Synopsis: As a mom of a newly diagnosed child with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), Chynna Laird relentlessly sought experts in SPD, as well as top nutritionists, biopsychologists, and neurologists. She thought that if she could understand the major functions of the brain, and how it’s supposed to take in, process and respond to stimulation, she could discover how SPD interferes with these functions. Understanding the whole picture (the combination of body, brain and nutritional health) led Chynna to embrace the “Sensory Diet.”
“Exceptionally well written, organized and presented for the benefit of the non-specialist general reader with no previous background on the subject…”
In the pages of “The Sensory Processing Diet: One Mom’s Path of Creating Brain, Body and Nutritional Health for Children with SPD”, Chunna share the keys of a well-balanced nutritional diet and the activities and exercises that truly work. “The Sensory Processing Diet” is specifically designed for parents to utilize the resources in this study to create a whole picture of their own child’s conditions and create a customize Sensory Diet for him or her.
Critique: Exceptionally well written, organized and presented for the benefit of the non-specialist general reader with no previous background on the subject, “The Sensory Processing Diet: One Mom’s Path of Creating Brain, Body and Nutritional Health for Children with SPD” is an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to community and college/university library Parenting collections in general, and SPD supplemental studies lists in particular. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of concerned parents that “The Sensory Processing Diet” is also readily available in a paperback edition (9781615995219, $21.95) and in a digital book format (Kindle, $6.95).
