About this item

In a book likely to transform how parents manage many of their child's daily struggles, Drs. Smith and Gouze explain the central and frequently unrecognized role that sensory processing problems play in a child's emotional and behavioral difficulties. Practicing child psychologists, and themselves parents of children with sensory integration problems, their message is innovative, practical, and, above all, full of hope.

A child with sensory processing problems overreacts or underreacts to sensory experiences most of us take in stride. A busy classroom, new clothes, food smells, sports activities, even hugs can send such a child spinning out of control. The result can be heartbreaking: battles over dressing, bathing, schoolwork, social functions, holidays, and countless other events. In addition, the authors say, many childhood psychiatric disorders may have an unidentified sensory component.

Readers Will Learn:

  • The latest scientific knowledge about sensory integration
  • How to recognize sensory processing problems in children and evaluate the options for treatment
  • How to prevent conflicts by viewing the child's world through a "sensory lens"
  • Strategies for handling sensory integration challenges at home, at school, and in twenty-first century kid culture

The result: a happier childhood, a more harmonious family, and a more cooperative classroom. This thoroughly researched, useful, and compassionate guide will help families start on a new path of empowerment and success.

A guide for parents of children with sensory processing difficulties cites a link between sensory processing problems and numerous childhood psychiatric disorders, sharing step-by-step information on how to recognize and treat sensory-related conditions. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
