Is your child sensitive to or overwhelmed by different sensory inputs? Do they seek out sensory stimulation throughout the day? Has a therapist or other professional suggested your child would benefit from fidgets, weighted clothing, or other sensory soothing tools?

This book includes instructions for more than 30 projects. They range from simple tools that can be assembled in minutes to weekend endeavors where you can invest your time and love. The book also includes information about each sensory system and ways to modify the projects to meet individual needs.

The beginnings of Super Toys

Each year I keep a notebook that I use for, wait for it....notes! This is where I record random lists and phone numbers and funny things the kids say. I try to keep it with me so rather than writing on scraps of paper I am bound to lose I write all in one place.

In the summer of 2013 I went down to Escondido to meet up with Kristin and we went to our 20th High School reunion. The next day while we were hanging out I told her all about my ideas for this book and we agreed we should write it. Then we spent an hour jotting down ideas of what we might include.

I just found my 2013 notebook on the shelf and it's amazing how much from these scribbled notes has made it through to the final draft two years later.
