The Out-of-Sync Child

The Out-of-Sync Child

By Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A.
(Author, teacher, Editor of S.I. Focus Magazine and owner of The Out-of-Sync Child website)

When Kranowitz released the original version of "The Out-of-Sync Child" in 1998, there were very few resources available for parents of children with Sensory Integration Dysfunction, or SID (now called Sensory Processing Disorder, or SPD). Carol's amazing book became an instant must-have for parents, educators, therapists, adult sufferers, and anyone wanting to learn more about SID throughout the world.

In 2005, Carol Kranowitz re-released her book, in a stunning new "Revised and Updated Edition." The newly revised edition updated much of the text found in the book, including changing the disorder from Sensory Integration Dysfunction to Sensory Processing Disorder. She added new research and new discoveries that had been made in the 7 years since her first publication was released.

The verdict? After reading this new Revised Edition, I was reminded of just why I fell in love with this book in the first place. The new edition combines all the well loved elements of the original book with newer research and labelling. Examples have been expanded, as have the sections on auditory and visual processing. To this day, this remains the first book I recommend to parents who are just starting out on their journey, and even to adults who have SPD and are looking to learn more about it.

So, if you are interested in reading perhaps the best book available about Sensory Processing Disorder, then Carol Kranowitz's "The Out-of-Sync Child" is just the book you are looking for.
