How do you feel when you bite into a pear... wear a feather boa... stand in a noisy auditorium... or look for a friend in a crowd? Living Sensationally explains how people's individual sensory patterns affect the way we react to everything that happens to us throughout the day. Some people will adore the grainy texture of a pear, while others will shudder at the idea of this texture in their mouths. Touching a feather boa will be fun and luxurious to some, and others will bristle at the idea of all those feathers brushing on the skin. Noisy, busy environments will energize some people, and will overwhelm others. The author identifies four major sensory types: Seekers; Bystanders; Avoiders and Sensors. Readers can use the questionnaire to find their own patterns and the patterns of those around them, and can benefit from practical sensory ideas for individuals, families and businesses. Armed with the information in Living Sensationally, people will be able to pick just the right kind of clothing, job and home and know why they are making such choices.


It explains how our individual behaviours in every day life can be related to the way we respond to sensory experiences. Dunn begins by giving the tools to understand sensory patterns; encouraging the reader to relate the information to themselves, their friends, family and colleagues. The sensory pattern questionnaire enables the reader to identify which sensory pattern most applies to them, be it seeker, avoider, sensor or bystander... Throughout the book, practical tips for sensational living are provided about how to adjust living situations to meet everyone's sensory needs to create a more harmonious living, working and leisure space. An easy read for those who want to increase their understanding of themselves and others through the senses. -- British Journal of Occupational Therapy Dr Dunn nicely frames sensory issues in the context of what we all experience regardless of ability or disability -- Journal of Autism & Developmental Disorders Whether the reader is an experienced practitioner, a caregiver of someone with sensory issues or just an average individual who happens to cut all the tags out of her shirts, this book speaks in entertaining and enlightening ways.
