Sensory Processing Books for Kids
The human brain is constantly processing sensory information through the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin. Our senses make our world come alive. But for children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), sensory signals sometimes aren’t interpreted and organized correctly. According to a 2004 study by psychologist and DRT/Floortime specialist Dr. Rioanne Ahn, around 1 in 20 children have SPD, which can present in as many different ways as there are diagnosed children. For some, clothing, physical contact, light, sound, food, or other sensory input is unbearably intense and unpleasant. Others may have the opposite reaction and show little or no response to sensory signals; even pain or extreme temperatures might go unrecognized. In order to help parents and caregivers better appreciate the world of children with SPD – and to help them to better communicate with one another – several books for children of all ages offer insights into their unique sensory needs.
