Endorsements

This book is an excellent resource for parents of children with self-regulation issues and the professionals who take care of them. It presents dozens of practical strategies for helping children with many kinds of dysregulation, from autism to Sensory Processing Disorder to ADHD. Therapists will appreciate the well-presented basic theoretical framework, but it is the careful and clear explanation of direct interventions that parents can do at home that is invaluable.”

- Sanford Newmark, MD, UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, Author of ADHD Without Drugs: A Guide to the Natural Care of Children with ADHD

With so many great ideas and on-the-spot solutions, this book is bound to become a marked-up, dog-eared reference for both established professionals and young therapists and teachers. Here in one book are techniques for helping a child calm, attend, and stay on task along with essential theoretical background to gain new insight and expand professional skills for working with children with autism, ADHD and sensory disorders.”
