Hi People.

I'm planning on buying the book "The Out Of Sync Child" by Carol Stock Kranowitz as the short blurb on it sounds like me and it's known to be an excellent book on Sensory Processing Disorder (Sensory Integration Dysfunction)

What I want to know is has anyone else read it and if so what do you think of the book.

I've read the book and attended one of her workshops and IMHO are both excellent! It came strongly recommended by my son's speech therapist and OT. We've implemented some of the ideas the book gives and it has helped my son immensely!
With that being said, it is geared more toward little kids, but you might be able to find things you can utilize or tweek to make it work more for you.

Thanks, because I don't live in the states I'll have to order it from ( and have it shipped to Australia.

Excellent book.

I believe there's a follow up entitled "The Out of Sync Child Has Fun."

I'd recommend it as it outlines different activities children would benefit who have various sensory issues.

For example: Did you know that jumping on a trampoline actually stimulates language articulation? So if you have a child with gross motor challenges AND is language delayed, try out the trampoline .. it's like killing two birds with one stone! lol
