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.

A storybook about special needs siblings to engage the whole family! My daughter, Jordhan, has the unique position of not only being a middle child, but a middle child among siblings with special needs. This story touches on the important contributions Jordhan makes to our family, especially on the days when she doesn?t think so. We need more stories for siblings of special needs children. This is my gift to each of them to show how much we appreciate their very important role in the family. In the book, I have outlined activities that siblings can do on their own, or with parents and/or siblings. To make the most of the message given in the book, as well as from the activities provided, it is my hope that siblings and family members will:Have a tool that will help make siblings of special needs children more visible in the family unit;Give a voice to siblings that represents how real their feelings and concerns are, even when they aren?t always able verbalize those things;Help to provide a greater level of understanding by strengthening communication, patience and respect among family members;Show that there is so much more than the labels these families are given and offer some insight into how they can learn to advocate for their children; andRemember that each of us brings something beautiful and unique with us into the world that we can learn from, and teach others about. And that?s so powerful."When you are a sibling of a child with special needs, especially one whose life can be dictated by sensory issues from their environment, you often learn to "live in the moment." In this validating family book, Mia's feelings are explored. Often siblings have to sacrifice or alter their day because of the needs of their brother or sister ?whether it be leaving a fun activity to go to therapy or dealing with a meltdown that affects the whole family. Don?t Rush Me explores these situations in a way that teaches siblings that their way-too-familiar rollercoaster of feelings is normal and that they are not alone in them." --Diane M. Renna, author ofÿMeghan's World: The Story of One Girl's Triumph Over SPD "Using colorful illustrations to deliver her message and spot-on dialogue, any parent or child can identify with the situations Chynna Laird presents. Written from the perspective of a typical child, one understands the patience and assistance she willingly offers to her siblings with sensory processing difficulties. This is a sweet, lovely book that cheers family relationships and accepts individual differences in others." --Laurie Zelinger, PhD, ABPP, RPT-S, Board Certified Psychologist, author ofÿPlease Explain "Terrorism" to Me From Loving Healing Press www.LHPress.com
