"Anyone involved in the life of a child who have autism or a sensory modulation disorder will treasure this resource. Ms. Garland has done the heavy lifting to produce a detailed, accessible guide with fresh and practical sensory activities. Especially helpful are her recommendations for grading activities from very simple to more complex. These activities will not only revitalize interventions for therapists but also equip motivated do-it-yourself parents to engage in sensory learning with their children."
