Hello friends! We have exciting news to share! Our new book, Sensory Processing 101, is on its way and will be available on September 15th! We’ve been working hard over the past year and a half with our friend, Dayna from Lemon Lime Adventures, to create an awesome guide to sensory processing that addresses the topic from the perspectives of a parent and educator and pediatric therapists.
Whether you are a parent, educator, caregiver, or therapist, this easy-to-read guide is your starting point to gain a better understanding of sensory processing and the body’s sensory systems.
Dayna is a teacher and the mom of a little guy with Sensory Processing Disorder. We combined our years of experience and training as therapists with Dayna’s insight as a teacher, along with her experiences with learning about her own son’s sensory needs, to create Sensory Processing 101.
Our hope is to use the book to educate everyone about sensory processing – parents, teachers, caregivers, school administrators, and more! We believe that understanding how children’s sensory systems work is the key to unlocking some of their challenging behaviors. ALL kids have sensory preferences and needs. When we understand the basics of sensory processing, we are more tuned into kids’ basic needs and can use simple strategies to address them at home and in the classroom.
This is where Sensory Processing 101 comes in.
The comprehensive, full-color book contains 3 books in 1:
-Sensory Processing Explained: An explanation of each sensory system from a therapist’s point of view and from the perspective of a parent and educator
-Sensory Activities: Step-by-step instructions for activities you can use in everyday play with kids at home or at school to support the development of each sensory system
-Sensory Resources: Resources related to sensory processing, including support groups for parents and caregivers of children who have sensory needs, cheat sheets with quick overviews of each sensory system, and more
We are also really excited about the color coded index by behavior, where you can pair any troubling sensory behavior with helpful resources in the book!
Take a sneak peek here:
Carol Stock Kranowitz, author of The Out-of-Sync Child, calls Sensory Processing 101 “a practical, reassuring, visually appealing, lovely book! Not just an excellent introductory ‘101’ course on SPD, this is also an ‘All-in-One’ resource book, with its engaging activities and reproducible review pages to slip in your pocket and share with others who care for children with sensory challenges.”
We can’t wait to make the book available to you starting on September 15th!
