Review Quotes

"'Sensations That Drive You Nuts!' is a sample of the simple language used in this workbook to help children, their families, and teachers understand sensory processing disorder (SPD). Encouraging children to draw how they feel, recognizing that recess can help one do better in school, becoming a self advocate and helping others when they are in need are some of the many wonderful examples the authors provide."
Diana A. Henry, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, author of the Sensory Tools books and DVDs and coauthor of The Sensory Processing Measures "The Auers have used their expertise in helping special needs kids to bring us a truly useful work brimming with practical exercises and worksheets that teachers, parents, and especially children can use immediately to better their lives. I can think of few people who work with children in any capacity who couldn't use this book."
Jeff Stimpson, author of Alex: The Fathering of a Preemie and Alex the Boy: Episodes From A Family's Life With Autism " Sensations That Drive You Nuts! is a sample of the simple language used in this workbook to help children, their families, and teachers understand sensory processing disorder (SPD). Encouraging children to draw how they feel, recognizing that recess can help one do better in school, becoming a self advocate and helping others when they are in need are some of the many wonderful examples the authors provide."

" "This entertaining and practical workbook encourages children to follow their natural urge to explore and experiment in order to discover how they experience their world through their senses and to master the feelings that result. As parents work on the exercises with their children, they will find that they understand their children in new ways and perhaps themselves better, as well. In our too-loud, too-bright, too-hurried world, understanding our sensory responses and learning to protect ourselves from overstimulation are important skills for children with special sensory processing challenges, and for the rest of us too."
