The first part of the book is dedicated to recognizing sensory processing challenges. It's written for a therapists or professional, but speaks to parents as well, providing screening to use and many client examples. I found I was highlighting so many sections to reference that the entire section was yellow, meaning there is so much helpful information packed into the beginning.
If Sensory Processing Disorder is new to you, by the end of this section you will be completely comfortable talking about the five known senses as well as proprioception, vestibular and introceptive senses. You'll know triggers that may be setting your child off and then how to provide help for your child (or client).
Next she explores the strategies to work with clients. What I appreciated as a parent was seeing a bridge be built between therapists, including mental health professionals and occupational therapists. I can't even tell you how many hours I have spent trying to get the professionals working with my child onto the same page. What a welcomed revelation to have therapists take it upon themselves and know how to help children from more than one angle and by working together.
Lindsey Biel lays out exactly how a mental health professional could incorporate sensory integration strategies into their practice. It's brilliant and reads very simple due to her concise breakdowns, with many, many ways to sooth clients so that they can work on their mental health without the sensory disruptions.
Her chapter on Empowering Strategies for Parents is beyond helpful, arming the professional with tips and tools for parents, using many of her case examples, and enabling parents to decipher between forcing their children into uncomfortable sensory situations versus protecting too much. She gives compassionate advice to the parents without ever being judgmental or condescending, which is greatly appreciated. There is so much applicable information provided that I'm breaking it into a monthly program to trying new ideas with my son.
She also covers working with the schools and helping the clients to empower themselves by taking control of their sensory environment. It's a one-stop-shop complete book that reaching into all aspects of your child's life. It is definitely a book I'd like my child's psychologist to read as well as his teachers. When we can all work together on a child's sensory system, it can make the most impact.
Please ask me any questions about the book if I missed anything in my review. Kindest regards.
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.
