Description:

Understanding Sensory Dysfunction is a clear and comprehensive resource to identifying and addressing sensory dysfunction in children, using a range of practical strategies to help them reach their full potential at home, at school and in the community.

The authors explain the causes, contributing factors, symptoms and associated behaviors of sensory dysfunction, particularly when found in conditions such as autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), ADHD and bipolar disorder. Focusing on early intervention, they provide a host of tried and tested integration activities, assessment and curricular modifications, treatment options and useful equipment and resources that ultimately aim to limit or prevent the interference of sensory dysfunction with successful learning, socialization and skills development.

This accessible and empowering book offers a unique approach to the condition and will help families, teachers and caregivers meet the particular needs of children with sensory dysfunction.

Reviews:

This book is extremely reader-friendly and would appeal to a wide audience, especially parents, teachers and support staff in mainstream settings and special educational needs placements. It is well organized and it flows from beginning to end, making it difficult to put down. For me this book was highly thought-provoking and I would recommend it, especially to parents and those professionals with limited experience of working with children who present with complex behaviours.
