International Book Award Winner, Arnie and His School Tools: Simple Sensory Solutions to Build Success is an illustrated children's book about an exuberant little boy who had difficulty paying attention in class and doing his school work until he was given the tools to accommodate his sensory needs. Written from Arnie's point of view, the book uses simple language to describe some of the sensory tools and strategies he uses at school and home to help him achieve a more optimal level of alertness and performance. This book creates an environment that is accepting of students with sensory difficulties, including many on the autism spectrum. Occupational therapists, teachers, and parents will find this book an engaging way to introduce elementary students to basic sensory tools used to help children focus in classroom settings such as fidgets, chewy pencil toppers, and weighted vests. Additional resources are provided at the end of the book, including definitions of sensory processing and sensory modulation disorder, suggested discussion questions, and lists of related books and websites.
