This is a ground breaking book that explain Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and presents a drug-free approach that provides expect parents. Sensory processing disorder is when the brain has trouble getting and giving an answer to information that comes in through the senses. Formerly known as Sensory Integration Dysfunction, it isn't currently named a definite medical diagnosis. Over-responsivity or under-responsivity to touch or movement? A kid with SPD could be a "sensory avoider," withdrawing from touch, refusing to wear certain clothing, avoiding active games or he might be considered a "sensory disregarder," needing a jump start to get moving. Over-responsivity or under-responsivity to sounds, sights taste, or smell? She may cover her ears or eyes, be considered a picky eater, or seem oblivious to sensory cues. Cravings for sensation? The "sensory craver" never gets enough of certain sensations, e.g., messy fun, spicy food, noisy action, and perpetual movement. Poor sensory discrimination? She might not sense the difference between objects or experiences - unaware of what she's holding unless she looks and struggling to sense when she's falling or how exactly to catch herself. Unusually high or low activity level? The kid could be constantly on the go - wearing out everyone around him or move slowly and get tired easily, showing little desire for the world. Issues with posture or motion coordination? He might slouch, move awkwardly, and seem careless or accident-prone. These are usually the first hints to Sensory Processing Disorder - a common but frequently misdiagnosed problem where the central nervous system misinterprets messages from your senses. Some individuals with sensory processing disorder are oversensitive to things in their environment. Everyday noises or mind-boggling may hurt. The light touch of the t-shirt may chafe their skin. Others with sensory processing disorder may: Be uncoordinated. Bump into things. Be hard to respond or react during play. Sensory processing problems are usually recognized in children. However, they can also affect adults. Sensory Processing Disorders are generally observed in developmental conditions like autism spectrum disorder. Sensory processing disorder is not just named a stand-alone disorder. Many experts believe that should change. This book offers comprehensive, clear information for parents and professionals--and a drug-free remedy approach for children.

Enter into the world of one autistic young woman as she offers parents insight into how she thinks, feels, and acts. Organized by topic, Living in Technicolor contains poetry, blog posts, and question-and-answer sections to give you the inside view on life with autism.
