At least 90% of children with autism spectrum disorder experience sensory challenges. My Sensory Book: The More I Know About My World, The Better I Will Feel is a workbook designed to provide children with a clearer understanding of their sensory systems and the impact sensory input may have on their emotions. The book provides clear descriptions and specific information about sensory systems and illustrates the link that exists between sensory input and emotions.
This interactive workbook is useful in helping children and adults establish and understand the triggers for their strong emotions and use interventions that may help them cope more effectively with the world around them. After all, children who understand their sensory systems will have fewer behavior challenges!
MY SENSORY BOOK is an invaluable, practical resource for families, practitioners and children who have experienced and/or witnessed the intense emotions and reactions that children can have to sensory stimuli. This book is written in a family-friendly manner using real-life examples. But unlike other books of a similar nature, it addresses the emotional component of sensory difficulties. The interventions suggested are practical and applicable and written in such a way that even the busiest of families can implement them. --Sheri Katzman, PsyD., licensed clinical psychologist
