Starting Sensory Integration Therapy by Bonnie Arnwine


Starting Sensory Integration Therapy by Bonnie Arnwine

Starting Sensory Integration Therapy offers 100+ activities and games for children with Sensory Processing Disorders (SPDs).Parent of a son with SPD, author Bonnie Arnwine chose activities that require minimal time, money, and clean-up. Most ingredients are already on hand: empty yogurt cups, string, soap, Kool-aid, flour, paper plates, etc. If the kids tire of an activity, an Extend It! section shows how to use the same ingredients in new and different ways. Kids have fun while activities exercise the seven sensory muscles: the visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, oral, vestibular, and proprioceptive senses. Activities can be enjoyed with others, so children also benefit from interacting socially with their peers, parents, and teachers.


Fun, functional, and easy to set up and clean up, these activities will help all kids (and moms and dads, too) get in sync. Thank you, Bonnie. We need this book! --Carol Kranowitz, MA, author of The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun and The Goodenoughs Get in Sync What a fun book! It is filled with numerous sensory activities that will facilitate learning and skill development. Ms. Arnwine extends many of the activities that provide the opportunity for a variety of creative play. This book is a welcome addition and will be utilized by parents, teachers, and therapists. --Nancy Kashman, LOTR, co-author of The Sensory Connection

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
