A Week-by-Week Guide to Solving Everyday Sensory Issues

by Rondalyn V. Whitney Ph.D., OTR/L; and Varleisha D. Gibbs OTD, OTR/L
Whether it’s having to remove tags from clothing or using special dimmed lighting when they study, kids with sensory disorders or special sensory needs often need adaptations in their everyday lives in order to find success in school and beyond. Taking a look at the most common sensory issues kids face, Raising Kids With Sensory Processing Disorders offers a compilation of unique, proven strategies that parents can implement to help their children move beyond their sensory needs and increase their performance on tasks like homework, field trips, transitions between activities, bedtime, holidays, and interactions with friends. Written by parents and occupational therapists, the book shows parents how to characterize their child’s sensory issues into one of several profiles that they can then use to find the best adaptations and changes to their everyday routines.
