About the Author
Michele Griffin is a pediatric occupational therapist. While working as a therapist, she was intrigued by the children who were ‘extra-sensitive’. They often demonstrated strong dislikes for haircuts, loud noises, tags in shirts, seams on socks and food with lumps. Sensitive children or those with ‘sensory issues’ are challenging for parents to rear! Therefore, these children and their parents were the inspiration for this book. She hopes this book will help foster communication, tolerance and understanding between parent and child.
