Reviews - What do customers think about Building Bridges Through Sensory Integration: Therapy for Children with Autism and Other Pervasive Developmental Disorders?

Easy to understand and practical  Sep 15, 2007
I'm an occupational therapist and have taken entire courses in sensory integration that were not as clear and helpful with ideas as this book.
Great suggestions, Not just for autism  Jun 12, 2007
As an occupational therapist, I love this book for the suggestions it provides to the very practical everyday difficulties parents face when their child has sensory integration issues. To me, the only downfall is that it refers to children with autism so much. I have used it with any child with sensory integration difficulties, but have had to create my own handouts based on the book to avoid offending parents whose children are clearly not autistic. It addresses things like brushing teeth, getting to and staying asleep, and problem behaviors like biting, hitting, and so much more.
review  May 12, 2007
This is a great book for any parent with an autistic child. Occupational therapist use this book them selves. The book gives good fundamental info on sensory issues and provides good strategies on how to help your child. Outstanding book
