Really interesting look at the correlation between physical and cognitive development. Written by a teacher who saw kids being sent to psychotherapy for various concerns like sensory processing disorders, introversion or aggressive behavior, etc. Kranowitz explains that parents actually inhibit their kids by pushing early reading and penmanship in place of physical activity. The book shows examples of handwritten exercises (copied patterns), which she and occupational therapist, Joyce Newman, th...more
Great book! I picked this book up because my son has been diagnosed with Sensory Processing problems, and I had read The Out-of-Sync Child by the same authors. This book gives a great concise explanation of sensory processing challenges and then gives you activities and games to play with your child to encourage development of their areas of difficulty. The activities are simple and do not require a lot of equipment. Each activity gives you ways to make it more "advanced" as your child begins to...more
Fascinating concept. I resented a little the implication that I had possibly messed my child up by trying to teach them something before they were ready, etc, but I love the idea that motion is so important for healthy physical and mental development. I think adults as well as children can benefit from the activities in the book. I appreciated the concenpt of moving as a way to boost my spirits and energize my body.

An easy reference guide to help any parent engage in fun, meaningful and purposeful activities for children age 3-7. I skimmed the first half of the book, although it did have some great information for people who are new to sensory processing disorder or the whole "In-Sync" series. Some of the activities are new, others are repeats from Kranowitz's other books. My kids at school (and at home) should be excited to try some of the new, fun activities.
I like the idea of this book. That there is so much to learn through moving your body and getting a better grasp on a variety of motor, spatial, and visual abilities. The biggest down side is that you kind of need to own the book in order to really do anything with it and I'm not quite sure I want to buy it right at this moment. There looked like a lot of great activities to do with kids to encourage their abilities.
Really great practical ideas for specifically helping kids to regulate their senses, have fun, and become more coordinated at the same time.
Really great book. I decided to read this one after being suggested to read the first, Out of Sync Child. It has great ideas for growing with your sensory kids.
