In this book, neuropsychologist Dr. Roya Ostovar helps parents to help their children. She provides clear explanations, up-to-date research, step-by-step strategies, and case examples that bring her proven methods to life.
Lynda Farrington Wilson
Interview with Lynda Farrington Wilson, author of Squirmy Wormy: How I Learned to Help Myself. This is a wonderful little children’s book about a boy named Tyler, who has autism and SPD. Together with Tyler, the reader learns about SPD, and what everyday easy therapies he can do by himself feel better. For instance: “I feel like running really fast, run run run! Maybe I just need a s-q-u-e-e-z-e between the couch cushions like a hot dog. Whew! I feel better.” Endorsed by Dr. Temple Grandin, this book is sure to help many children, who perhaps previously did not even know they had SPD, lead calmer, richer lives.
