Understanding our sensory processing ability helps us to understand our likes, dislikes, and regulation style. i.e.: the strategies we use to help keep ourselves in a calm, alert state. The calm alert state is the state necessary for learning! Knowing how to stay regulated is a life skill. This ability enables us to function in different environments, in different situations and with different people. The Sensory Detective Curriculum is a resource that can be used in a school setting to enable children to learn more about themselves and others. It meets learning goals in science and social studies and can provide a platform to discuss how we behave and communicate with each other. Opening this discussion can help us understand how tensions can rise, how bullying can happen and how children in our own classroom can feel lonely, isolated and misunderstood.The Sensory Detective Curriculum enables students to discover sensory processing and how it supports attention, focus and regulation skills. Learning adventures include: * the neurology of sensory processing, * how sensory processing supports the nervous system to pay attention and focus, * how emotion is connected to sensory processing and regulation. Each chapter has fun activities for students to not only deepen their understanding but to apply this understanding to their own classroom.

"The strengths of this text include its comprehensiveness, its overall organization, and the study aids included in each chapter. The book lays the foundation for occupational therapy practice and identifies the broad knowledge base required for this endeavor. Building on this foundation, the book progresses logically from assessment through intervention with specific foci on postural control, hand function, visual perception, psychosocial and emotional development, feeding and oral motor skills, self-care and adaptation for independent living, play, handwriting, augmentative communication and computer access, and mobility. Specific strengths in content that merit emphases are the attention to the psychosocial development and needs of children, the use of technology to increase function, the importance of families and others in the child's system through the continuing process of adaptation, and the legislation that is relevant to children with disabilities and their families." (Foreword, p. ix).

Developmentally Based Psychotherapy

In Developmentally Based Psychotherapy, Dr. Greenspan enlarges both our understanding of human development and the therapeutic processes that promote emotional growth. Dr. Greenspan formulates practical therapeutic strategies based on our most recent discoveries of early presymbolic levels of adaptive and disturbed personality functioning, observations of the biological aspects of symptom and character formation, and emerging understanding of the phases of development throughout the course of life. Developmentally Based Psychotherapy formulates therapeutic processes that enable patients to build psychological capacities formerly thought to be beyond the reach of psychotherapy such as altering basic expectations, mood, and temperament; transforming impulses and behaviors into affects and mental representations; and forming new internalized object relationships, organizations of self, and capacities for self observation. In addition, Dr. Greenspan provides a new framework for research by defining developmentally based, clinically relevant categories of behavior and observable intervention strategies.
