Thomas McKean, Future Horizons, 2001.
One of my personal favourites as I have an extremely soft spot for autism spectrum disorders. Although extreme, if you want to understand what sensory defensiveness really means, this book will give you a level of understanding and insight that is hard to acquire from the “in-sync” sensory spectrum.

This is such a practical and easy way to understand what it means to live with the challenges of raising a child on the autism spectrum, while still having to deal with life
and all its challenges. A very handy book to hand to family or friends to improve understanding. Can be ordered by mailing
