Review Highlights:

This book provides information for parents whose children have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other challenges. It talks about therapies, the equipment used, what sensory integration is, and provides other useful information that really can help parents and caregivers understand their children in order to provide the best support.

While my son has ASD, I am no expert. I found the information in this book to be useful, easy to understand, and not overwhelming at all. Everything is clearly explained. There are suggestions for various activities to help all sorts of issues, from self care to adapting the home environment. The suggestions that are made are things that, for the most part, are not very difficult to accomplish or can be with a little creativity.

This book is an invaluable tool for any parent or caregiver who has a child with ASD or other sensory issues.
