Sensational Journeys

The first copies of my new book, Sensational Journeys (Sensory World 2011) have just started to arrive at the doorstep of the 48 amazing contributors that have been brave enough to share their stories in the book!  Some of them are even done reading it already - wow - fast readers!

Here is what those parents are saying on Facebook:

Emma - "I am about half way through the book, it is a wonderful book, the feeling of knowing other parents experience what we experience is the best feeling. I would highly recomened this book to anyone."

Jennifer - "I cried through the foreword and haven't stopped misting up or shedding tears since! lol.. I can relate on all levels to every story and feel the intense emotions that all of us parents have raising our amazing kids navigating through all of the challenges. I am honored to share in this book with you Emma to help bring comfort, understanding, and awareness for all of us moms and dads raising children with SPD."

Patty - "I love it! I read it one evening when I was feeling very alone and frustrated. I came away from reading the book feeling more validated than I have ever felt. As I read stories of other parents on the front line of SPD, I found myself nodding my head in agreement, crying and laughing. It's so great to know I am not alone in my struggles!"

Ellie - "I've read about half of it, and I love it. When you're in the thick of things, you feel so alone. Reading what other people have experienced and how they cope and thrive through it all is very inspiring. I have nodded my head in agreement and comaraderie so many times already! Thanks for "hooking us all up," so to speak!"

Kelly - "I've read it!! I was so excited when it showed up in the mail, that I pretty much read the whole thing as soon as I got it. It is such a wonderful book!! I love it!! The stories are so inspirational! I also love how there was a picture of each family included with their story. Thank you for making this book, Hartley!! I've learned a lot from everyone's stories. I'm going to read it again to catch stuff that I didn't the first time around."

Stacy - "I'm not quite half way through, but love it already! I'm sad that I didn't have a picture of myself with my kids to submit...course, I have one now, but didn't at the time. I am impressed with the thickness of the book. It is truly a bible that states, 'No, we are NOT crazy!! This is real!'"

Tell me what you think of the book!

Dear Natalie,

I have a 6 year old daughter and live in Dubai. We are in Winnipeg Canada for a one month vacation and needed some advice. My daughter is a healthy child who was born premature by a month and was IUGR at birth. She spend a month in the NICU. She has a small dimple on her lower back. She is a little clumsy but otherwise healthy.

Now her issues are she has mild speech delay, she gets very uncomfortable in a swing or merry go round, has mild focus and attention issues, talk in a cartoonish type of voice, sometimes reverses letter & numbers both reading and writing, very shy.

I would really appreciate if you can suggest which program will be good for her - ILS or FORBRAIN or TOMATIS. Please advise as I am confused.
