The groundbreaking book that explains Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)--and presents a drug-free approach that offers hope for parents--now revised and updated.

Does your child exhibit...

Over-responsivity--or under-responsivity--to touch or movement? A child with SPD may be a "sensory avoider," withdrawing from touch, refusing to wear certain clothing, avoiding active games--or he may be a "sensory disregarder," needing a jump start to get moving.

Over-responsivity--or under-responsivity--to sounds, sights taste, or smell? She may cover her ears or eyes, be a picky eater, or seem oblivious to sensory cues.

Cravings for sensation? The "sensory craver" never gets enough of certain sensations, e.g., messy play, spicy food, noisy action, and perpetual movement.

Poor sensory discrimination? She may not sense the difference between objects or experiences--unaware of what she's holding unless she looks, and unable to sense when she's falling or how to catch herself.

Unusually high or low activity level? The child may be constantly on the go--wearing out everyone around him--or move slowly and tire easily, showing little interest in the world.

Problems with posture or motor coordination? He may slouch, move awkwardly, seem careless or accident-prone.

These are often the first clues to Sensory Processing Disorder--a common but frequently misdiagnosed problem in which the central nervous system misinterprets messages from the senses. The Out-of-Sync Child offers comprehensive, clear information for parents and professionals--and a drug-free treatment approach for children.

This revised edition includes new sections on vision and hearing, picky eaters, and coexisting disorders such as autism and Asperger's syndrome, among other topics.

Pediatrics in Practice is a faculty development health promotion curriculum based on the principles of Bright Futures. Through the resources presented, maternal and child health (MCH) educators can prepare healthcare professionals with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to communicate effectively, partner with, and educate children and families as their advocates to promote health and prevent illness in a time-efficient manner.
This innovative curriculum is based on six core concepts that serve as the foundation for effective health encounters:
  • Partnership
  • Communication
  • Health promotion/Illness prevention
  • Time Management
  • Education
  • Advocacy

These six concepts provide the tools for building successful partnerships and promoting positive interactions among health professionals, children, and families during health encounters. By learning how to integrate these core concepts into clinical practice, health professionals can be assured that they are delivering time-efficient health promotion services.

This curriculum developed in collaboration with Children's Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School, and Bright Futures, will be of interest to anyone who cares for pediatric-age children, including all maternal and child health professionals such as pediatricians, nurses, public health specialists, nurse practitioners, physicians' assistants, social workers, dentists, and medical educators.

The Pediatrics in Practice publication is accompanied by a supplemental DVD containing background information about Bright Futures, models of best practice, this health promotion curriculum, and scenes from Disney's The Doctor to be used with the Communication module.
