This book is an awesome resource for any special education teacher, especially those with students who have severe and multiple disabilities. Younger children, such as prek and k, could also benefit from these activities and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is considering it. It gives step by step, detailed instructions for each themed activity and walks you through each one.

This is a great book that uses themes typically used in preschool to give teachers a quick lesson plan that addresses all the senses and is designed to engage every child, but especially those with sensory processing issues.
I gave this book to my son's developmental preschool teachers as a gift and kept one for myself to use at home. The activities are easy to implement and most can be used at home as well.

Such a great book! It's filled with activities for EVERY theme. It's great to teach these, however in my classroom we have incorporated them into our center time (free time) because of time constraints. It addresses all areas of sensory needs with fun and easy activities

This book is jam packed with ideas for implementing a sensory enriched program for young children. It addresses the needs of children with sensory integration issues in such a way that the newest teacher or parent could easily understand. In my busy classroom I will be creating many new activities found in the themes section of the book. Thank you. This is just what I have been looking for!!

This book is a must-have for anyone working with pediatric special populations. It addresses many sensory-motor challenges these children face. The book is cleverly and easily categorized by themes--including holidays, methods of transportation, animals, and any events that kids find fascinating.
Suggestions for songs, gross motor, and fine motor activities are so helpful. The materials needed are often typical equipment found in the schools, or that can be purchased inexpensively.
Whether you're a teacher, aide, OT, PT, or a super parent, I highly recommend this book!
