  • My son is autistic with sensory intergration disorder. It can be very difficult to deal with. I purchased a book from Books A Million when he was first diagnoised it's called "The Everything Parent's Guide to Sensory Integration Disorder" written by Terri Mauro. It is an awesome book and helps you as a parent learn what you are dealing with. I highly recommend it. Also, my son has an occupational therapist and they have started him on the brushing technique and ordered him a weighter vest and a weighter blanket, you may ask his dr and they can recommend you to a program that could provide him an OT. I hope this helps, if you have anyother questions please feel free to e-mail me I will try and answer any of your questions. Good luck!!

  • I've found that book by Terri Mauro and the new book The Sensory Processing Disorder Answer book by Tara Delaney are very easy to understand. They're both comprehensive and from a personal perspective so they have a caring tone to them. I've also found the book by Tara Delaney to be easy to read for family members too because it's written in a question and answer format.

  • My daughter is also three and has been diagnosed with S.I. she attends occupational therapy twice a week for three hours a day. The intense and focused work out helps introduce her to a school environment and the physical work helps her better understand her abilities and limitations
