Book Description

14 Feb 2014 Norton Professional Book
Many children and teens suffer from sensory challenges, meaning that they have unusual reactions to certain sensory experiences that most of us find commonplace. These challenges can range from moderate to severe--from an aversion to bright lights or the feel of anything remotely abrasive, to stopping short in panic every time a loud noise or siren is heard, or having an oral tactile sensitivity that prevents normal feeling in the mouth and hinders feeding. Accompanying these sensory issues--the full-blown version of which is called "sensory processing disorder" (SPD)--can be a range of behavioral problems like OCD and anxiety, and more severely, Asperger's and autism.This book equips clinicians with all the information they need to know to accurately identify sensory sensitivities in their child clients: how to pay attention to sensory issues and recognize when a client is struggling; how these issues factor into the behavioral problems at hand; and how best to partner with the right professionals to help kids at home and in school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Guide for Parents & Professionals 9 Feb 2014
By speech therapist and mom - Published on
As a pediatric therapist, I am always searching for straight forward, practical information to share with parents and other professionals. Lindsey Biel has created just that: A well organized book that is packed with her wealth of knowledge, yet not overwhelming to anyone searching for concrete information on sensory processing challenges. I'll be sharing this resource with teachers, clinicians and parents of kids with even the mildest sensory issues because it helps all of us to understand how to support all children at home, school and in our communities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource 24 Mar 2014
By Neil Rudofsky - Published on
As a practicing pediatric occupational therapist working with children with significant sensory processing challenges, I have been recommending the book "Raising A Sensory Smart Child" to parents and professionals for years. I am so delighted with Lindsey's new book which expands the world of sensory processing to include older children and teens, and more evidence based practice. In addition to being a wonderful resource to parents and teachers, her new book "Sensory Processing Challenges" helps explain some behaviors seen by other related professionals, particularly those in the mental health arena. Lindsey's work continues to encourages all of us to think outside of the box! I am happy to include this book in my "tool box".

5.0 out of 5 stars Necessary to understanding why people act the way they do, and how to help them. 21 Mar 2014
By Chantal Sicilekira - Published on
I loved Lindsey's first book, and this one is even better for educators, clinicians, support staff, anyone who works with children, teens, adults with autism. Great for parents as well; there is even is a section on Empowering Strategies for Parents.

In my travels around the US to give presentations on autism, I am surprised by the number of educators and parents who still have not had the opportunity to learn about the connection between sensory processing and a person's ability to learn, communicate and do just about anything that most of us take for granted. This book connects the dots.

Lindsey not only explains in plain language what sensory processing is all about, she provides real life examples provided by people on the spectrum who share their experiences with the reader. Filled with practical strategies, tips and explanations, this book is a must read for truly understanding what life is like for someone with sensory processing challenges, and how we can all make life livable - and more enjoyable - for them. Kudos and thanks to Lindsey for writing this extremely helpful book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you for the amazing resource!!! 26 Aug 2014
By LCN - Published on
As a new pediatric occupational therapist, I am continuously searching for resources that can help enhance my skills. After reading Lindsey Biel's first book "Raising a Sensory Smart Child" and loving it in graduate school, I knew I had to get my hands on her most recent book. As predicted, I was not disappointed. "Sensory Processing Challenges: Effective Clinical Work with Kids and Teens" is a great guide for any therapist, professional or caregiver that work with children/teens with sensory processing issues. I have developed a better understanding of how sensory processing works and all its intricate details through Lindsey Biel's explanations and examples. Also the many strategies that are provided in this book are very practical and help me day to day during my treatment sessions. Above all else, this book was very enjoyable to read. I take this book everywhere I go to refer to it, it is a must read!

This book is another wonderful useful tool for both parents and professionals.
With interesting case histories, the reader is transported to a place were she can feel right along with the "Sensory Challenged"
This book is a must read for Medical Professionals as well as Educators. Once again Lindsey sheds light and understanding on an too often misunderstood topic.
It is written from a foundation of neuroscience paired with compassion and understanding.
The convergence of the intellect and the heart.
