Review by LB Sedlacek

Septuagenarian by Sherry Quan LeeSherry Quan Lee has put together an unsettling yet brilliant juxtaposition of sweet and sad, love and anger that will hit you right at your emotional core. The collection Septuagenarian feels almost like heartfelt portraits of pain, disconnection, and strength all rolled into one.

Her poems, though, delve deeper beyond emotion presenting lines that achieve poignancy with their build-up. Context is important with any poem and Quan Lee achieves that. Her poems are fulfilling and real.

Her approach is straightforward. Poems examining her life till now offer personal and compelling details. She invites us to participate in her struggle, her internal voyages throughout the years. Her descriptions are vivid and they allow us to see beyond the setting into her internal strife.

Each poem stands alone, but each poem complements the other poem before it. Same with each section of the book. The author doesn’t let you forget that she is human and willing to bare her soul within her verses.

It’s a well-crafted book. Her words will seep into your heart and then some.

When the inner ear's ability to sense sound and movement breaks down during early life, there can be wide-ranging developmental consequences. Sound Advice integrates the personal stories of a pediatric occupational therapist with current science on why some children struggle to learn and adapt. Sound Advice explores these often therapeutically ignored senses as the gateway to the brain. Treating them can help children with SPD, autism and ADHD more easily connect with the world around them. Take "Sound Advice" on:

  • The hidden functions of hearing in paying attention
  • The "background" sensation of the vestibular system
  • How glitches in sensory systems can derail normal development
  • Developmentally-effective therapies and interventions
  • Empowering yourself to support your child's way of learning about the world

"When I began my SPD journey with my daughter, there was almost nothing for parents who knew their child struggled, but had nowhere to turn to for answers. Over the years, after many other parents shared their stories and fabulous resources like Robin's book, the world of SPD isn't a mystery anymore. Including Sound Advice on your SPD reference shelf is a must."
-- Chynna Laird, author of The Sensory Processing Diet: One Mom's Path of Creating Brain, Body and Nutritional Health for Children with SPD

"Why does your child struggle? In her highly informative and readable book, Robin Abbott uses her extensive clinical experience and keen powers of observation to help you look into your child's mind, sense the world the way he or she does, and, with this new understanding, seek out the most effective therapies."
--Susan R. Barry, PhD, author of Fixing My Gaze and Coming to Our Senses, Professor Emeritus of Biology and Neuroscience, Mount Holyoke College

"A book I definitely recommend to all parents and professionals who want to know why sound and the auditory system play such key roles in the development of a child's self-awareness and motor, learning and social skills. Sound Advice is an accessible, engaging and practical book written by someone at the front line of helping kids with an obvious sense of care. A much-needed text at a time when sound-based therapies are becoming more popular while still little understood. A book for your must-read list."
--Paul Madaule, author of When Listening Comes Alive
