Understanding Sensory Dysfunction: Learning, Development And Sensory Dysfunction In Autism Spectrum Disorders ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Bipolar Disorder
by Polly Godwin Emmons, Liz McKendry Anderson

"This well written book on sensory integration provides examples of problems related to sensory integration dysfunction at school and home, along with ways to anticipate and ameliorate them. The authors demonstrate how parents and teachers can be detectives to understand via observation what is going on with these children, as not only the children's reactions but their observations and communication are unlike other children their age. This is a great resource for both parents and teachers, providing both a helpful overview and many specific examples of ways to assist children with serious sensory dysfunction at school and at home."

Raising a Sensory Smart Child: The Definitive Handbook for Helping Your Child with Sensory Integration Issues
by Lindsey Biel, Nancy Peske

"This book is an indepth and comprehensive guide to almost all aspects of raising a child with sensory integration issues. Even if you have read one or two other books on sensory integration you will find this book helpful. It delves into topics that parents care about like self-care (such as dressing, tooth brushing, and eating) and socializing (such as parties, crowds, noise), providing suggestions for making these situations easier. Many other important aspects of parenting a child with sensory integration are addressed, such as coping with tantrums, rigidity, and overload. I would recommend this book to any parent who has a child with any level of sensory integration problems, but especially to those whose children are struggling in their daily lives." (Allison Martin)
