This newly expanded book explains how many children with high-functioning ASD relate to the world through their senses. The book reviews sensory processing 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.
Why we like it: There are numerous aspects about this book to like, including the very readable nature of the authors’ writing style, the depth of knowledge imparted within the book and the cute graphics which are used to represent the various sensory systems. This well thought out use of graphics provides a pictorial representation of the sensory systems, making it easier for the reader to easily grasp the more in-depth concepts.
