This book is amazing! As an educator and a parent of a child with sensory issues, it's so refreshing to read a book that is easy for everyone (parents, professionals, educators, family members) to follow and understand. This book is my go to sensory bible. Whenever I struggle to understand my daughter's sensory signals, I open this book, turn to the exact page I'm looking for, read why she may be demonstrating a specific signal, what sensory sensation she's seeking, and tips to help her cope. I cannot say enough good things about this book. I've even had my family members read some of the sensory signals that my daughter exhibits and because this book doesn't read like a textbook, they were willing to pick it up and digest the information. A definite must have in your collection if you're struggling to understand the reasons behind a child's sensory challenges.

Love this book it is a must have for anyone wishing to understand Sensory Processing Disorder. I am a busy mom of four adopted SPD children they are ages 4,3,2,1 with my busy family I do not have a lot of down time to read. This book is so easy to understand and quick to find answers. This is a game-changer to understanding our kids and their sensory signals. I LOVE this book it changes the way we react to our little ones. I would run around trying to stop the behaviors instead of offering alternatives to get the same sensory input. This is a must have book for anyone raising kids with SPD or family who wants to understand our SPD kids. Thanks Angie Voss and to my children's wonderful OT that recommended this book to me you are changing lives!

This book was so helpful! The first SPD book my exhausted, sleep deprived mind was able to get through and actually get something out of it! I love how it's formatted, just a quick browse for a specific behavior and I know what is really going on underneath the symptom (behavior) and how to better help my son. I highly recommend this to anyone who knows, loves, or works with a sensory kiddo.

I had "the out of sync child" for two months in my house and I had to return the book to the library because I just read the first pages (no time with 2 special kids). I read this book in one day! MEGA LOVE IT! thanks so much! So easy and practical!

This book is a must have for any parent, grandparent, or care giver to a child with Sensory Processing difficulties! Written in clear and consise terms, this book can be read and understood by everyone. The format of this book is by far the best format of any sensory book I have ever read. The format allows you to quickly refer to the section that pertains to your child's sensory signal, get an idea of what to do to help him/her, and then proceed to help quickly and efficiently. As the parent of a child who was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder 2 years ago, I have read almost every book on the topic that is available, with this book being my favorite!

This is by far my favorite book regarding SPD so far. The format of this book is outstanding! I can quickly and easily find the signal my son is exhibiting and read why he may be signalling and what I can do to help him. The most valuable aspect of this book, and the author's other books, is the encouraging and enlightening way she writes. After reading it for the first time, I found myself feeling so much more confident and empowered! I highly recommend this book, and the author's other books, to anyone with an SPD kiddo in their life!

This book is well formatted for easy reference. It offers complex information on sensory integration in an easily understood language while providing tools and strategies for how to help a child in difficult situations. I applaud the author for reminding us to approach our children's sensory signals with curiosity and, most important of all, respect.
