The author in this precious document provides with a live and objective manner all known areas of the Sensory Processing Disorder for parents and family to understand and better assess the opportunities for support and growth for kids and adults having any of this characteristics. I believe every parent could benefit from this book, during the early stages of having a new baby coming to their family circle. Being informed and prepared to identify promptly, one or several of the SPD characteristics becomes a precious asset even if the early advise can be shared in support of other non-informed parents, friends or relatives. To the author, my deep respect and recognition about her life commitment to transform her early vision experience and learnings into a profound resource of knowledge available for other to lean on and apply from her wisdom.

We had reason to believe from early on that our youngest had sensory issues, so I did a lot of shopping on ParentsDigest in hopes of finding a book that explained the issues, as well as offering me hope when we were so shocked with the possible effects of sensory processing disorder. This book offers both information, and hope.
