Many kids have some form of SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder), but who can help them overcome their daily struggles? Wait . . . they can help themselves!

Lynda Farrington Wilson, along with Tyler and some delightful illustrations, help kids help themselves through daily life like no one has before with some great everyday tips and techniques.

Squirmy Wormy is a wonderful little children's book about a boy named Tyler, who has autism and SPD. Together with Tyler, the reader learns about SPD and what easy therapies he can do by himself to feel better. For instance: "I feel like running really fast, run run run! Maybe I just need a s-q-u-e-e-z-e between the couch cushions like a hot dog. Whew! I feel better."

Endorsed by Dr. Temple Grandin, this book is sure to help many children (who perhaps previously did not even know they had SPD) lead calmer, richer lives.
