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 touch, 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 craver" never gets enough of certain sensations, e.g., messy play, spicy food, noisy action, and perpetual 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 coordination? 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 coexisting disorders such as autism and Asperger's syndrome, among other topics. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Sensory processing disorder (SPD) has been likened to a "neurological traffic jam," and occurs when sensory information is not received or transmitted appropriately within the brain enabling a child to organize, assimilate and make sense of the world. This disorder leads to a spectrum of social, emotional, and behavioral problems that can be expressed in a variety of ways. But what can parents, caregivers, teachers, and professionals do to help children with SPD? They can read The Sensory Processing Anthology which brings much-needed support to adults, children and families dealing with this disorder. This unique book provides in-depth descriptions of the SPD types with accompanying strategies to help the sensory child succeed in their everyday tasks. The first book of its kind to provide hundreds of strategies for dealing with a sensory child's behavior, it also illuminates the "whys" behind the befuddling behavior. SPD is presented in a holistic manner with dysfunction described not by each individual sense, but by each type of disorder. Written by a parent of sensory children with technical oversight from occupational therapists, developmental optometrists, audiologists, and mental health professionals, this book is an invaluable resource for providing the calm, loving, and empathic environment needed to help a sensory child develop, learn and succeed.
