Tools for Infants
Tools for Infants is a great addition to Henry OT's easy-to-use "sensory tools" materials acclaimed by therapists, educators, child care providers, and parents.
Diana A. Henry, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, Maureen Kane-Wineland, PhD, OT/L and Susan Swindeman, OTR/L, have co-authored the new Tools for Infants book. It's a user-friendly guide filled with sensory-based strategies to help promote optimal development in infants. The sensory-based strategies or "tools" in this book are designed to help infants feel "sensory-safe" in their daily activities and routines. Sensory-based strategies stem from sensory integration and sensory processing principles. They can be used by parents, adult family members, caregivers, day care workers, early intervention providers, therapists, pediatricians and other medical or educational professionals who care for infants. These "tools" may be used in center-based facilities as well as natural environments, such as home, day care and community settings.
" Tools for Infants is a comprehensive, sensory-based resource book, well-grounded in developmental research. The authors emphasize the importance of learning to respond to infants' signals in sensitive, caring, and appropriate ways to strengthen attachment. The book is full of practical advice on how to establish well balanced daily activities to foster sensory exploration, motor skills, and good sleeping and eating habits. The book is a must-have for tired parents of young babies. It is also an excellent resource book for professionals working in early intervention."--Georgia DeGangi, PhD, OTR, FAOTA, clinical psychologist and occupational therapist at Integrated Therapy Services, Kensington, MD
