Parents are often the first to notice when a child is struggling with a sensory disorder. But even after knowing what the problem is, parents still need to know what to expect and, more importantly, what to do to help their child. This book is a parent-to-parent guide for raising a child with Sensory Integration Disorder.

Using nonmedical language, the authors walk you through the challenges that children may face, such as being uncomfortable with hugs and kisses, experiencing a "fight or flight" sensation when brushing teeth or combing hair, etc. The two moms give tips and advice for school, home, and the future.
