This book is a godsend. A goldmine. And it's for you.
The book is behaviorally specific and is broken down by brief but descriptive behaviors (such as "rubs zippers on pillows" or "reacts to the smell of air fresheners"), approximately 200 of them, that one can look at and then read a short synopsis of why the behavior may or is likely happening followed by 4-8 suggestions on how the parent/ caretaker can help the child deal with that particular sensory signal. While the ideas to help really begin to repeat themselves they are still a great value and organized as a quick and beneficial reference tool. (Some of the ideas to help are as simple as reminding us that even if the behavior annoys us it can still be okay for them to do and help them emotionally regulate themselves.) And that's the book (there's the table of contents that is stylized as an index of behaviors). A lot of people that I know could benefit from this.
And while this is written primarily toward the parent this book is an excellent resource and should be found in nursery schools, Sunday schools, elementary schools, and other places where people have to have a lot of contact with kids. Dentist's office, children's ward in a hospital. You name it. And if you didn't know what words like "proprioceptive" and "vestibular" mean, you'll be increasing your vocabulary, so prepare yourself.
(The standard book offered is too overwhelming)
Sensory Signals' easy format and language is most welcome; e.g. Holds It Together At School-Melts Down At Home or
Does Not Tolerate Haircuts/ Nail Trimming, then gives neurological underpinning causing "sensory short circuit".
This book became our guide in concisely outlining behaviors, supporting the behaviors with neurological findings,
thusly creating a favorable bid for classroom support.
Forever grateful to the author for writing and Amazon for carrying. Invaluable!!!
Should be required to reading for all pediatricians, parents and educators and a staple in their professional libraries and waiting rooms.
