About the Book:
This is Gabriel Making Sense of School provides a look into the challenges children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) face in the classroom. This easy to read and beautifully illustrated picture book gives teachers, parents and students a better understanding of all seven senses, how they are each affected at school and what kinds of accommodations are necessary to help children with SPD become learning sensations!
This is a perfect book for elementary students to share with their classmates to help them understand about the ways their senses may work differently and why they might need different objects or strategies to cope with being in school every day. Each of the eight senses is briefly explained in kid-friendly language, followed by examples of why this could be a problem for a child with sensory processing disorder and what types of things could help make it better.
The book is short enough to be read aloud to a class in one sitting and easy enough to read for most second or third graders. I would highly recommend it to elementary school teachers and therapists, or even as a great book for a parent to come in and read to a class.
