Award Winning Book: Gold ForeWord Book of the Year
A child’s sensory system affects their ability to learn, play, socialize and function. Maybe a child isn’t able to sit still in class because his shirt tag is bothering him, or isn’t able to play with other children because his balance is off. Maybe your child isn’t just a picky eater, it could be that his sensory system needs some special guidance and adjusting.
Britt Collins, MS,OTR/L and Jackie Linder-Olson, an occupational therapist and parent team, have organized and combined parenting information along with sensory integration methods, tips, and solutions. We’ve made it easy and fun and will help you avoid a lot of unnecessary battles between you and your child. It’s amazing how quickly our children adapt and the little adjustments that can make our days smoother. Beginning with your baby’s birth, Britt and Jackie walk parents through everyday situations and duties all the way through your child’s early stages of development through the first five years. They explain the underlying reasons beneath your child’s negative behaviors and the often simple fixes.
