The Out of Sync Child

I am reading The Out of Sync Child: Recognizing and Coping with Sensory Processing Disorder by Carol Stock Kranowitz. I picked it up yesterday and have already learned so much. I will be posting some important information from the book here. Joey has not been diagnosed with this disorder by many children with ASD also have issues with SPD.

Does Your Child Have Sensory Processing Disorder?
pg.32 ~ "Another component of Autism - and a very important one - is difficulty with sensory modulation, sensory discrimination, motor planning, and sequencing. Problems with sensations are sometimes overlooked or downplayed but are among the main areas of impairment."

pg.33 ~ "That most people with Austim have some degree of SPD is a recognized fact. Understanding how sensory and motor problems complicate the child's daily life is crucial for designing an appropriate intervention program. Parents must ensure that their child's treatment program includes ample sensory-motor experiences and an individualized sensory diet.
