Our Sensory World.
Liesman, C.; Barringer, M. D.
The booklet explores the role of sensory experiences in the severely developmentally disabled child. Developmental theory is addressed, followed by specific activity suggestions (broken down into developmental levels) for developing tactile sense, auditory sense, gustatory (taste) sense, olfactory sense, visual sense, and kinesthetic sense. Reference materials address cognitive mapping (a way of determining sensory strengths and weaknesses), suggestions for drool control, and ways to deal with tactile defensive responses. (CL)
