Book Review: Raising A Sensory Smart Child
Raising a Sensory Smart Child - Helping Your Child with Sensory Integration Issues, by Lindsey Biel and Nancy Peske, forward by Temple Grandin. The strategies and advice offered through this book make it a treasure for parents and professionals who care for children with sensory integration issues.
Each child is so much more than can be described with a diagnosis. Supporting them with faith, hope and joy will bring a better quality of life and richness of experience to us all. Every day we can each start over building more satisfying relationships and finding our own true potential. This summer more than ever, it's a good idea to take a deep breath and look for a better way to go forward as we enjoy the minute that we are sharing. Hang in there!
