This is a ground breaking book that explain Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and presents a drug-free approach that provides expect parents. Sensory processing disorder is when the brain has trouble getting and giving an answer to information that comes in through the senses. Formerly known as Sensory Integration Dysfunction, it isn't currently named a definite medical diagnosis. Over-responsivity or under-responsivity to touch or movement? A kid with SPD could be a "sensory avoider," withdrawing from touch, refusing to wear certain clothing, avoiding active games or he might be considered a "sensory disregarder," needing a jump start to get moving. Over-responsivity or under-responsivity to sounds, sights taste, or smell? She may cover her ears or eyes, be considered a picky eater, or seem oblivious to sensory cues. Cravings for sensation? The "sensory craver" never gets enough of certain sensations, e.g., messy fun, spicy food, noisy action, and perpetual movement. Poor sensory discrimination? She might not sense the difference between objects or experiences - unaware of what she's holding unless she looks and struggling to sense when she's falling or how exactly to catch herself. Unusually high or low activity level? The kid could be constantly on the go - wearing out everyone around him or move slowly and get tired easily, showing little desire for the world. Issues with posture or motion coordination? He might slouch, move awkwardly, and seem careless or accident-prone. These are usually the first hints to Sensory Processing Disorder - a common but frequently misdiagnosed problem where the central nervous system misinterprets messages from your senses. Some individuals with sensory processing disorder are oversensitive to things in their environment. Everyday noises or mind-boggling may hurt. The light touch of the t-shirt may chafe their skin. Others with sensory processing disorder may: Be uncoordinated. Bump into things. Be hard to respond or react during play. Sensory processing problems are usually recognized in children. However, they can also affect adults. Sensory Processing Disorders are generally observed in developmental conditions like autism spectrum disorder. Sensory processing disorder is not just named a stand-alone disorder. Many experts believe that should change. This book offers comprehensive, clear information for parents and professionals--and a drug-free remedy approach for children.

The powerfully moving story of one family's journey toward healing their triplet sons with autism Lynn and Randy Gaston were overjoyed to discover they were having triplets after many arduous years of trying to conceive. But at eighteen months, the boys began exhibiting odd new behaviors-among them, toe-walking, arm-flapping, and in Nicholas, a sudden muteness. Terrified and dumbfounded, Lynn began researching their behavior on the Internet. The same glaring diagnosis kept popping up-each boy was displaying symptoms of autism, though each at a different point on the spectrum. Receiving little support from their own pediatrician, Randy and Lynn hired their own therapists and began intensive behavioral treatment, not covered by their health insurance. Offering invaluable advice that ranges from educational programs to legal issues to a comprehensive assessment of the therapies and interventions that have worked for their three unique children, Three Times the Love provides a road map for all families who will need to follow them through the trenches. Filled with practical advice and an extensive resource list, it is an essential guide for any family touched by autism.

What’s the single most important thing you can do during pregnancy? What does watching TV do to a child’s brain? What’s the best way to handle temper tantrums? Scientists know. In his New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina showed us how our brains really work—and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools. Now, in Brain Rules for Baby, he shares what the latest science says about how to raise smart and happy children from zero to five. This book is destined to revolutionize parenting. Just one of the surprises: The best way to get your children into the college of their choice? Teach them impulse control. Brain Rules for Baby bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice. Through fascinating and funny stories, Medina, a developmental molecular biologist and dad, unravels how a child’s brain develops – and what you can do to optimize it. You will view your children—and how to raise them—in a whole new light. You’ll learn: Where nature ends and nurture begins Why men should do more household chores What you do when emotions run hot affects how your baby turns out, because babies need to feel safe above all TV is harmful for children under 2 Your child’s ability to relate to others predicts her future math performance Smart and happy are inseparable. Pursuing your child’s intellectual success at the expense of his happiness achieves neither Praising effort is better than praising intelligence The best predictor of academic performance is not IQ. It’s self-control What you do right now—before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and through the first five years—will affect your children for the rest of their lives.

The Forbidden Fruit Hunter, who gets involved with men who are married, already have a girlfriend, or are still hung up on an ex and therefore emotionally unavailable.

The Wanderer, for whom just one man is not enough to fill the void, so she always has a lover or potential boyfriend on the side. The Uptown Girl, who is attracted only to men with money, prestige, and looks.
