This is Gabriel Making Sense of School: A Book About Sensory Processing Disorder by Hartley Steiner

This is Gabriel: Making Sense of School provides a look into the challenges children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) face in the classroom. This easy to read and beautifully illustrated picture book gives teachers, parents and students a better understanding of all seven senses, how they are each affected at school and what kinds of accommodations are necessary to help children with SPD become learning sensations!


I am positive that Hartley's book will help teachers around the world not only understand SPD but also how it feels to our sensational kids in their classrooms. And that understanding will help our children thrive in school right alongside their peers. Thank you, Hartley. --Chynna T. Laird, author of I'm Not Weird, I Have SPD and Not Just Spirited: A Mom's Sensational Journey With Sensory Processing Disorder
