Format: Paperback
I think this is a brilliant book. I LOVE that it is geared specifically to the kids themselves. It is incredibly user friendly and easy to read. Mucklow uses great illustrations that keep the reader engaged in what she is saying. I learned a lot reading this book because it made it easier to see the world through my kid's eyes. I will definitely be keeping this book for Aiden to read once he is old enough.

So much of the time these kids are surrounded by adults talking ABOUT them but this book brings them into the conversation and helps to give them some control in a time when they feel so out-of-control. The teen years are hard for all kids but Sensory issues make them even harder- this book can help!

I would definitely recommend The Sensory Team Handbook to any family that has been touched by Sensory Processing Disorder. I also think this book would be an amazing resource for schools and Occupational Therapists to keep on hand for the kids they work with.

Helping Kids Make Sense June 15 2009
By C. Fannin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finally, a book for our middle schoolers that explains Sensory Processing Disorder ("SPD").

Written for the adolescent, it is at times humorous; others times it takes a no-nonsense approach to explaining the often-times confusing world of SPD and helps to make sense of your teenagers world.

This is on our "must-read" list for 2009!

User friendly! June 8 2009
By L. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This handbook is very user friendly. I have found that it is a great start for children and their parents to begin learning about how sensory processing affects their life. This book makes so much sense and does a great job explaining these concepts in normal, every day life circumstances. It helps kids feel that these tendencies do not have to mean they have a "disorder", and it is reassuring for them to have some concrete strategies as well!

My child suddenly feels okay about being different! Nov. 14 2011
By DivingToto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although not diagnosed with anything, our son is on the edge of many areas and we have been constantly looking for something that helps explain who he is and how to cope with how he functions. Everything led us to sensory issues, so we got this book (for him) to read, for as a 4th grader, he was definately tired of listening to his parents tell him about things. From the minute we did the "look inside" he was excited to see that a book let him know that it was okay to be different and that others were like him! The book arrived today and he read for 2 hours after his homework. He kept running in to show me how it pretained to him (or didn't) and loved explaining to his younger brother just how each of us is "like a football team." I was thrilled to see him feel so good about himself and to be relieved of the duty of coming up with how to say to him that he was not that different from everyone else.

This book is wonderful! It really gives the child a sense of ownership of who they are and how they can take control of certain things in their life to feel better about their daily living and how to feel more in control each day. When they start to forget what they have learned, a quick glance at the comics will be a gentle reminder of where they need to be and what they have read.

I would recommend this to anyone and everyone from about grade 4-10.

A worthwhile toolkit for those families in need June 3 2009
By Steven E. Salterio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is full of practical tips. It has a "workbook style" designed for teens and pre-teens using lots of graphics, short paragraphs with clear headings, and cartoons. While some youth may read straight through, others can just check out chapter(s) of interest. The checklists help a youth understand more about why he or she reacts to various sensations and offer practical tips to cope with his or her sensory needs. This is a book that can "start a conversation" between youth and parents in a practical and proactive way. Or, it can be a book for youth to read and consider on their own.

Disclosure: The reviewer is acquainted socially with the author's family.
