Kids with sensory issues have many hurdles in life. For children with sensory processing disorder (SPD), going to the dentist is particularly daunting. Marla Roth-Fisch, a mom of a child with sensory processing disorder, has just written and illustrated a second children’s book about her character, Sensitive Sam. This new book, published in October 2014 to Celebrate National Sensory Awareness Month, is titled “Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist”.

Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist  is not only a great book to be read and discussed with kids at home or at school, it is also a resource for parents and other caregivers with practical advice from dentists and orthodontists specializing in children with special needs, and stories and tips from parents who have kids with sensory issues.

If you have a child with autism or one who has sensory challenges, you will appreciate the beautifully illustrated interactive story of Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist. It is packed with information and strategies to make visits to the dentist for your child easier. Marla Roth-Fisch’s first book, Sensitive Sam, won the 2010 Preferred Choice Award by Creative Child Magazine.

Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist by Marla Roth-Fisch - Helps Kids with Sensory Issues

In “Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist,” Marla Roth-Fisch takes families on a journey to the dentist office with Sensitive Sam, a young boy whose sensory challenges make the sights, smells, sounds, touches, tastes and movements of a dental visit overwhelming to his senses. By reading the interactive story describing Sam’s visit to his dentist with their children prior to the appointment, children know what to expect and remain calmer during their own appointments.

“Now, finally, there is a book for children that moms and dads can read to and with their child at home before they go to the dentist. I highly recommend this entertaining and pragmatic approach to increasing the comfort of children with SPD when visiting their dentists,” said Lucy Jane Miller, Ph.D., OTR, founder of the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation and STAR (Sensory Therapies and Research) Center.

Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist” offers practical advice from dentists (including pediatric dentists), and orthodontists specializing in children with special needs, such as brushing and flossing tips. Parents and sensory specialists also share stories of best and worst case scenarios, and tips on finding the right dental office for your family. “Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist” can be ordered through Future Horizons, Inc., and other booksellers.
