These are the books I’ve read (and reread) over the last two years that I found to be the most helpful.
Homeschooling Children with Special Needs – Whether or not homeschooling is for your family, this book is a great resource. She discusses “differences” vs “disability”, reviews all kinds of learning challenges and provides resources (and lots of them) for each.
I Believe in You – Rather than a practical how-to, this book tells the story of one mom and her daughter. I started reading this and couldn’t put it down. It taught me two things: I’m not crazy and I’m not alone. I’ve read it many times. You can also go here to check out her blog.
Raising a Sensory Smart Child – Written by a mom and the OT who helped her son, this book provides practical, everyday ideas for incorporating a sensory diet. It also explains SPD and how it can affect children.
We hope something here helps.
