What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“The Out-of-Sync Child—the best book ever written on Sensory Processing Disorder—has been the salvation of mothers everywhere. This sequel will help them even more.”
—Marguerite Kelly, syndicated family columnist and coauthor, The Mother’s Almanac

“Having fun isn’t something that just happens for most children with severe sensory issues. Everyday activities can be a struggle and can cause much frustration and sadness for both the child and his/her family. The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun is a ‘must have’ for parents and teachers. They will start changing lives with these simple ideas that work with ALL children—and many adults, too.”
—Laurie Renke, Mother, national coordinator, DSI Parent Connections

“Carol opened the eyes and hearts of caregivers with The Out-of-Sync Child, allowing children who were once afraid of movement, who are overly sensitive to noise and touch, to grow and emerge from their cocoons of sensory dysfunction. Now, in The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun, she gives parents and teachers a cookbook of activities to orchestrate a new hum, a new rhythm and a common vibration to those who once were adrift. This book is like having a therapist whispering in your ear, 'try this now, and this, and now this...’”
—Rondalyn V. Whitney, MOT, OTR, author, Bridging the Gap: Raising a Child with Nonverbal Learning Disorder

“Oh, the pleasures your children will gleefully enjoy with any one of the activities in this marvelous book. OTs, parents and teachers, get ready to have fun, too, as you get in sync with your out-of-sync child through these important and clinically credible methods of attaining and retaining new life skills.”
—Aubrey Lande MS, OTR, vice-president, Occupational Therapy Association of Colorado

Being a mother faced with the possibility of my child having sensory perception disorder, I wanted to know everything about the disorder. One of our therapists suggested this book. There were some activities that we have been doing so we had some relief knowing we were on the right track. The book is broken down into sections for all the senses. That was helpful with my son not having problems with all the senses. The only downside I found to this book is that most the activities were geared towards ages 3+. My son is only 2 and there are a few activities he may not understand.

The Out of Sync Child Has Fun is infinitely more useful than the first book, The Out of Sync Child. This one is a collection of games, activities and exercises to address sensory processing challenges. I keep checking it out from the library, better just buy myself one so I can highlight and dogear away. This is a very useful book. I wish I had it when I was still doing pediatric home health. The exercises are almost all possible with stuff you have at home but are not silly or ineffective just 'cos they're cheap. I was a nurse for almost 20 years so I know what I'm talking about. I might even buy a copy for my developmental pediatrician. If I were to buy just one of this author's books, this would be it. It gives you good info about the differerent diagnoses that might cause sensory processing disorders, such as autism and Asperger's or Non-verbal Learning Disorders. It has exercises for the mildly impaired to the severely impaired and tips for adjusting each to your child's level
