DENVER, CO. - New Book Release - "Sensitive Sam"
A children's book that tackles the daily challenges and triumphs of Sensitive Sam. Sam's misunderstood behavior complicates life at home and disrupts learning in school. At the suggestion of Sam's teacher, his parents seek occupational therapy for Sam's SPD. After treatment, Sam is happy and enjoys all the fun and messy things kids like to do.

"Research by the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation indicates that 1 in every 20 children experiences the symptoms of Sensory Processing Disorder that are significant enough to affect their ability to participate fully in everyday life."

Parent of a child with Sensory Processing Disorder author/illustrator Marla Roth-Fisch scrutinized what son was going through, wrote Sensitive Sam to ease the burden that accompanies parents and kids with SPD. The book offers reassurance that with a planned activity program, including therapeutic-listening, initiated by a professional occupational therapist, referred to as "Sensory Diet," will result in reducing the effects of Sensory Processing Disorder.

According to American Journal of Occupational Therapy, using a combination of therapeutic-listening and a sensory diet program, "Parents reported improvements in their children's behaviors related to sensory processing."
