A writer, textbook editor, teacher, and parent, Nancy Mucklow brings her practical real-world experience with sensory issues to a pre-teen and teen audience. Her ability to think in pictures, translate scientific jargon into everyday language, and write for young audiences without alienating them helps her books empower young people to take control of their lives. By focusing on the young reader as a capable human being, she moves the discussion away from the problems and onto the solutions.Review:
"This book is written for pre-teens and adolescents who have sensory processing disorder, in an easy-to-understand format, with complimentary illustrations and cartoons that help teens connect how mixed messages from the body impacts everyday experiences. The layout... is visually well formatted and designed as a sport game playbook for coaching, with team practice activities that address each sensory system and emotions and social interactions... A great resource for pre-teens and teens with sensory processing disorder." --Jenny Brack, author of Sensory Processing Disorder: Simulations and Solutions for Parents, Teachers, and Therapists
"A wonderfully refreshing book...the only book of its kind dealing with youngers in the second half of elementary school and early junior high. This would be a wonderful tool for a therapist to work through each chapter with the child, or for the parent and child to work together. I highly recommend this book for parents, therapists, and children alike." --Dr. Lucy Jane Miller, author of Sensational Kids: Hope and Help for Children with Sensory Processing Disorder
