A resource book told as only a mother—and therapist—can do.
Solutions for Children with Sensory Integration Challenges
When author Sally Fryer Dietz received news from teachers that her oldest son seemed to be having more challenges in school than his peers, she wasn’t sure what to do. Her years of training as a physical therapist working with other people’s kids suddenly seemed to reach a much more personal level. This inspiring “must-have” book offers personal experiences and eye-opening revelations as it highlights common red flags, innovative solutions, therapies that work, potential dangers of technology, and tips on finding the right help.
Filled with insights from the author’s years of physical and sensory integration therapy that you can take from the school to your home, When Kids Fly is written in a conversational tone that makes it perfect for parents, friends, teachers, and medical professionals, alike. Starting from the moment that Dietz had her own realization that something “wasn’t quite right” with her son, and allowing us to follow them (and others) through to his adulthood, this is a one-of-a-kind book that ties the practical to both the professional and the personal. Discover how to help children who are often misunderstood by their reactions to the world by providing them with ways to overcome sensory integration and developmental glitches.
When Kids Fly can help you figure out when to worry about your child’s development, when not to worry, and what options are available—no matter where your child falls on the spectrum of sensory motor integration. It is a wonderful resource for those who really want to help children discover their wings as they grow towards maturity and learn to fly on their own.
