About the Author

Hartley Steiner lives in the Seattle area with her three sons, two of which are on the spectrum. Hartley is the award winning author of the SPD Children’s book This is Gabriel Making Sense of School, a contributing writer for the SPD Foundation's blog, S.I. Focus Magazine and Autism Spectrum Quarterly.  Hartley chronicles the never ending chaos that is her life on the blog Hartley’s Life With 3 Boys. When she isn’t writing, or dealing with a meltdown, she enjoys spending time in the company of other adults preferably with good food and even better wine.

Foreword writer, Dr. Lucy Jane Miller's name is synonymous with sensory research, education, and treatment.  She is the founder of the first comprehensive SPD research program and author of the groundbreaking books Sensational Kids and No Longer A SECRET.  Thanks specifically to Dr. Miller's mobilization of the research community, SPD now appears in two diagnostic manuals and her application has led to consideration of SPD for inclusion in the 2013 revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-V). Dr. Miller has also developed seven nationally standardized tests for use worldwide to assess and diagnose SPD and other developmental disorders and delays.

She has been featured on NBC's Today Show and ABC's 20/20, in The New York Times and numerous other popular and professional publications. She is the author of more than sixty articles and/or chapters in scientific and professional journals, magazines, and textbooks and is a frequent presenter or speaker at conferences and workshops worldwide.

In 2004, Dr. Miller received the Award of Merit from the American Occupational Therapy Association, the profession's highest honor, reserved for those therapists who have made an outstanding global contribution to the field. In 2005, she was awarded the Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian award.
