Ten Special Needs Books That I Have Read

  1. Too Loud, Too Bright, Too Fast, Too Tight by Sharon Heller. Visit the author’s website and read an excerpt from the book.
  2. Sensational Kids by Lucy Jane Miller, PhD, OTR. You can read more about the author and her foundation.
  3. The Out-of-Sync Child by Carol Stock Kranowitz. Visit the author’s website to read more about this and other books.
  4. The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun by Carol Stock Kranowitz. Visit the author’s website to read more about this and her other books.
  5. Autism Spectrum Disorders by Chantal Sicile-Kira and Temple Grandin. Visit Chantal at her website. Visit Temple Grandin’s website.
  6. The Sensory-Sensitive Child: Practical Solutions for Out-of-Bounds Behavior by Karen A. Smith and Karen R. Gouze. I searched the Internet for an author website and could not find one. You can visit Amazon to read a book description and several reviews.
  7. All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome by Kathy Hoopmann. I searched the Internet for an author website for this book as well. Here is a link to the book on Amazon. I borrowed this book from the library a long time ago, but it was one that I will always remember. It was so good. It is a very easy read.
  8. The Kid-Friendly ADHD & Autism Cookbook, Updated and Revised: The Ultimate Guide to the Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Diet by Pamela J. Compart and Dana Laake. This is another book where I could not find an author or book website. This book has an amazing collection of recipes for use if you or your child is following the GFCF diet.
  9. Raising Your Spirited Child Rev Ed: A Guide for Parents Whose Child Is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent, and Energetic by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka. You can visit the author’s website and read more about this book and her other books.

    1. Hi Joy,

      Thank you for stopping by today. I read a lot of curriculum reviews back in April before I chose my materials. Have fun choosing your materials.


  1. I have a couple more for you.
    Driven To Distraction : Recognizing and Coping with Attention Deficit Disorder from Childhood Through Adulthood by Edward M. Hallowell. Very interesting because he discusses cases of adults who are diagnosed ADD/ADHD and looking back over their childhoods and seeing how it affected them all through life.
    In Jesse’s Shoes, by Beverly Lewis- a child’s picture book about a girl with an older brother who has special needs. Very sweet book. We love it.

    1. Hi Dawn,

      Thank you very much for the great book recommendations. I have heard of Driven to Distraction. I will need to add it to my list. In Jesse’s Shoes sounds really good.


  2. I love this list. I have read or own the first 8 books on that list. One book that helped our family incredibly was “Why can’t my child behave?” by Jane Hersey, read the first chapters here http://www.feingold.org/why1.html . These books above not only helped me understand my child, but many others and adults I know.

  3. Giiiiirl….you know how much I love your great lists and resources!!! I have a friend that I am going to send this post to. I just know that some of these books will be a blessing to her.

    Thank you so much for joining the Hip Homeschool Hop today.

    1. Hi Sue,

      Thanks for visiting my blog, it is always a pleasure to have you stop by. I am glad you love the list. I have another great list of special needs books coming up next week, so make sure you check back.


  4. One special needs book that I read last year and learned much from was
    “When the Brain Can’t Hear : Unraveling the Mystery of Auditory Processing Disorder ” by Teri Bellis

    right now, I am reading “The Daily 5” and “The Cafe book” both by two teachers- written for the classroom, but I am finding much I can adapt to my homeschool for working with 5 students and trying to further their literacy stretching…

    I’m over from the hop, and enjoying my visit!

    1. Hi Jenny,

      Thank you so much for visiting. I have never heard of that book. It looks very interesting.

      I popped over to your blog. You have such a beautiful header. I love it.
