Synopses & Reviews
NEWLY REVISED AND UPDATED
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.
Children who have been labeled with words such as difficult, clumsy, and inattentive may actually be suffering from the often misdiagnosed Sensory Integration Disorder. This breakthrough guide, written by an expert in the field, explains how SI Dysfunction can be confused with ADD, learning disabilities, and other problems. The author helps parents recognize the problem and offers a drug-free treatment approach.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 312-314) and index.
