When Kids Fly: Solutions for Children with Sensory Integration Challenges, Paperback
Filled with insights from the author Sally Fryer Dietz's years of physical and sensory integration therapy that you can take from the school to your home, When Kids Fly is written in a conversational tone that makes it perfect for parents, friends, teachers, and medical professionals, alike.
Starting from the moment that Dietz realized that something ''wasn't quite right'' with her son, and allowing us to follow them (and others) through to his adulthood, this one-of-a-kind book ties the practical to both the professional and the personal.
When Kids Fly can help you figure out when to worry about your child's development, when not to worry, and what options are available--no matter where your child falls on the spectrum of sensory motor integration. It is a wonderful resource for those who really want to help children discover their wings as they grow towards maturity and learn to fly on their own.
Excellent book for practitioners to make available for their clients. Purchase in bulk for client education.

"This was recommended reading because a young relative began to have therapy at Ms Dietz's clinic. The chapters explain and give hope to families who have children experiencing sensory difficulties. And explain how different treatment modalities are implemented and integrated."
