    Highly recommend this book for parents of children with Asperger's

    This book is so helpful; not only for parents, but also for all teachers. It explains locations and functions of the sensory systems; not JUST the 5 basic senses, but also balance and body awareness. There are also charts and checklists, to quickly reference various problems with possible interventions. This book is well written, but easy to follow and understand. You do not need to have a neurology or psychology degree to be able to use the information presented. I'm going to get a copy of this book for my 7 year old son's school for reference as well.
