Wendy Vann’s job as a counselor could not prepare her for raising two sons with special needs. Mykel did not like to be held, would not sleep at night, cried often, and couldn’t be comforted. He also had projectile vomiting, allergies to milk, asthma, and never slowed down. Jesse was even more active than his brother, and his list of problems included frantic feeding, tremors, difficulty nursing, and constant ear infections. In this book, Vann shares how she came to view her children’s problems as assets. She also explores how she struggled with decisions over medicating her children versus using more natural methods. Throughout, she focuses on sensory integration, or processing, which is how we use information through our senses to connect with what we have already learned about the world around us. Children with special needs often process this information much different than others. Whether you have a loved one with Autism, Sensory Processing, Tourette Syndrome, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyslexia or some other problem, you’ll be inspired by Vann’s journey—and walk away with practical information to improve behavior and enhance success with Sensory Integration Plus.

For preschool children with emotional difficulties arising from difficulties in attachment, standard observations used in early years settings are not always helpful in identifying their problems and providing guidance on how they can be helped. Combining an accessible introduction to attachment and child development with a child observation tool for identifying behaviour, and the emotional needs underlying this behaviour, this book enables early years professionals to identify problems and provide appropriate support. 'Case study' boxes help to illustrate typical patterns of attachment, and all aspects of behaviour are covered including play, interaction with peers, neediness, and aggression. A range of handouts and activities is included, and guidance provided on how to work within professional boundaries. Written in clear, concise language, Observing Children with Attachment Difficulties in Preschool aims to equip the reader with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and support children's emotional and social difficulties. Suitable for use with children aged 2 – 5, this guide will be an invaluable resource for early years professionals, as well as for use by clinicians, teachers and learning support staff.
