If you’re new to sensory processing disorder, also known as sensory integration dysfunction, or plain old “sensory issues,” you can learn the basics at the website for the book Raising a Sensory Smart Child: The Definitive Handbook for Helping Your Child with sensory processing issues: www.sensorysmarts.com
The book, written by a mom (me!) and an OT (Lindsey Biel), has a foreword from Temple Grandin, has won two major awards (iParenting and NAPPA), garnered rave reviews from Larry Silvers, M.D. and Mary Sheedy Kurcinka among others, and was recently updated and expanded with a new chapter on autism and sensory issues as well as more practical tips for families and for teenagers.
