The premise of the new book really struck me, and yet seemed so obvious. The work that Carol and Joye had devoted more than 70 combined years to, has been life-changing for children with SPD. But children with SPD are not the only ones who become out-of-sync. We all have our out-of-sync moments. In fact, today’s pace and culture seems often to perpetuate this out-of-sync state. As Joye and Carol question in their book, “Is it the child that is out of sync – or is it the world?”

Carol and Joye have done a great job explaining the components of the nervous system, how they impact every day life and how to get them in sync to recognize, react and adapt to incoming sensory information. Components such as the proprioceptive, vestibular and tactile systems are clearly explained for anyone to understand. Additionally, balance, bilateral coordination, body awareness, directionality, laterality, midline crossing, motor planning, spatial awareness, acuity, binocularity and visual tracking are described with examples of everyday activities which involve these tasks. The authors do a nice job of showing how a simple task, such as getting out of bed, requires a complex array of systems including proper vestibular processing, proprioception, balance, motor planning, tactile processing and bilateral coordination.

In my (gulp) twenty years as an editor of nonfiction, I’ve learned countless things from the authors I’ve worked with…. One of the most fascinating things I’ve learned comes from what also happens to be the first book I edited when I came to Penguin in the summer of 2004 — the revised edition of a special-needs bible called The Out-of-Sync Child, which has sold more than 750,000 copies to date.

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.)

Carol Kranowitz, a former preschool teacher, made us aware of sensory integration dysfunction in children in her first book The Out Of Sync Child. After the success of that book, she then came up with hands-on ideas to help with sensory integration dysfunction. The result is The Out of Sync Child Has Fun, packed with interactive games and activities to help integrate the sensory system for children ages 3 to 12.
