This book opened the door to my understanding of Sensory Processing Disorder and has given me the tools to understand and advocate for my own sensory sensitive child. I have bought copies for other family members as well. I now understand the basic underlying reasons why my child reacts to certain situations the way that she does, and have gained tremmendous patience with this new understanding and have taught others to understand her triggers and needs better. It has made for better family dinners and play dates overall. We still have a way to go, but we are making progress.

Read 'Raising a Sensory Smart Child' instead

This book may be useful for families with older children with SPD but for those of us with infants, toddlers, or pre-schoolers with the disorder 'Raising a Sensory Smart Child' is a lot more meaningful and a much easier read.

    Depressing Book

    As parents of an SI child, we found this book totally depressing. The message of the book seems to be that your child likely will never have anything resembling a normal life so prepare for battle. It was very emotionally deflating. The book was recommended to us by a number of people and we read 'glowing' on-line reviews. Therefore, we were shocked by the content of the book, which we feel simplifies the disorder (the examples are very stereotypical and most people we have spoken to felt that the examples never 'fit' their child and consequently the pat recommendations don't work either) and presents the disorder and hope for children with the disorder in a very negative way. We have since spoken with many parents who feel the same way after reading this book which, in our opinion, is over-recommended. Most people seem to treat this book as a panacea when it fact it can take years of complicated inter-related therapies to help an SI child. Reading this book won't do it.
