Description

  • Perigee Books
  • 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 ADHD, among other topics.
