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! CHYNNA LAIRD – is a mother of four, a freelance writer, blogger, editor and award-winning author. Her passion is helping children and families living with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), mental and/or emotional struggles and other special needs.

A storybook about special needs siblings to engage the whole family! My daughter, Jordhan, has the unique position of not only being a middle child, but a middle child among siblings with special needs. This story touches on the important contributions Jordhan makes to our family, especially on the days when she doesn?t think so. We need more stories for siblings of special needs children. This is my gift to each of them to show how much we appreciate their very important role in the family. In the book, I have outlined activities that siblings can do on their own, or with parents and/or siblings. To make the most of the message given in the book, as well as from the activities provided, it is my hope that siblings and family members will:Have a tool that will help make siblings of special needs children more visible in the family unit;Give a voice to siblings that represents how real their feelings and concerns are, even when they aren?t always able verbalize those things;Help to provide a greater level of understanding by strengthening communication, patience and respect among family members;Show that there is so much more than the labels these families are given and offer some insight into how they can learn to advocate for their children; andRemember that each of us brings something beautiful and unique with us into the world that we can learn from, and teach others about. And that?s so powerful."When you are a sibling of a child with special needs, especially one whose life can be dictated by sensory issues from their environment, you often learn to "live in the moment." In this validating family book, Mia's feelings are explored. Often siblings have to sacrifice or alter their day because of the needs of their brother or sister ?whether it be leaving a fun activity to go to therapy or dealing with a meltdown that affects the whole family. Don?t Rush Me explores these situations in a way that teaches siblings that their way-too-familiar rollercoaster of feelings is normal and that they are not alone in them." --Diane M. Renna, author ofÿMeghan's World: The Story of One Girl's Triumph Over SPD "Using colorful illustrations to deliver her message and spot-on dialogue, any parent or child can identify with the situations Chynna Laird presents. Written from the perspective of a typical child, one understands the patience and assistance she willingly offers to her siblings with sensory processing difficulties. This is a sweet, lovely book that cheers family relationships and accepts individual differences in others." --Laurie Zelinger, PhD, ABPP, RPT-S, Board Certified Psychologist, author ofÿPlease Explain "Terrorism" to Me From Loving Healing Press www.LHPress.com
