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

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

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. I borrowed the book from the library on a friend's recommendationg and ended up ...more

I've just been hired by the co author, Joye Newman to work as a dance therapist, teaching creative movement classes using the "In Sync" method. It's a very sound theory, asserting that children need to be encouraged to explore a large vocabulary of movements from a very young age, in order to develop the perceptual motor skills needed to succeed in all the facets of academic life later on. I'm excited to help implement this practice at local schools as a representative of Kids Moving Company!

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 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.
