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.

If you are looking for a broad overview of sensory processing, this is a great book to start with.

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.

This book is very benificial and eye opening. I could see my child through out it. Not only does it show what is happening with your child and why but how to help your child with it. We have tried several techniques to help our son's sensory issues. The best has been the downward brushing with a soft brush. It calms my Aspergers Teen instantly. Our Autisim teacher also told us about this. We bought a soft brush at walgreens (.69 cents). I went back and bought one for all of the vehicles and my purse and for his own sensory kit. This book has helped our family a lot!

I am so thankful for this book. It helped me realize I am not a terrible parent, and my son is not a terrible child. It answers questions simply, gives lots of examples and comparisons, and should be in the hands of every teacher of young children!

What a wonderful resouce for parents of a child that they just don't really understand. It is very helpful to know that you are not alone and you are not crazy!! This has helped me become more prepared to help my daughter.

This book helped so much in understanding my son. He had frequent temper tantrums, avoided eye contact, and had speech and developmental delays.Every parent, teacher, and caregiver should read this, chances are you know a child that will fit this criteria.

A more medically oriented, less hands-on approach to sensory defensiveness, but more oriented towards unofficially diagnosing the level of the problem than are other books related. Encyclopedic References, and suggestions in dealing with medical professionals.

This book does what it is supposed to. I learned just enough from it to, I think, prevent one of our children from becoming a child with true sensory issues. Since we home school I am with our chlidren all the time and can continually work on and evaluate such things.
