This full-colour, the photographic workbook is designed for adults and children to read together and explains the physical reasons a child may become emotionally overwhelmed by some daily routines involving touch. The workbook format allows them to explore their own feelings about their touch-related sensitivities, helping them to feel supported.
Do you know a child who hates the feel of certain items of clothing? This is a child's perspective on a largely unrecognized condition called tactile defensiveness, a physical condition that causes hypersensitivity to certain touch sensations.
Intended for adults and children to read together, the illustrated book explains the reasons a child may become emotionally overwhelmed by daily routines such as putting on clothing, socks, and shoes. The workbook format allows children to express and explore their own feelings through drawings or words, in order to explain their misunderstood behavior.
A perfect book for children, families, teachers, therapists, and other professionals dealing with tactile defensiveness suitable to be read with children aged 4 and above.
