Sensory Processing Challenges Effective Clinical Work with Kids Teens Book Excerpt:

Equipping clinicians with “sensory smarts” to treat their child clients. 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.

The Sensory Processing Diet Book Excerpt:

As a mom of a newly diagnosed child with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), I relentlessly sought experts in SPD, as well as top nutritionists, biopsychologists, and neurologists. I figured that if I understood the major functions of the brain, and how it's supposed to take in, process and respond to stimulation, I could discover how SPD interferes with these functions. Understanding the whole picture - the combination of body, brain and nutritional health - led me to embrace the "Sensory Diet." In this book, I share the keys of a well-balanced nutritional diet and the activities and exercises that truly work. Use the resources in this book to create a whole picture of your own child's conditions and customize a Sensory Diet for him/her. "If you're the parent, teacher, relative or friend of a sensory kid, The Sensory Processing Diet will give you unique insight into his or her world. Reading it was a breath of fresh air, as I could relate to so many of her parenting struggles and found her recommended interventions to be both doable and helpful." --CAMERON KLEIMO, sensory mom "Chynna Laird has written a sensational book about a little known disorder, but one that is becoming increasingly more identified in children. As a child psychologist, I found the book to be interesting, informative and complete. I recommend it highly to parents and professionals. I loved it." --LAURIE ZELINGER, PhD, ABPP, RPT-S, board certified psychologist, author of Please Explain "Anxiety" to Me "I work with many children in play therapy that also experience sensory issues. The Sensory Diet gives an in-depth look at contributors to SPD, what types of treatments are available and adjustments families can make so that a child with SPD can cope in life in a way that he/she hasn't understood before. I wholeheartedly recommend it to therapists and parents." --JILL OSBORNE, EDS, LPC, CPCS, RPTS, author of Sam Feels Better Now! CHYNNA LAIRD – is a mother of four, a freelance writer, blogger, editor and award-winning author. Her passion is helping children and families living with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), mental and/or emotional struggles and other special needs. She's authored two children's books, two memoirs, a parent-to-parent resource book, a Young Adult novella, a Young Adult paranormal/suspense novel series, two New Adult contemporary novels and an adult suspense/thriller.

Sensory Processing Disorder Book Excerpt:

This is a ground breaking book that explain Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and presents a drug-free approach that provides expect parents. Sensory processing disorder is when the brain has trouble getting and giving an answer to information that comes in through the senses. Formerly known as Sensory Integration Dysfunction, it isn't currently named a definite medical diagnosis. Over-responsivity or under-responsivity to touch or movement? A kid with SPD could be a "sensory avoider," withdrawing from touch, refusing to wear certain clothing, avoiding active games or he might be considered a "sensory disregarder," needing a jump start to get moving. Over-responsivity or under-responsivity to sounds, sights taste, or smell? She may cover her ears or eyes, be considered a picky eater, or seem oblivious to sensory cues. Cravings for sensation? The "sensory craver" never gets enough of certain sensations, e.g., messy fun, spicy food, noisy action, and perpetual movement. Poor sensory discrimination? She might not sense the difference between objects or experiences - unaware of what she's holding unless she looks and struggling to sense when she's falling or how exactly to catch herself. Unusually high or low activity level? The kid could be constantly on the go - wearing out everyone around him or move slowly and get tired easily, showing little desire for the world. Issues with posture or motion coordination? He might slouch, move awkwardly, and seem careless or accident-prone. These are usually the first hints to Sensory Processing Disorder - a common but frequently misdiagnosed problem where the central nervous system misinterprets messages from your senses. Some individuals with sensory processing disorder are oversensitive to things in their environment. Everyday noises or mind-boggling may hurt. The light touch of the t-shirt may chafe their skin. Others with sensory processing disorder may: Be uncoordinated. Bump into things. Be hard to respond or react during play. Sensory processing problems are usually recognized in children. However, they can also affect adults. Sensory Processing Disorders are generally observed in developmental conditions like autism spectrum disorder. Sensory processing disorder is not just named a stand-alone disorder. Many experts believe that should change. This book offers comprehensive, clear information for parents and professionals--and a drug-free remedy approach for children.
