Industry Reviews

"The Out-of-Sync Child--the best book ever written on Sensory Processing Disorder--has been the salvation of mothers everywhere. This sequel will help them even more."--Marguerite Kelly, syndicated family columnist and coauthor, The Mother's Almanac "Having fun isn't something that just happens for most children with severe sensory issues. Everyday activities can be a struggle and can cause much frustration and sadness for both the child and his/her family. The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun is a 'must have' for parents and teachers. They will start changing lives with these simple ideas that work with ALL children--and many adults, too."--Laurie Renke, Mother, national coordinator, DSI Parent Connections"Carol opened the eyes and hearts of caregivers with The Out-of-Sync Child, allowing children who were once afraid of movement, who are overly sensitive to noise and touch, to grow and emerge from their cocoons of sensory dysfunction. Now, in The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun, she gives parents and teachers a cookbook of activities to orchestrate a new hum, a new rhythm and a common vibration to those who once were adrift. This book is like having a therapist whispering in your ear, 'try this now, and this, and now this...'"--Rondalyn V. Whitney, MOT, OTR, author, Bridging the Gap: Raising a Child with Nonverbal Learning Disorder

"Oh, the pleasures your children will gleefully enjoy with any one of the activities in this marvelous book. OTs, parents and teachers, get ready to have fun, too, as you get in sync with your out-of-sync child through these important and clinically credible methods of attaining and retaining new life skills."--Aubrey Lande MS, OTR, vice-president, Occupational Therapy Association of Colorado
