The Out-of-Sync Child...Review

About the book:
Difficult. Picky. Oversensitive. Clumsy. Unpredictable. Inattentive. Children who have been labeled with words such as these may actually be suffering from the often misdiagnosed Sensory Integration Disorder. This break-through guide, written by an expert in the field, explains how SI Dysfunction can be confused with ADD, learning disabilities, and other problems. The author helps parents recognize the problem and offers a drug-free treatment approach.

A fabulous book. The Occupational Therapist who evaluated our son recommended this book. We went to the bookstore, read the back of it and said, "Wow, that's J." This book was essential in our Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) journey.

There is so much information here that is easy to understand and easily accessed. The explanations are good. There are suggestions and ideas on how to understand and help your child cope with the different sensory issues he might have. Understanding your child and finding resources and tools to help him is essential and this book is terrific for that. It's a book you refer to again and again.

An all around great resource for your personal library, especially if you have a child in the SPD spectrum.

I read my own personal copy, but you can purchase your own copy here.
