Press Reviews

  • Erica Schuppe OTR/L, NMT Phase 1 certification holder via Neurosequential Network and Yoga Instructor

    Marti Smith makes challenging subjects easier to digest, and the ideas included in the book are implementable today in your home, school, clinic, or community setting. As a trauma-responsive occupational therapist and adoptive parent this book is what I needed a decade ago!
  • Michael Remole MA, LCPC, NCC, I/ECHMHC, Founder of Gateway Family Services of Illinois & Rising Tide Conference

    As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I have found Sensory Healing After Developmental Trauma to be an invaluable resource for gaining a profound understanding of the intricate nature of behaviors and the neuroscience behind developmental trauma. To promote healing and overall well-being in individuals impacted by trauma, it is essential to adopt a biologically and developmentally grounded approach. The KALMAR app serves as a powerful tool in implementing this approach, providing a comprehensive treatment framework that addresses all aspects of a client's life. By incorporating Marti Smith's insights, professionals can enhance their effectiveness in assisting individuals affected by complex trauma, facilitating the development of a more integrated and cohesive brain.
  • Kim Barthel, OTR Relationship Matters

    Sensory Healing after Developmental Trauma eloquently describes the impact of developmental trauma on the sensory systems and offers a compassionate and clear pathway to the possibility of healing. Marti Smith helps the reader empathically feel the impact of trauma on a child's mind and body while describing neurobiological processes in ways that are easily understood. A highlight of this book is that the offerings of sequential sensory interventions are user-friendly and doable for parents, teachers and clinicians alike.
