    Well organized, easy-to-read, & included helpful suggestions

    The other books on this disorder seem to spend the whole book trying to convince you of its existance. This is finally a practical guide on what you can do with your kid, his/her teachers, and how to work with your child's therapist to see improvements. I felt totally lost with my daughter until I started reading this book. I'd grazed or thoroughly read others, but this was the first where I didn't feel powerless.

    Very Informative

    This book is very informative. It was very easy to read and comprehend. The depth of information was valuable and practical especially if you have a child or work with children to better understand what they are feeling and dealing with. This was helpful in understanding some of my son's issues and how to get help for him along with helping others understand that we all have sensory issues but some kids need more help to deal with it.

    Ever wondered why your child covered their ears when you knew they didn't have an ear infection? Or wondered why they would spin around in circles for minutes on end? Or why they couldn't stand tags in their clothes when everything else seemed "normal?" This comprehensive book on sensory integration disorder offers explanations and ways for parents to recognize and manage SID in their children. 




    What I appreciated was how easy the book was to read. It broke down a tough to understand concept and made it simple to relate to. The definitions were clear and practical. 




    The disorder is characterized by the brain inaccurately processing information from the senses. The person afflicted then makes an inaccurate judgment regarding touch, sight, movement, taste, and sound. 




    The book helps readers understand how important the vestibular and proprioceptive sense are, explains hypersensitivity and hyposensitivity, along with the importance of motor planning and hypotonia (low muscle tone.)




    This book also helped me understand how my son got SID. The chapter on lookalike problems such as ADD, ADHD, OCD and behavioral issues was the most informative, and will assist me to better articulate to my child's teachers what to look for and how to approach my son. 




    I highly recommend this book to parents and teachers who interact with children that have SID. It is a gold mine of information written in such a way that it is easy to understand.
