Arnie and His School Tools: Simple Sensory Solutions That Build Success is a fun and colorful children's book, the author, a school-based occupational therapist introduces the reader to a little boy named Arnie.
Arnie is just like his friends in a lot of ways, but he is also different in one major way. Arnie is a "MOVER". He cannot sit still. Arnie used to get in trouble at school for fidgeting and getting distracted often. Luckily, with the help of his mom and dad, Arnie's teachers have come up with a list of tools to help him concentrate and be successful at home and school. Some of these tools involve wearing headphones to drown out extraneous noises, eating certain foods to help him concentrate, and jumping on a trampoline to drain energy.
Children with sensory processing disorders will love to meet Arnie, and family members and therapists will take away some useful techniques to share with their own Arnie's. For ages 4-8. (Softcover; 47 pages.)
