs, assessment and diagnosis, treatment and strategies). Part II - Living with Sensational Kids is our opportunity to read about "a day in the life of" children with a Sensory Processing Disorder. In this section, Lucy introduces 5 case studies (typically developing child and four young children who each have a different Sensory Processing Disorder -- over-responsive, under-responsive, sensory-seeking, and dyspraxia). The section continues with these same children at an older age. Part III goes beyond the basics and includes the science of SPD, combination disorders, causes and prevalence, intervention methods and treatment effectiveness, and a personal message to parents.
This book could have been called "Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sensory Processing Disorder but were Afraid to Ask." Not only is it informative, but it's very easy to read. I highly recommend the book.
"The dismissive doctor had probably been talking about the neurological process of sensory integration at the cellular level?not Rachel's distressing behaviors?but Cindy had no way of knowing that".
It can be pretty distracting and occurs disturbingly often. I'm torn as to whether the convenience of having it on my Kindle is worth dealing with all of these errors or whether I'd rather have the print version.
