I am thrilled to announce community member and SPD advocate Rachel Schneider has just released her first book. Rachel, who has Sensory Processing Disorder herself, takes a look at sensory issues from an adult perspective and is a must read for sure!
Making Sense: A Guide to Sensory Issues
Our senses! Thanks to them, our brains are constantly flooded with information about the world around us. What may surprise you is that we’re not all wired the same way, and some of us are unable to understand exactly what we’re sensing. People with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), a newly identified neurological condition, as well as those with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), are frequently misunderstood by others when they over- or under-react to sounds, sights, smells, tastes, touch, movement, balance, and feelings within their bodies.
In this guide, mental health counselor, SPD community advocate, and sensory adult Rachel S. Schneider, M.A., MHC, helps us to make sense of sensory issues. Whether you’re someone with sensory issues, a loved one supporting a sensory person, a professional, or someone that is curious about unusual and complex sensory experiences, this guide will answer your questions about life with sensory processing differences.

Carol Stock Kranowitz, author of The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up (affiliate), wrote: Digging for information about adults with SPD? Eureka! You ve struck gold! In this gem of a book, Rachel will gently, wisely, humorously help you unearth and sift through the “bits and pieces, the particularities and the behaviors of your sensory life. With extrasensory grace gained through her own experiences growing up with SPD, and in her sparkling writing style, she will help you at last to understand your sensory issues and how to address them.
