Dear Reader: This handbook is also intended to be used with Understanding Your Child’s Sensory Signals as well as ASensoryLife.com. Enjoy the BONUS section of “Travelling with a Sensory Kiddo”! My hope is that with all of these tools, you will develop an understanding of sensory processing which empowers you to be the voice for your child as well as the leader in living a life filled with sensory enrichment. Educating yourself is the first step. Your journey continues when you embrace and engage in living a sensory enriched life and most importantly, understanding and respecting your child’s sensory differences. All topics discussed in this guide are further addressed on ASensoryLife.com. I suggest using the search bar on the homepage to enter a keyword about which you would like to find more information.
