Official Book Release

I am so pleased to announce the release of my book, This is Gabriel Making Sense of School.

You can view and purchase it here:

You can join the facebook group here:

And even better, for all of you out there who want ideas for sensory accommodations for your kiddo, I have designed a downloadable Sensory Accommodations Suggestions Page that you can download here:

I am so excited to see this nearly 2-year long project become a reality. I believe that SPD will get into the DSM and that this book will be key in helping educate not just teachers, but the children our kids share their classrooms with.

Here is to all of you for reading our journey and your encouraging words through the process of publishing this book. A heartfelt thank you to everyone.

Now, please, spread the word!

This is Gabriel Making Sense of School is officially available!

Had to stop back by and let you know I got my book in the mail today!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!! I work with young children who are transitioning into the schools. I took your book to our library and asked them to order a few copies to be able to loan to parents. It's such an easy read and so very helpful! I look forward to more great stories from you!!!! Congrats again:)

Heather, I am SO happy to hear you like the book and that you will find it helpful! Thank you for taking the time to write your response here. It would be GREAT if you would leave your feedback as a review for Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Can you please reauthorize the Sensory Accommodations Form? It won't come up and I would love to look at it before we have our IEP meetings for my boys.
