Questions From Those Who Know
As a mother of a child with sensory processing disorder, I know you can have many unanswered questions about your child's or loved one's diagnosis. That is where the idea of "Questions From Those Who Know" came from. I teamed up with Jeanette Baker, founder of the popular Sensory Processing Disorder Parent Support Group, and reviewed the most asked questions. Here you will see the result of what others have to say helped their children with SPD. Research shows early intervention is key; yet, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin to help your child. We hope that this book will bring you ideas that have worked for others, as well as comfort that you are not alone! We also hope it helps spread knowledge of what SPD is and what it is like to live with.
Coming Through The Fog
From her daughter Heather’s original diagnosis to a veritable smorgasbord of difficulties, Tami did her own research into Sensory Processing Disorder and Autism and sought out a therapeutic approach that actually worked. After comprehensive research, Tami found and accessed successful protocols for Heather which can be used by other parents of children with High-Functioning Autism.
Tami shows exactly how a sensory lifestyle was developed to provide and maintain Functioning Recovery and she provides examples of projective trials that show benefits pertaining to sensory support. CranioSacral Therapy and Bio-Medical supports are explained as well as their value in recovery is documented as Tami illustrates how a sensory lifestyle gives crucial support for school, employment and independent living.

"Tony's wish is that these stories positively support children on the autism spectrum and their parents overcome the challenges they face in everyday life"
Valerie Sheehan, Creator
This is a story about Ben, a lively and active boy, who finds the sensory experiences within his day to be overwhelming. Loud noises vibrate through his body and "shoes and socks bother him... they never feel just right". This can make it hard for Ben to be a good student. But don't worry, his teacher and mum know what to do to help him through his day.
A lovely story for parents, teachers and children to read to help them better understand what it feels like to function everyday in a world that feels overwhelming to the senses. Information about Sensory Processing Disorder and ideas to be used in the classroom at the back of the book.
