    This is a fantastic book. They also write another book called The Out Of Sync Child Has Fun. Which has all kinds of different sensory games. My son has autism and suffers from sensory issues.

    I have 2 children with this disorder. My 1 son is 22 and the other is 5. I recognized it in my 5 year old at 2 years of age and began therapy right away. He has adjusted great to school and continues to need services. My oldest struggled throughout his school years and did graduate and continued on to college.

    Just wanted to say great to see this,it is so unheard of getting the word out is part of thebattle of dealing with sensory issues.Great book,and important to mention the importance of a certified OT doing an eval for diagnosis.We have almost 5 year old twin boys with sensory issues as well as lead poisoning,likely due to their SID issues,a 2yr old son from a second set of twins,dealing with SID issues,and an almost 16 yr old being evaluated for this.I would like to pass on that as they get older and try to deal on their own they get pegged as behavioral/emotional children,and even can be diagnosed with ADHD as my oldest,but none of the traditional things for any of that has helped my son we’ll see if the sensory diagnosis is on the money for him,as my knowledge increases in this I’m feeling more confident that his issues are also sensory.
    There is also an SPD support group on yahoo groups,and I found this there this morning,I’m excited about it. http://www.autisticlike.com

    This is a great book! My sister, who is an occupational therapist and works with sensory integration highly recommends it.

    Thank you for sharing this information. While I don’t think that this applies to my son, I’ve definitely come in contact with children in my classes that have had SPD, whether their parents knew it or not. Thankfully there are resources available for parents today, and I’m sure they’ve been great for Jojo.

    This is something that my son was diagnosed with when he was 2 years of age. An occupational therapist came to my home once a week for many months and taught me valuable tips and gave great advice on what I needed to do. I think my son still has the disorder but it’s nowhere near the degree it used to be. I owe it to the occupational therapist.

    My twins were both recently diagnosed. I also highly suggest “Sensational Kids” by Lucy Jane Miller PhD. For a chronicle of our journey with SPD, visit my blog.

    My son was diganosed with SPD very early. 18 months. He actually reached milestones as he should have up to this time. The best thing that worked for him were gentle squeezes and rocking motions while he was held tight ! ! This calmed him. When he started school if noises bothered him he was allowed to crawl under the teachers desk until he felt better. As time goes on it gets better. I would like to offer parents the hope that their child will get through this as well as yourself !

    We have a 7 yr old and 3 yr old. The 3 yr old has febrile seizures and has been diagnosed with SID the 7 yr old is being tested after having been possibly given a false diagnosis of ADHD 6 months ago. The 3 yr old starts OT Thursday and the 7 Yr. has his eval on Thursday.
