Reviews

Many people focus on the "difficulties" in sensory processing difficulties. This book provides a more positive approach to what is, after all, just another way of perceiving the world. As Harry, one of the characters in the story, says, "...there are ways that I can make everyday life easier and more fun." With his sister, Anna, who also has sensory processing difficulties, they describe the challenges they face and how they manage them. -- Dr Greg Kelly, Course Director for the Postgraduate Certificate/Diploma/MSc in Sensory Integration, Ulster University
Sue Allen's book will be an invaluable resource for children with sensory processing difficulties and for the adults who support them. Concepts are explained using day-to-day examples that children will easily relate to, and the book is full of practical ideas to try. Most importantly, the book offers a positive picture of living with SPD and will help to demystify this condition for both children and adults. -- Dr Fiona Knott, Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology, University of Reading
This simple book will provide some relief - the relief that comes with understanding. At last, this difficulty has a name, and I can have a bit of insight into what is going through my child's mind when they respond in some of these ways. Sue Allen has written the perfect primer on this condition. It is a great stepping stone for all of us to be better positioned to help our children. -- Jamie O'Connor, homeschooling mother of 5
This small book shares a wealth of knowledge and insight developed over the past 50 years by therapists in the field of sensory integration. Sensory processing difficulties are explained from the child's point of view using everyday language, and each page is packed with practical and effective strategies for improving daily life. Information is presented in a child-friendly format, complemented by additional material for parents and teachers. International resources are provided for those who want to go deeper. Strongly recommended! -- Diane Parham, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Professor at the University of New Mexico, Occupational Therapy Graduate Program
