Thank you to Loving healing press for allowing me the opportunity to review this book. This particular book interests me because my youngest daughter has a touch of this sensory issue. SPD stands for Sensory Processing Disorder. Thankfully this disorder for my daughter was not severe enough to affect her on all levels but not everyone is that lucky.
Book: I’m Not Weird, I have SPD
Author: Chynna Laird
Juvenile Fiction: Social Issues – Special Needs
I found this book to be very informative in a very easy to read format, geared toward a child. This book explains the details about SPD and how it can affect your child’s life and their social abilities. I’m Not Weird I have SPD was inspired by the author’s child Jaimie and her struggle with Sensory Processing Disorder.
The book is great to read to your child, if they are suffering from SPD, it can help them learn how to put words to their feelings. One of the problems with SPD is that the kids do not know how to express how they are feeling, how it feels for someone to touch them or a certain material to touch their skin. They do not feel, hear or smell things the way others do and they need help to understand how to explain how scary things can be for them.
In the back of this book you will find some ‘sensational activities’ to help other children understand, along with lots of other helpful information for parents of children with SPD.
I highly recommend this book to any parent of a child suffering from SPD. I also recommend Loving healing Press [dot] com for many books on healing and different disorders.
