By Gavin Bollard on March 2, 2010
Format: Paperback
It's not often that I see a book which sits so comfortably across several age groups and brings useful and different information to each. Squirmy Wormy is such a book.

Squirmy Wormy is, at first glance, a picture book which deals with Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder.

The "story" itself is a mere 18 pages, so it's a quick and easy read but don't let that deceive you. Beneath its storybook exterior, Squirmy Wormy provides a wealth of explanations and tips. It's a book that you and your children will be going back to, time and time again.

Suitability for Young Readers
Young readers will find Squirmy Wormy easy to read because there's only about five lines of new text on each page plus a little repetition of sound-words. None of the words are particularly difficult, making it a great book for good-reading children as young as kindergarten.

If your child is a slower reader, the book is still good reading at grades three and four. It's also a great book for reading aloud. In fact, it's the sound words like "flappy, flappy, pinchy, pinchy, hit, hit, hit" which make it a particular joy to read to an audience.

A Book with a Difference
What makes Squirmy Wormy so different from your average picture book though is that apart from having a generally non-linear story from which you can simply read one or two relevant pages without having to re-read the entire story, it offers a great deal of advice for parents but more importantly, for children.

One of the main aims of this book is to encourage children to help themselves.

Taking a child's point of view, it's easy to see the advice for given situations.

This book was suggested by another parent of special needs children but I have found it to be extremely helpful in understanding our child. Our child is a product of meth and therefore is unique and cannot fit into a box. Squirmy Wormy explains how she feels and why. My child is exhibiting alot of the sensory deficits explained in this book and the book makes it sound so simple. Thank you for a great book for parents and educators as well.

I couldn't believe what I read! It helped me understand my son's sensory disorder better and when he's a little older it will be his guide! My daughter will be able to understand what brother is going through when she's older and my husband loved it too! It's a must-have for any parent or relative. An absolutely, positively AWESOME book!

I bought this hopeing to teach all of the kids on my case load how to learn how to help themselves!
While it is good for doing this, I wish I had known it was more geared toward Autism and Autistic Kids who also have SPD, not just about SPD. (Ex: on the first page it stated "My name is Tyler, I have Autism and SPD")
So a good book in all, just not what I was hoping for...

I read this to my students who have similar sensory issues and they really seemed to enjoy it. It gave me a chance to begin a conversation/lesson on what are some things we can do to help control the students' impulsive behaviors. The book even gave suggestions on what to use and website to find out more information on sensory issues or to purchase products.

My youngest son who is 2 years old was dignosed with Sensory Intergration Disorder. I bought the Squirmy Wormy: How I Learned to Help Myself on a reccomendation of his Infant Development Specialist who stated that would help me to explan my son's condition to my older children and other family members. Let me just say this was a great buy for us! I am better able to assist my son with his Sensory Intergration Disorder and my older children have a better sense as to what is going on as well.

Not such a happy teacher. The story is cute and does a good job explaining why some children behave the way that they do, to other children. However, even at Amazon's discounted price it is still grossly overpriced for what it is. Again this is when not being able to see and hold and examine a book before purchasing it, is a disadvantage .

Excellent book. I thought it would be good for me to read to my grandson with autism but it's not appropriate for him. It is ideal for grown ups to read to enlighten them as to what he goes through as a child on the spectrum. I hope to find similar books.
