by Jackie Brown Otr/l

Paperback, 2020



In Meet the Overs and the Unders, your child will be introduced to two different families, the Overs and the Unders, as they explore the eight different sensory systems and their over- or under-reactions to different sensory input.

Beautiful illustrations paired with just the right questions, this book will help open the lines of communication to start talking more easily about sensory processing with elementary school-age children.
Why Your Child Will Love This Book:
Colorful, eye-catching, and fun illustrations.
Explains sensory processing in a way that is easy for children to understand.
It helps children easily identify their own sensory style by deciding which character is most like them.
As a clinician, I have found the most important part of addressing sensory challenges is to first identify whether a child is over-responsive or under-responsive.
Over-responsive (or over-reactive) individuals need LESS sensory information than most others. For example, if too many things are going on around them, they may try to run, hide, or have a meltdown.

Under-responsive (or under-reactive) individuals need MORE sensory information than most others. For example, they may not respond if their name is called or notice when they bump into someone else.

A child's ability to make sense of their sensory processing style is an invaluable skill.

Discovering whether someone is over- or under-responsive helps determine what sensory tools will best meet their sensory needs to help them feel more comfortable and confident.

The good news is, with this interactive tool, children will now have help visualizing different areas of sensory processing, to help them understand that they are not alone and that they are able to find tools to help them throughout their days.
