Has anyone read this book yet? I have been looking for answers to all of my son's behavioral/developmental issues and nobody can find medical reasons why he acts the way he does. I've had every lab and urine test done on him. He's had MRIs done to check for CP. Autism has been ruled out (too social). So I read the introduction to Out of Sync Child and it sounded like it might fit. He doesn't like his head or neck to be touched. This includes washing/brushing/drying hair and still screams when brushing teeth. He chews on everything from toys to books, his clothes and his own hands. He is an extremely loving and social little boy and I'm just trying to find the right answers. His doctors, teachers, and therapists are all stumped. Next step for me is to get a psych eval done and to have him see a urologist to make sure his inability to potty train isn't physical. Hopefully this book will help me identify how to deal with some of his sensitivities to touch and sound.
