Sensory issues are such a key area for autistic people and yet so often overlooked.

As a paediatric Occupational Therapist with over 20 years of experience working with autistic children, I highly recommend this resource to any school, parent or carer who wish to expand their knowledge and understanding of sensory and motor challenges. Using plain and easy to understand language, this book explains the signs of sensory and motor difficulties. This latest version, sees Corinna Laurie explain the impact of regulation difficulties and how to implement strategies to support the child's developmental needs. This book includes many practical ideas to be used in homes and in schools to aid managing specific sensory difficulties, building independence skills. such as dressing and feeding, as well as activities that will support the development of fine and gross motor skills. This is a fantastic resource for both parents and professionals living or working with autistic individuals. -- Kirsty Richards, Paediatric Occupational Therapist
This is an excellent practical resource that provides accessible information on arousal states, self-regulation, environmental modifications and calming strategies to support autistic children and young people's skill development and well-being. It covers all the sensory domains including interoception which is key to understanding the emotional and behavioural regulation difficulties that autistic people so often experience. It is written with parents and education staff in mind but will be equally useful in health and social care settings too - we will be recommending this to all the families we work with! -- Dr Sarah Lister Brook, Clinical Director and Consultant Clinical Psychologist, National Autistic Society, UK
