Another Mom in music class recommended this book because my child has been sensitive to noise. Well bingo! This book was very enlightening. Now not only do I know what some of the issues are I also know some of her coping mechanisms... Spinning, standing on her head, jumping on the bed etc. knowing is half the battle. ( )

This book was a godsend. Given to me by a stranger who seemed to know something I didn't.
Helped me and my pediatrician diagnose my son.

A more medically oriented, less hands-on approach to sensory defensiveness, but more oriented towards unofficially diagnosing the level of the problem than are other books related. Encyclopedic References, and suggestions in dealing with medical professionals. ( )

This book does what it is supposed to. I learned just enough from it to, I think, prevent one of our children from becoming a child with true sensory issues. Since we home schooled I was with our chlidren all the time and able to continually work on and evaluate such things. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399531653, Paperback)

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.
