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.

Using Intensive Interaction And Sensory Integration

People with severe autism experience the sensory information they receive from the world completely differently to those not on the spectrum. They feel cut off and overwhelmed, and their behaviour can become very distressed. This handbook shows how we can engage with people who are non-verbal or semi-verbal and sometimes even those who have speech but lose the power to process it when they are in crisis. We can help them to make sense of the world. Intensive Interaction uses a person’s own body language to make contact with them and Sensory Integration develops the capacity of an individual to receive, process and apply meaning to information provided by the senses through targeted physical activities. These techniques can be used to develop an environment tailored to the particular sensory needs of the person with severe autism, reducing factors that cause distress. With illustrations, case examples and a wide range of tried-and-tested techniques, this practical guide provides indispensable tools for parents, carers and other professionals supporting people with severe autism and other learning disabilities.
