Many children, especially those with autism-related problems, struggle with sensory integration - problems in the detection and/or processing of environmental or bodily events. Christian is a 12-year-old who has suffered from both aspects of sensory integration problems since birth. Following his experiences as a young child, Chara and Chara relate Christian's painful reactions to touch and extreme sensitivity to temperature, noise, taste and texture. Through detection, diagnosis, therapy and treatment, this book looks at the battles, frustrations and triumphs familiar to those with (or caring for those with) sensory integration problems. Sensory Smarts offers real solutions, such as a sensory sensitivity scale, a behavioral rating chart, and a list of helpful organizations, as well as genuine hope of overcoming sensory integration problems. With much of it written from the perspective of a child, this richly illustrated book encourages children to work with adults in overcoming their sensory difficulties. Based on mainstream psychological theories, this book will be indispensable to those grappling with, or trying to raise awareness of, sensory problems in childhood.

Creating Sensory Smart Classrooms introduces educators to the foundations of sensory processing and offers tools to meet the wide variety of sensory needs in each classroom. This comprehensive handbook helps readers understand the neurobiology behind sensory processing and regulation issues, recognize when a student is over- or under-stimulated, and integrate different sensory inputs into the school environment. Practical and accessible chapters foster an understanding of how sensory processing influences behaviors in the classroom and how protective relationships, combined with sensory strategies, positively influence students' regulation for improved learning outcomes. Packed with useful examples, this is essential reading for teachers looking to develop the knowledge and skills they need to design sensory smart environments that support ALL learners.

Equipping clinicians with 'sensory smarts' to treat their child clients. Sensory processing disorder (SPD) manifests in a range of troubling childhood behaviors, from intense reactions to noises, smells, or the feel of clothes. This book explains what SPD is, how to recognize it in kids, and how to work with parents and other professionals to most effectively treat it.

Strawberry & Cracker are twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) who live with their grandmother. In The Twins' Sensory Smarts, Strawberry and Cracker emphasize their sensory challenges and ways they have learned to cope with the problem. Touch, smells, textures, sounds, and lights, affect children with sensory issues causing negative behavioral responses. Having strategies in place to lessen the effect of sensory overload is vital to a less stressful day. The twins' strategies go from obvious to whimsical, sometimes involving their grandma, and her dog, Thunder. Whatever it takes to reduce the overload is okay with the twins. More titles in the series, Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, are The School Day, Fidget!, Advocate!, The Twins Learn Of Their Disorder, The Twins Cause Havoc, The Birthday Bash, and The Meltdown. Suitable for children ages 5-12 years of age.

The second edition of this best-selling book provides an introduction to virtually all aspects of the technology of composite materials as used in aeronautical design and structure. The text discusses important differences in the technology of composites from that of metals-intrinsic substantive differences and their implications for manufacturing processes, structural design procedures, and in-service performance of the materials, particularly regarding the cause and nature of damage that may be sustained.

Analytical formulations are developed to account for the coupled mechanical, electrical, and thermal response of piezoelectric composite materials. The coupled response is captured at the material level through the thermopiezoelectric constitutive equations and leads to the inherent capability to model both the sensory and active responses of piezoelectric materials. A layerwise laminate theory is incorporated to provide more accurate analysis of the displacements, strains, stresses, electric fields, and thermal fields through-the-thickness. Thermal effects which arise from coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch, pyroelectric effects, and temperature dependent material properties are explicitly accounted for in the formulation. Corresponding finite element formulations are developed for piezoelectric beam, plate, and shell elements to provide a more generalized capability for the analysis of arbitrary piezoelectric composite structures. The accuracy of the current formulation is verified with comparisons from published experimental data and other analytical models. Additional numerical studies are also conducted to demonstrate additional capabilities of the formulation to represent the sensory and active behaviors. A future plan of experimental studies is provided to characterize the high temperature dynamic response of piezoelectric composite materials.
