The Everything Parent's Guide to Sensory Integration Disorder: Get the Right Diagnosis, Understand Treatments, and Advocate for Your Child(Paperback)
By Terri Mauro. Edited by Sharon A. Cermak

Sensory Integration Disorder - also known as Sensory Processing Disorder - is characterised by the inability of the brain to accurately process information coming from the senses.

For children living with Sensory Integration Disorder, the world can be a scary place, full of potentially stressful experiences.

Children with Sensory Integration Disorder can howl in discomfort over the feel of a shirt tag or a sock seam on bare skin. They may find the sound of a whisper to be as loud and frightening as a siren, and may perceive the caring touch of a parent or jostling in the school lunch line as equivalent to an assault.

The Everything Parent's Guide to Sensory Integration Disorder :
  • Provides an in-depth definition of Sensory Integration Disorder and explains its effects
  • Highlights occupational therapy treatments and explains techniques you can use outside of the therapist's office to calm your child
  • Includes helpful advice for parents teaching their children how to deal with this disorder at school, home, and play, from childhood through adulthood
In The Everything Parent's Guide to Sensory Integration Disorder, you'll find the answers you need as you search for ways to help your child. This reassuring handbook examines various forms of treatment and therapy, and provides professional advice for helping children with SID succeed in school, at home, and with friends.
