Book Review on Sensory Books

By Jill Ridder

What is Sensory Processing Disorder? Does your child have symptoms of Sensory Processing Disorder? How can I help my child?

The book, The Out-of-Sync Child, Recognizing and Coping with Sensory Processing Disorder by Carol Stock Kranowitz, is an easy to understand and helpful tool for parents and non-professionals about identifying and treating sensory processing disorder. This resource gives concrete information, checklists, and examples of typical indicators that may signal that a sensory processing disorder may be present. The book concludes with a list of exercises, activities, and resources that a parent or therapist can do with a child to help in becoming less bothered by the sensory issues. 

Another helpful, easy-to-understand resource for parents, teachers, and therapists in the book, The Ultimate Guide to Sensory Processing Disorder, Easy Everyday Solutions to Sensory Challenges written by Roya Ostovar, Ph.D. This book also gives examples of children with a sensory processing disorder, the reasons behind the child’s behavior, current research, practical advice, and step-by-step strategies to manage and accommodate children in all environments.
