Publisher's Description

Do you have a child in your early childhood classroom who:

  • Climbs on top of furniture and jumps off?
  • Covers his ears when children are singing?
  • Refuses to touch clay, paint, or sand?
  • Often falls down and skins her knees?
  • Refuses to play on outdoor playground equipment?

If so, it is possible the child is having sensory processing problems. How can you help children with these problems so they can enjoy learning and grow in positive ways? Sensory Integration helps you identify children who have difficulties with sensory processing, and it offers simple, easy-to-use solutions to support the sensory needs of young children in the preschool classroom. Easy-to-implement solutions include adaptations and activities for children with different types of Sensory Processing Disorder. This book has a bonus chapter with instructions for creating low-cost items to help children with sensory issues.

Chapters cover concepts such as:

  • Explaining Sensory Integration and Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Defining sensory avoiders, seekers, and under-responders
  • Designing the environment to support the sensory development of all children
  • Helping preschoolers with sensory processing problems
  • Providing practical solutions to meet the needs of individual children during daily routines
  • Building and creating low-cost items such as a tire swing, sand pillow, and incline board to give children opportunities to get the sensory input they need

Editorial Reviews

The numbers of young children entering private preschools and the public school system exhibiting sensory processing disorders is increasing every year and currently are estimated to affect 12 to 17 percent of all children in the United States according to the Sensory Integration Education and Research Foundation. The collaborative work of Christy Isbell (Program Directory and Associate Professor for the Occupational Therapy Program at Milligan College in Tennessee) and Rebecca Isbell (Director of Tennessee's Center of Excellence in Early Childhood Learning), "Sensory Integration: A Guide For Preschool Teachers" focuses on providing teachers with the tools they need to help children whose brains are not correctly processing information brought in by their senses. This problem can manifest itself as oversensitivity or undersensitivity to touch, sights, sounds, movement, tastes, or smells; unusually high or low activity levels; coordination problems; poor attention span or difficulty focusing on tasks; and low self-esteem. In addition to helping teachers identify these children, "Sensory Integration" also offers practical, easy-to-use solutions to supporting children's sensory needs. Of special note are the chapters that show how to determine whether a child is a sensory seeker or avoider; create effective learning environments to support the sensory development of all children; and the implementation of practical solutions to meet the needs of individual children in the preschool classroom. "Sensory Integration" is recommended as require reading for all preschool teachers, and would be highly informative reading for the parents of children with sensory disorders as well. - Midwest Book Reviews
