Abstract:

Imagine that you are a parent of a child with no visible disability, but whose experiences of everyday life present constant challenges. What may be typical activities for most people are a struggle, often resulting in social, emotional, and academic problems. Sensory Processing Disorder, a complex brain disorder, affects one in twenty children. They experience sensations--taste, touch, sound, sight, smell, movement and body awareness--vastly differently from others. They may feel attacked by the slightest touch, fail to register bumps and bruises, or be unable to figure out where they are in space without constantly touching others. While SPD is more widely recognized than it once was, parents of these children search for ways to help them navigate in the world. Dr. Miller identifies the disorder and its four major subtypes, provides insight into assessment and diagnosis, and suggests treatment options and strategies, including the importance of occupational therapy and parental involvement.--From publisher description.
