Publisher's Summary

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.

ok, not great

it was a struggle to listen to. I was hoping for more information on how to help my child, but most of the book was just describing all the different types of out of sync children, which almost every child would fit into one of those descriptions. The narrator was too monotone.

This one took me a while to get through it, with starts and stops along the way, couple trips back few pages, here and there.

Overall, it was brilliant!

Ray detailed, very helpful.

very detailed. extremely helpful in understanding the diagnosis, etiology, evaluation and treatment of sensory processing disorder and its many forms. lots of lists, which makes it a little bit less conducive to an audiobook.

Autism Mom

I wish I listened to this book 3 years ago when my son was first diagnosed. It explains so much in so much detail. I would recommend it to be the first book any parent should read when their child is first diagnosed.

Limited explanations of the courses

There are some parts of this book that will give helpful insights for many parents. However the book fails to look at other significant causes of motor issues such as the effects of trauma, soliders with PTSD often have the exact behaviours described in this book. See the Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk for more detail.

Also the suggestion that if it is true sensory processing disorder it can be "fixed" within a few weeks or months of therapy may be very unrealistic.
