The Out-of-Sync Child


The groundbreaking book that explains Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) – and presents a drug-free approach that offers hope for parents – now revised and updated.  Does your child exhibit…
Over-responsivity – or under-responsivity – to touch or movement?

A child with SPD may be a “sensory avoider,” withdrawing from tough, refusing to wear certain clothing, avoiding active games – or he may be a “sensory disregarder,” needing a jump-start to get moving.
Over-responsivity – or under-responsivity – to sounds, sights, taste or smell?  She may cover her ears or eyes, be a picky eater, or seem oblivious to sensory cues.

Cravings for sensation?  The “sensory seeker” may crave sensations, constantly playing in mud, cramming food in his mouth, seeking movement.
Poor sensory discrimination?  She may not sense the difference between objects or experiences – unaware of what she’s holding unless she looks, and unable to sense when she’s falling or how to catch herself.

Unusually high or low activity level?  The child may be constantly on the go – wearing out everyone around him – or move slowly and tire easily, showing little interest in the world.
Problems with posture or motor co-ordination?  He may slouch, move awkwardly, seem careless or accident-prone.

These are often the first clues to Sensory Processing Disorder – a common, but frequently misdiagnosed, problem in which the central nervous system misinterprets messages from the senses.  The Out-of-Sync Child offers comprehensive, clear information for parents and professionals – and a drug-free treatment approach for children.

This revised edition includes new sections on vision and hearing, picky eaters, and co-existing disorders such as autism and Asperger’s syndrome, among other topics.

“A real contribution to the parents of the many children who are so hard to understand.”
-    T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.
