Parent and Teacher Friendly Resources on Sensory Integration

I am always on the lookout for resources about sensory processing that are written in parent (and teacher) friendly language. While at the Autism West Specialty Conference in December, I found what I was looking for!

Pediatric Therapy Network has created four great booklets that explain sensory integration in easy to understand language. The booklets are Sensory Integration: Answers for Parents, Sensory Integration: Answers for Teachers, Sensory Integration: Answers for Mealtime Success, and Sensory Integration: Answers About Autism.

Some of the highlights:
  • Answers for Teachers contains a checklist based on teacher observations to help identify students who may be having difficulty processing sensory information.
  • Answers for Teachers also contains a page of Tips for Teachers, with suggested activities for the teacher to try based on the student's behavior.
  • Answers for Mealtime Success contains a page of suggested sensory activities for parents to try to assist with mealtimes.

At on $4.95 each, I couldn't pass them up! If you would like one for yourself, they can be purchased directly from Pediatric Therapy Network.

What are your favorite parent friendly resources on sensory integration?
