The Goodenoughs Get in Sync, a "chapter book," geared for kids eight and up, tells the tale of five family members and their naughty dog (each with a different sensory processing challenge), and how they get in sync after a tough day.  The Goodenoughs explain what they do to function successfully and how readers, too, can enjoy sensory-motor activities at home or school.  The unique book design puts the basic story line in large print for younger children to read or hear.  Explanations of sensory processing issues are woven throughout the story in regular size type for proficient readers to linger over at leisure.
