The Out-of-Sync Child broke new ground by identifying Sensory Processing Disorder, a common but frequently misdiagnosed problem in which the central nervous system misinterprets messages from the senses. This newly revised edition features additional information from recent research on vision and hearing deficits, motor skill problems, nutrition and picky eaters, ADHA, autism, and other related disorders.

"The Out-of-Sync Child has become the parents' bible to [Sensory Processing Disorder]."

"This book is great! It is a real contribution to the parents of the many children who are so hard to understand. It will let parents off the hook of blaming themselves... and will help them get on to the job of addressing the child's underlying difficulties."
--T. Berry Brazelton, MD, founder, Brazelton Foundation, Children's Hospital, Boston

"Warm and wise, this book will bring both hope and practical help to parents who wonder why their kid doesn't 'fit in.'"
--Jane M. Healy, learning specialist and author of Your Child's Growing Mind

This book has been so informative and has educated me in understanding what is actually happening to my child.



Excellent resource


This was highly recommended by our therapist and I am finding this book a great resource for our family in helping understand and manage our child with Aspergers and SPD.

Great book


I am loving this book. Simple and practical and extremely relevant. Very informative yet easy to understand. This book offers gentle advice and relevant, helpful information. I love that it makes me feel like there is hope and help for my SPD child.



Insightful. Helpful. Simple.


When your child has SPD the most difficult thing is to explain to people exactly whats different about them and why they react differently to other children. Throughtout the chapters of information are simple examples of everyday children compared to "normal" children. Just reading the comparison tables is insightful before you even tackle the whole book.



Very Informative


Every parent of a child with Autism should read this book, opened up my eyes to what Sensory Processing Disorder really is and how it affects people.

Great read helped immenseley


The book is a good reference source for SPD You can discover more about your child You can lend or recommend book to 0thers


An excellent resource


An excellent companion book to "Raising a Sensory Smart Child". Although these two books cover similar ground, reading both of them helps build a more complete picture of the issues surrounding Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).

Gives insight into the misunderstood


I found the book is useful to refer to in sections rather than to read the whole thing through at once, gives some interesting tips to be put in place on the spur of the moment when you really need them. May only be relevant if you can identify similar traits in your child.
