9781932565454: Building Bridges Through Sensory Integration: Therapy for Children with Autism and Other Pervasive Developmental Disorders

Written by three experienced occupational therapists, this book offers a combination of theory and strategies. It is a perfect tool for those working with young children, but also broad enough to be adapted for older children and adults. Building Bridges provides creative techniques and useful tips while offering innovative strategies and practical advice for dealing with everyday challenges, including managing behaviors, improving muscle tone, developing social skills, selecting diets, and more. Part one explains the role of the occupational therapists in treatment and examines sensory integration theories. Part two offers methods of identifying sensory problems in children along with numerous strategies and activities.

Helpful topics include:

 

  • What is Occupational Therapy?
  • What is Sensory Integration?
  • What are the Sensory Systems?
  • Identifying Problems with Sensory Integration Strategies for Challenging Behaviors
  • Ideas for Self Care Skills
  • Adapting Home, School, and Child Care Settings

Review:

""This is an excellent resource book that clearly explains sensory systems and sensory integration and how to identify problems in this area for individuals with autism. There are checklists to help identify concerns, and it is full of practical suggestions for activities for specific difficulties, strategies for challenging behaviors, and adaptations in a variety of settings.” --Geneva Centre for Autism

""The how-to book on sensory integration that we have been wishing and waiting for.” --Autism National Committee

“Focusing on children diagnosed with autism or other pervasive developmental disorders, and who experience abnormal sensory processing and impaired motor planning, Building Bridges provides a practical resource for parents, educators, occupational therapists and other professionals. Hundreds of strategies and ready-to-use activities for sensory learning.” --Parentbooks
