"Teresa Garland has captured the essece of using the occupation of play to enrich the lives of the children we all adore. Having several years of experience working with children diagnosed with Autism, and sensory disorders, I have a solid appreciation for effective practice.

Her book encompasses techniques draped in the strongest aspects of sensory gross motor, and emotional approaches. It is a beautiful arrangement that allows the reader to apply aspects of occupational therapy, and related fields, to simplstic and enjoyable activities. Teresa continues to contribute to our field by translating and demystifying therapeutic strategies to everyday life!"

"Anyone involved in the life of a child who have autism or a sensory modulation disorder will treasure this resource. Ms. Garland has done the heavy lifting to produce a detailed, accessible guide with fresh and practical sensory activities. Especially helpful are her recommendations for grading activities from very simple to more complex. These activities will not only revitalize interventions for therapists but also equip motivated do-it-yourself parents to engage in sensory learning with their children."
