On a harrowing journey begun in 2005 with a diagnosis of her elder son Guy as being, "not like other children," author Dana Latter releases a book replete with hope. Coming out of the shadows and into the light, "Against The Odds" is a triumphant story of the Latter Family and their efforts to cope with SPD. Attacking the motor, visual, and cognitive skills of children, most notably socialization, speech and language, kids with SPD are characterized as "out-of-sync." Discussing an unfamiliar condition that encompasses global developmental delay, similar to Autism, the book underscores the triumphant alternatives to helplessness the Latter family has used with both of their sons, Guy and Tommy. Floor-time and vision therapy, as well as auditory listening and nutritional changes have helped bring about significant improvements. Guy has seen progress from 92% brain dysfunction function to only 25%.
