Overview

When Kids Fly!: Solutions for Children with Sensory Integration Challenges by Sally Fryer Dietz

Filled with insights from the author Sally Fryer Dietz's years of physical and sensory integration therapy that you can take from the school to your home, When Kids Fly is written in a conversational tone that makes it perfect for parents, friends, teachers, and medical professionals, alike.

Starting from the moment that Dietz realized that something "wasn't quite right" with her son, and allowing us to follow them (and others) through to his adulthood, this one-of-a-kind book ties the practical to both the professional and the personal.

When Kids Fly can help you figure out when to worry about your child's development, when not to worry, and what options are available—no matter where your child falls on the spectrum of sensory motor integration. It is a wonderful resource for those who really want to help children discover their wings as they grow towards maturity and learn to fly on their own.

Sales Handle: A resource book told as only a mother—and therapist—can do.

Author Sally Fryer Dietz, Founder and Director of Integrative Pediatric Therapy, is a physical therapist, developmental specialist, sensory integration expert, child advocate, and mother. As a leading authority in therapeutic pediatrics—and the mother of two boys who learned in entirely different ways—she has helped thousands of children (and their parents) live healthier, happier lives. She has taught internationally and has received worldwide media attention for the innovative therapy methods she brings to life in 'When Kids Fly'. Born in Berkley, California, Sally now lives in Dallas, Texas, with her husband, Mark Dietz.
