A MUST read for parents/teachers/therapist or anyone who is close to a child with behavioral problems.This was recommended to me by my grandson's speech therapist and has become a valuable tool for me in understanding and helping him. (I have custody of him) It explains so much I've questioned and really helps me see the world through his precious little eyes. I also recommend and bought The Out of Sync Child has Fun which will also be a big help. After my purchase I found out the Occupational Therapists use this as a handbook and felt foolish that I hadn't already purchased and read it! NOW I know! (It's not really entertainment so I didn't rate it on that value but I would also give it 5 stars for reassurance and encouragement!)
I purchased this book and "The Out of Sync Child", from the recommendation of and OT evaluator for my son. Both books are excellent for a parent of an Autistic child or a child with Sensory Intergration disorder. It explains the disorder in a way easily understood. The child has fun book , gives tons of ideas to use with the children.
This book is the companion book for The Out of Sync Child. The exercises and activities are great. My daughter loves to "play" using all the suggestions and it is also of great benefit to my son. I highly recommend to purchase both of the books together.
