Activities for Kids with Sensory Processing Disorder
Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A.
Foreword by Trude Turnquist, PhD, OTR/L
Includes new activities and updated information
The author who has written one of the best-loved and genuinely helpful books for parents whose children have sensory processing disorder (The Out-of-Sync Child) has followed it up with this companion volume, which presents more than one hundred playful activities specially designed for kids with SPD.
Each activity in this inspiring and practical book is SAFE—Sensory-motor, Appropriate, Fun and Easy—to help develop and organize a child’s brain and body. More importantly from your child’s point of view, each activity is playful, warm, funny and interesting. It should be quite easy to engage a child in these games and projects — and perhaps quite difficult to disengage both the child and yourself from playing them because they really are so much fun.
Whether your child faces challenges with touch, balance, movement, body position, vision, hearing, smell, and taste, motor planning, or other sensory problems, this book presents lively and engaging ways to bring fun and play to everyday situations.
This revised edition includes new activities, along with updated information on which activities are most appropriate for children with coexisting conditions including Asperger’s and autism, and more.
