Raising a Sensory Smart Child
by Lindsey Biel & Nancy Peske
For children with sensory integration (SI) issues-those who have difficulty processing everyday sensations and exhibit unusual behaviors such as avoiding or seeking out touch, movement, sounds, and sights-this groundbreaking book is an invaluable resource. Long thought to affect only autistic children, or mistaken for ADHD, SI dysfunction is finally being recognized as a separate condition.

Sensory Smarts offers real solutions, such as a sensory sensitivity scale, a behavioral rating chart, and a list of helpful organizations, as well as genuine hope of overcoming sensory integration problems. With much of it written from the perspective of a child, this richly illustrated book encourages children to work with adults in overcoming their sensory difficulties. This book will be indispensable to those grappling with, or trying to raise awareness of, sensory problems in childhood.

Too Loud, Too Bright, Too Fast, Too Tight
by Sharon Heller
Everyone knows how it feels to be annoyed by loud music, accosted by overly bright lights, bothered by crowds, and overwhelmed by a world that moves too quickly. Most people are able to ignore irritating sensations and focus on the task at hand. But as much as 15% of the population can't tune out harmless sensations and instead react to them with irritation, anger, and alarm. The author explains in this new book they suffer from sensory defensiveness.
