   Great reference for anyone dealing with a child with SPD
As a licensed clinical social worker and mother of a child with SPD, I can empathize with the anguish and anger that comes with this diagnosis. I recommend this book to anyone who works with SPD clients. This book is great for family members of kids with SPD, without additional disorders, Dr. Goin said. Generally, the book that is most recommended is "The Out of Sync Child" by Gillian Flynn. However, the Out of Child Sync program is geared more toward children with more severe disorders. This book is a perfect reference for children with SPD without accompanying disorders. The book provides answers and guidance for families who have been wondering what's wrong with their child for a long time. If you're dealing with a kid who has severe social and emotional problems, I'd recommend this book not only for parents, but for teachers, therapists, as well as grandparents, daycare providers and anyone dealing with kids. This book is truly an educational read.

   Excellent - Must Have !
My recommendation as a teacher of special education and parent of a special needs kid with ASD is BUY BUY BUY. Simply put, if you have or teach any child with Special Needs, not just SI, then this book is for you. The book is full of practical and easy-to-implement strategies that can be implemented at home or school. Well-researched and contains chapters dealing with alternative therapies. be warned these authors say some of them don't come up to scratch based on research and I agree.

   They are well educated on Sensory Integration Dysfunction
It has all the right credentials to be a top resource for information, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He needs to be more educated about these and other sensory processing disorders. I am the proud parent of a child who overcame her sensory integration disorder. It's very important to find therapists who are well-versed in the field. The book leads you in the right direction. If I would have listened to naysayers like this, my daughter would not be the happy, healthy, and outgoing young lady she is today!

   this book has helped me to better understand the sensory issues that children (and adults) can ...
This book was very informative regarding sensory needs and adaptive measures,' said Dr. AnnMarie. Kelly, director of the Boston Children's Hospital. I found myself identifying these sensory traits that I missed in my son when he was very small. Furthermore, I believe that this book has helped me to better understand the sensory issues that children can face. Thanks to Dr. Goin, I have been able to better adapt to the needs of my grandchildren.

   Definitive Handbook
It really helped me understand people with sensory problems. If your child has sensory problems, you need to have this book. It helped me a lot and I'm recommending them to my friends who I know have someone in their family with sensory problems. You will be more compassionate and well-educated about the issue. Thanks to Amazon for the book.

   The best I have read...
With my son's recent diagnosis of sensory problems, I have been accumulating a library of books on the subject. This is by far my favorite book. Only halfway through the book, I have already dog-eared half of the pages. The book is packed with practical suggestions on how to help your child cope with everyday life. If you only have one book, you may want to try this.

   Very, Very Helpful tool for parents
As an OT with a child having sensory integration issues, I found this book to be excellent for reading and giving practical solutions. I have started to refer this book to parents of the OUT OF SYNC CHILD because I found it to be easier to understand, not as technical, and gives very practical solutions for everyday dilemmas. Although I use The Out of Child Sync for my own reference, parents give me feedback that it was too scary for them and that all of it did not apply to them. This book was written for parents of children with Sensory Integration Dysfunction.
