A groundbreaking guide to managing the emotional and behavioral components of your child’s sensory processing challenges Imagine having the flu, while lying in a bed of ants, listening to heavy metal at high volume, and trying to do calculus.

Now consider living in that body all the time. It becomes easy to understand how kids with difficulties processing and controlling sensory information can become avoidant, anxious, impatient, irritable, or oppositional. If you have a child who has a sensory regulation issue, you may find yourself confused or frustrated by their behavior. This book will help you understand your child’s behavior, as well as the root cause of their emotional outbursts, and provides an arsenal of tools to help your child self-regulate. This book addresses the often-overlooked connection between sensory sensitivity and emotional and behavioral issues, which can often lead to a diagnosis of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), an anxiety disorder, or a host of other disorders of childhood. You’ll gain a better understanding of how your child’s sensory sensitivity affects how they feel and act, and also learn powerful sensory regulation skills to help your child manage their emotions and improve relationships with family and friends. Whether your child has been diagnosed with sensory processing disorder (SPD), ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), you’ll find proven-effective tips and strategies for dealing with the sensory sensitivity that drives your child’s emotions and behavior, and discover ways to ease tension in your home caused by your child’s disorganization, oppositional behavior, refusal to eat, disruptive behavior, and anxiety. Parenting can be challenging even when behavior is predictable and age-appropriate, and when a child has a nervous system that is dysregulated, it is even more so. With this book, you will not only learn to understand your child’s behaviors, but will also learn sensory regulation skills to help your child—and your family as a whole—find some much-needed balance.

    This book gets two stars because the first half of the book is helpful and illuminating. It validated many experiences I had, that I witnessed in my family, and that I notice in children I encounter now. There were also some helpful suggestions throughout, especially the ones about gentle inquiry and accomodating sensory needs. HOWEVER. This book is the literal epitome of "tell me you're white, heterosexual, and economically privileged without telling me." The majority of the solutions offered in This book gets two stars because the first half of the book is helpful and illuminating. It validated many experiences I had, that I witnessed in my family, and that I notice in children I encounter now. There were also some helpful suggestions throughout, especially the ones about gentle inquiry and accomodating sensory needs. HOWEVER. This book is the literal epitome of "tell me you're white, heterosexual, and economically privileged without telling me." The majority of the solutions offered involve purchasing items, multiple items, which is so out of reach for families that are financially struggling. There is also an argument to be made here that it encourages consumerism in children, that the optimal solution to doing anything difficult is to be rewarded with a material object. The system of reward itself is questionable. In no way does it represent the eventual adult life children will lead - no one gives you a reward in adulthood for doing something challenging. The thing that really got my gears grinding though was the constant mention of "this behaviour will cause social problems for your child." What if the problem isn't the child and their different sensory needs? Why don't we work on teaching children and adults that it is *never* okay to shame someone for meeting their need in a particular way? I personally would rather teach a child agency and how to stand up for themself, to assert that they're allowed to meet whatever need they have in a way that works for them, as long as they are being mindful of consent if other people are involved. Overall, I would never recommend this book to parents of children struggling with sensory regulation. Shame is at the center of many of the solutions offered and I fail to see what benefit there is to teaching a child to be ashamed of their differences. This reads more like parents trying to make themselves comfortable than it does focusing on what is in the child's best interests long-term.

    I was initially interested in this book as a teacher, looking for information and perhaps some practical tips on how to best interact and support children with sensory issues. Although geared towards parents it was still a beneficial read. I especially like the built in time for reflection in 'Take A Moment' slots. The case studies offered a sometimes familiar scenario that helped me develop the beginnings of a better understanding.

    I received this book free in a Goodreads giveaway. I found this to be a straightforward read that I found myself making many highlights in. As someone with a Psychology degree and who has worked out in the field a bit sometimes these helpful books don't have many new tips, but I felt like this one had plenty! There is a wealth of knowledge and case examples throughout that I hope to use with my daughter to help in regulation.

    As a research psychometrist, I found this book VERY helpful in discussing skills to help manage sensory regulation. The book is set up in two sections: understanding problems with sensory regulation and practical applications to help parents help their child. There are five chapters within each section. The author does a great job explaining the ins and outs of sensory regulation and provides spot-on tools and recommendations that parents will find helpful. This book should be on all psychologis As a research psychometrist, I found this book VERY helpful in discussing skills to help manage sensory regulation.
