The Sensory Team Handbook

Sensory Processing Disorder in Older Kids and Teens

A book for pre-teens and teens with SPD.  A wonderful tool for a therapist to work through with the child or for the parent and child to work on together

Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is one of the underlying conditions in Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, Tourette's Syndrome, and many learning disabilities.

Sensory processing issues are usually first noticed when a child is very young. With adequate intervention and training, most children can get rid of their sensory difficulties. As a result, most professional attention has been paid to children with SPD.

But many kids aren’t even diagnosed until they are in the middle school years. These young people have been struggling for years because of bewildering experiences, mistaken diagnoses, and painful failures. They need help too—and it has to come in a form that respects their independence.

An invaluable resource for pre-teens. This book explains sensory processing problems and helps to empower young adults to take a key role in managing their daily life experiences.”
