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).

Product Details

As a mom of a newly diagnosed child with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), I relentlessly sought experts in SPD, as well as top nutritionists, biopsychologists, and neurologists. I figured that if I understood the major functions of the brain, and how it's supposed to take in, process and respond to stimulation, I could discover how SPD interferes with these functions. Understanding the whole picture - the combination of body, brain and nutritional health - led me to embrace the "Sensory Diet." In this book, I share the keys of a well-balanced nutritional diet and the activities and exercises that truly work. Use the resources in this book to create a whole picture of your own child's conditions and customize a Sensory Diet for him/her.

"If you're the parent, teacher, relative or friend of a sensory kid, The Sensory Processing Diet will give you unique insight into his or her world. Reading it was a breath of fresh air, as I could relate to so many of her parenting struggles and found her recommended interventions to be both doable and helpful."
-- CAMERON KLEIMO, sensory mom

"Chynna Laird has written a sensational book about a little known disorder, but one that is becoming increasingly more identified in children. As a child psychologist, I found the book to be interesting, informative and complete. I recommend it highly to parents and professionals. I loved it."
--LAURIE ZELINGER, PhD, ABPP, RPT-S, board certified psychologist, author of Please Explain "Anxiety" to Me

"I work with many children in play therapy that also experience sensory issues. The Sensory Diet gives an in-depth look at contributors to SPD, what types of treatments are available and adjustments families can make so that a child with SPD can cope in life in a way that he/she hasn't understood before. I wholeheartedly recommend it to therapists and parents."
--JILL OSBORNE, EDS, LPC, CPCS, RPTS, author of Sam Feels Better Now!
