Think about our senses being like cups and everything we see, hear, feel, smell, touch, and taste as we move about is like water going into our cups.

Some of our cups might be big and some might be small. Whether big or small, we like it best when our cup is filled enough so that it’s just right for us! We are all different. We need just the right amount of information to feel good!

Help your child aged 7+ think about, explore and develop ways to manage sensory overload and feeling under stimulated with quirky cartoons that visually illustrate the approach. Sections on each of the eight senses (including your internal ‘body signals’ like hunger) feature noticing and knowledge-building activities to help kids get their own, unique, senses cups feeling ‘just right’ for them. Get going on some sensory experiments!

Rose Manon Trabaud, age 12
I think this is amazing. There were definitions which really help me understand and inclusive activities to try. I like that it is interactive and 'we' makes it sound like everyone is in a team. I love the illustrations because they help get the message across. I now know that my proprioceptive cup is huge!
Kim Griffin, Occupational Therapist, author of Success with Sensory Supports
The idea of sensory cups is not new, but this book is an extremely clear resource to help children (and the adults around them) understand their sensory preferences. It's jam packed with great experiments and is a lot of fun to read. I'd highly recommend it for school aged children and teens who want to understand their sensory world.
Lauren Brukner, MS, OTR/L Pediatric OT, Author of Awesome and in Control Book Series with Hachette Book Group/Jessica Kingsley Publishers
This book is filled with simple and easy-to-implement sensory strategies with readily-available supplies in the home and academic settings, allowing for improved self-regulation and participation.
