Customer Review: Kelly - This book provides insight on differences in sensory processing challenges related to older students for parents and professionals. The entire first chapter (40 pages!) reviews differences between Sensory Modulation Disorder, Sensory-Based Motor Disorder, and Sensory Discrimination Disorder, which was helpful as a behavioral professional. General information provided is detailed, but understandable for professionals without a sensory background, as well as family members. Processing time for different sensory systems is reviewed, helping to develop understanding of why activities or exposure may influence a student so many hours later. Scenarios and examples of sensory programs are included for a range of students, and informal assessments are provided in the appendix. The familiar, "Sensory Gang" characters are used in this book, as discussed in Asperger Syndrome and Sensory Issues: Practical Solutions for Making Sense of the World. Each sensory system is addressed, along with examples of hypersensitivity and hyposensitivity symptoms and practical, recommended activities. The book stresses the value of including an occupational therapist (OT) on the student's treatment team, but also acknowledges the value of including the adolescent or young adult, family, and other professionals to create a comprehensive plan that addresses sensory needs and decreases the impact of negative, or stigmatizing, behaviors. As a behavioral professional, this book was interesting and will be helpful in working with occupational therapists to identify replacement behavior targets for adolescents with sensory needs.
