They wonder whether Emily will be ready for kindergarten next year and fear that if she goes, it may be hard for her stay attentive to the varied demands of the long school day. The Elements of Tuning In Though there is more to learn about these two children, the different qualities of their temperaments and their inattention are already noticeable.

Sometimes early feeding or medical problems get in the way of a warm bond. Sometimes a superficially easy, undemanding child gets lost in a pack of siblings and becomes, quietly, more and more withdrawn. Now and again a child gets so easily overwhelmed by sound or touch or smell that he feels too uncomfortable to get close to anyone (Stock Kranovitz, 1998).
