NAPPA Award Winner!

Over 90% of people with ASD have sensory issues.
Using the same product and easy-to-read format as the first edition, this newly expanded book explains how many children with high-functioning ASD relate to the world through their senses. The book reviews sensory terminology and how the sensory systems impact behavior. An expanded discussion of assessment tools is followed by a comprehensive chapter on evidence-based interventions. Finally, a new chapter looks at meeting a student's sensory needs throughout the day and across environments using simple and easy-to-use forms and checklists.

Editorial Reviews

This is the first book on the sensory issues in ASD that throughly describes my child. This book provides realistic strategies and truly consolidates the variety of complex issues faced by parents in dealing with the symptoms of high-functioning autism. --Angela Collins, parent and special education parent advocate, Atlanta, Georgia.

...This is the most comprehensively practical sensory-related book I have read to date! I will be carrying this book along as I go on consultations because it addresses most of the gaps I see between knowing sensory issues are important for individuals with ASD and related disorders and understanding how to meet them... --Judy Endow, MSW, autism consultant

This is an immensely valuable book - filled with practical advice for analyzing sensory processing difficulties. Individuals with high-functioning autism, their families, and community professionals called upon for assistance will find this book helpful in designing environmental adaptations and intervention strategies that enable individuals to be more successful. --Diane Adreon, EdD, associate director, University of Miami-Nova Southeastern University Center for Autism & Related Disabilities
