Our senses! Thanks to them, our brains are constantly flooded with information about the world around us. What may surprise you is that we’re not all wired the same way, and some of us are unable to understand exactly what we’re sensing. People with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), a newly identified neurological condition, as well as those with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), are frequently misunderstood by others when they over- or under-react to sounds, sights, smells, tastes, touch, movement, balance, and feelings within their bodies. In this guide, mental health counselor, SPD community advocate, and sensory adult Rachel S. Schneider, M.A., MHC, helps us to make sense of sensory issues. Whether you’re someone with sensory issues, a loved one supporting a sensory person, a professional, or someone that is curious about unusual and complex sensory experiences, this guide will answer your questions about life with sensory processing differences.Illustrations by Kelly Dillon of the humorous illustrated sensory blog, Eating Off Plastic.

Digging for information about adults with SPD? Eureka! You’ve struck gold! In this gem of a book, Rachel will gently, wisely, humorously help you unearth and sift through the "bits and pieces, the particularities and the behaviors” of your sensory life. With extrasensory grace gained through her own experiences growing up with SPD, and in her sparkling writing style, she will help you — at last — to understand your sensory issues and how to address them.
