From the Author
Although my pediatrician finally agreed to order atest to see why my son wasn't hitting his language milestones, it was a mom onlinewho told me not to wait--to get a multidisciplinary evaluation through mystate's early intervention program. That's how I came to meet my coauthor,Lindsey Biel, OTR/L, the occupational therapist assigned to help my son withfine motor delays (Why did he need to know how to hold a crayon already? I asked)and something they were calling sensory processing issues (What on earth did wasthat? I wondered).
Lindsey, as it turns out, not only had expertiseand experience in treating sensory processing issues: She also had anincredible rapport with kids and with parents. And she knew how to explain whysensory processing issues were involved in my son's unusual behaviors and hisdevelopmental delays. I urged her to help me write the book I needed to readand she wanted to be able to recommend to her clients and to other OTs andprofessionals trying to figure out how to help kids with this common conditionthat affects as many as 1 in 10 children.
That was a decade ago. Since then, Raising aSensory Smart Child: The Definitive Handbook for Helping Your Child withSensory Processing Issues, received a foreword from Temple Grandin, won two bookawards, went into multiple printings, was updated and expanded, and has developed a following of people who want not just theory butanswers to how to help these marvelous kids. Lindsey and I hope you will findthe book extremely helpful in developing sensory smarts, our term forunderstanding, honoring, and effectively advocating for sensory needs. It ischock full of practical information from tips on toothbrushing to strategiesfor managing bedtime routines to advice on advocating for your child at schooland working with an occupational therapist who treats sensory issues. You'lllearn about complementary therapies as well as helpful resources and items youcan use as part of a sensory diet of activities designed to foster your child'sability to meet sensory needs and remain regulated in terms of focus, energy,and mood. And perhaps most importantly, you will discover that you are notalone, that your sensory kid is the same marvelous child he or she was beforeyou learned about sensory issues. It's just that once you've read our book, youwill know better what you can do to support your child's learning andfunctioning at home, at school, and away.
