Recently, I devoured Growing an In-Sync Child, co-written by the author of the well-known Out-of-Sync Child and Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun. Why was I able to devour it despite having two preschoolers and one infant with me 24-7? Because it is so easily read! (and it earns its first star for this.)

Written by professionals in the fields of Early Education, Sensory Processing Disorder and Perceptual Motor Therapy, Growing an In-Sync Child makes topics and activities that are often accessible only to experts in classrooms and therapeutic offices around the world easy to understand and implement by even untrained parents and educators. Short chapters, concise information, helpful charts and easy-to-follow "recipes" for activities, as well as examples of the how and why behind the activities, make this handy guide work well for busy parents and educators who want to read it in snippets as time allows or refer to it as needed when observations of children's needs demand a new approach. Plus, hundreds of examples of WHY different skills are necessary make words such as "vestibular processing ("for standing while following verbal directions", "for sitting at a picnic table", "for doing gymnastics", etc.) and "laterality" ("for holding a bag and stuffing it with leaves", "for sliding into home plate", "for talking on the telephone", etc.) easily understood. And, I love the way the book avoids the typical "he" vs. "she" gender issue that so many books of this nature struggle with: For each activity, a name for a child is given - Michelle, Thom, Marvin, Kelly-Ann and so on. The "he" or "she" follows naturally from there. This works to make the activities seem real and personal, as opposed to generic and clinical.

My CPA husband used to do everything for our grandchildren, thinking he was helping them. Now he understands that to really help them develop important skills, he needs to encourage them to actively use their bodies. New grand-parenting style includes having them open doors themselves and push the grocery cart. When one of our little five-year-old grandsons bumped the grocery cart against a threshold, and the contents went flying, my husband saw it as a learning experience. No problem! Picking up the spilled groceries was actually a fun activity for our grandson! He was probably amazed that he was praised for doing a good job instead of being scolded for being clumsy. My husband would never have thought in this way without reading this wonderful book!

One thing that really helps is seeing examples of how changing activities makes a big difference. So I loved the chapter on "Three Children Get In Sync." This book makes what seems so technical such an easy thing. I really understand now what motor skills are and how important simple things like skipping and jumping are.

The authors proclaim that as we continue to get more sedentary as a society, our children may be paying the price for inadequate motor development that affects all areas of their lives. From their 70 years of experience working with children, they explain and provide examples in the book how this is so. This book is brilliantly written and provides so many nuggets and angles about motor development and its impact on a child's success. Every page is valuable. Never have I seen an author put all the whats, whys and hows together so succinctly for what I think can be very complex subject matter. The included demonstrations of the children's copying abilities before and after motor therapy by Joye Newman was profound and one of the best takeaways from this book. It makes it clear how movement and other skills correlate. I wish I had this book 4 years ago when my son was misdiagnosed with an ASD at age 4. It's so clear now that he is not on the spectrum, but he did have motor planning and sensory processing issues which kept him from proper sequential development. This book clarified the specific technical issues that we were experiencing without being overly clinical. Our whole family really enjoys the fun activities which account for about half of the book volume. Both my 4 y.o. and 8 y.o. beg to do them. To them they are like party games, but I can tell their minds and muscles are thinking, processing and acquiring skills. I think this book has broad use. I recommend this book highly to all parents of young children to use as a guide in watching and enhancing their child's development. Each activity gives a "what to look for" section for each exercise that could help in identifying kids that may need closer examination or outside therapy.Read more ›

We've all heard lots about how kids should stop spending so much time on their computers and in front of television sets. Now, I know why. Getting up and moving is really critical to all sorts of functions that are important in life. And the activities in this book are great! I give a big thumbs up for ALL parents!!!!!
