Editorial Reviews

Review

“The Out-of-Sync Child—the best book ever written on Sensory Processing Disorder—has been the salvation of mothers everywhere. This sequel will help them even more.”
—Marguerite Kelly, syndicated family columnist and coauthor, The Mother’s Almanac
 
“Having fun isn’t something that just happens for most children with severe sensory issues. Everyday activities can be a struggle and can cause much frustration and sadness for both the child and his/her family. The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun is a ‘must have’ for parents and teachers. They will start changing lives with these simple ideas that work with ALL children—and many adults, too.”
—Laurie Renke, Mother, national coordinator, DSI Parent Connections



“Carol opened the eyes and hearts of caregivers with The Out-of-Sync Child, allowing children who were once afraid of movement, who are overly sensitive to noise and touch, to grow and emerge from their cocoons of sensory dysfunction. Now, in The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun, she gives parents and teachers a cookbook of activities to orchestrate a new hum, a new rhythm and a common vibration to those who once were adrift. This book is like having a therapist whispering in your ear, 'try this now, and this, and now this...’”
—Rondalyn V. Whitney, MOT, OTR, author, Bridging the Gap: Raising a Child with Nonverbal Learning Disorder



“Oh, the pleasures your children will gleefully enjoy with any one of the activities in this marvelous book. OTs, parents and teachers, get ready to have fun, too, as you get in sync with your out-of-sync child through these important and clinically credible methods of attaining and retaining new life skills.”
—Aubrey Lande MS, OTR, vice-president, Occupational Therapy Association of Colorado



 

About the Author

Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A., has been a preschool teacher for more than 25 years. She has developed an innovative program to screen young children for Sensory Processing Disorder, and writes and speaks regularly about the subject. She has an M.A. in Education and Human Development..


More About the Author

Two recent publications, co-authored with Joye Newman, a perceptual-motor therapist, are "GROWING AN IN-SYNC CHILD: SIMPLE, FUN ACTIVITIES TO HELP EVERY CHILD DEVELOP, LEARN AND GROW" (Perigee, 2010) and the book's sequel, "IN-SYNC ACTIVITY CARDS" (Sensory World, 2012). Unlike my previous books focusing on SPD, these are for ALL children, with or without learning problems. Our message is clear: Children must get off the couch and on the move! We offer 110 enjoyable movement experiences to give kids of all ages and stages a head start and a leg up. Please visit our website, www.in-sync-child.com and contact us if you would like us to do a presentation on our "In-Sync" program for your parent group or PTA.

Writing has always been a pleasure as well as a necessity to help me make sense of the world. When I write it, I get it. A subject that made no sense to me at all when I began teaching at St. Columba's Nursery School in Washington, DC, was the behavior of some little kids who seemed "out of sync" with the world. They captured my attention and my heart. Driven to learn about what made them tick -- or what made them NOT tick -- I studied Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) so I could become a better teacher. I found that SPD is a developmental problem that interferes with children's ability to function smoothly in daily life. When recognized and treated, kids (and adults) with SPD can become more "in sync."

Parents, pediatricians, teachers and other caregivers, too, need to understand how SPD plays out at home and school, so I wrote "The Out-of-Sync Child" and "The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun," both published by Perigee. Sensory World published more books, including "The Goodenoughs Get in Sync" for children, and "Preschool Sensory Scan for Educators" (or, "Preschool SENSE"), written for early childhood teachers and occupational therapists working together. You can see the whole list of my publications at www.sensoryworld.com or www.out-of-sync-child.com When I'm not writing about the kind of sensory-motor and perceptual-motor experiences that parents and teachers can provide to help children with SPD, I'm talking about it at venues all over the world.

I grew up in New Haven, Connecticut, graduated from Barnard College in New York, and earned an M.A. in Education & Human Development from George Washington University in Washington, DC. I have two splendid sons, two phenomenal daughters-in-law, and five marvelous grandchildren. My partner, Mark Zweig, and I live in Bethesda, Maryland. I play the cello, bike and hike, read real books (i.e., printed on paper), and answer every e-mail. Check it out: carolkranowitz@out-of-sync-child.com

Format: Paperback
I was the editor who proofread this revised edition. I'm also a mom with 2 sons. I had never heard of SID/SPD at the time, but I thought this seemed like a great and practical book when I edited it. I moved on to my next editing job.

Then my older son went to Kindergarten. At his spring parent-teacher conference, his teacher let us know that she was concerned because he was still parallel playing (appropriate for toddlers, not almost 6 year olds) and he wasn't really interacting with the other children. The school brought in the social worker to model social behavior for him. I talked to both his school and his pediatrician. We were referred to someone for an autism spectrum evaluation. My son had a few of the characteristics, but not enough of them to be on the autism spectrum. The summer between Kindergarten and 1st grade, my son's behavior and anxiety escalated. I scoured the Internet for answers. Not autism, not ADHD. No answers. At the beginning of 1st grade, there was a meeting (IEP) at his school with the principal, his teacher, the social worker, the OT, and the special education teacher. We talked about how to help my son. The OT talked about some of the things and activities she wanted to do throughout the school day. Of course we agreed to all the help they suggested. I went home and mulled it over. Months went by, the suggestions seemed to be helping my son and he was settling in to 1st grade. Still no label, but he was getting better. Sometime in January of his 1st grade year, I had my "aha" moment. I realized that the activities he was doing with the OT at school were the SAME activities suggested in THE OUT-OF-SYNC CHILD HAS FUN--and they were working! Talked again with his pediatrician and the school, and found a wonderful center for Pediatric OT.

I have two children with autism and bookcases full of theory on what works best for them. None are as practical and hands on as this book. These are great ideas that don't reguire tons of extra planning and effort. They are fun and they really work. They are also great for ideas for autistic and neurotypical kids to praticipate in together. Most of these ideas would be fun for all kids not just children with sensory processing difficulties.

We got this book right after our son was diagnosed with autism. It is the kind of book that you can constantly refer back to as your child progresses and learns new skills. Our child has really enjoyed participating in the activities. Also, the activities are interesting enough that our other son, who does not have autism, enjoys participating as well. This allows for some great peer interaction. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is dealing with a child with sensory integration issues. It is just great!

Contains many practical and easy activities that are fun for any child, not just "out of sync." Tried several already and found my grandson loved the originality and the use of everyday objects as situations for play.

I think that with technology as it is, we sometimes forget how beneficial basic play can be and how greatly it aides in our child's development.

This is such a great book and is so well organized. Every parent and gradparent/childcare giver of children should have this book, Sensory issues or not!

Format: Paperback
Having a son that has just been diagnosed with autism and feeling helpless, this book is just what we needed. This book helped me play wiith my son in ways that were so helpful to him. The book gave me ideas that made my own creative juices flow and I found myself wanting to make toys instead of purchasing them. And we all know that toys can get very expensive. I think it's a must for parents of autistic children.

The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun is a great resource for parents and teachers. As a teacher of special needs kids, I'm always looking for materials to share with parents, and this one is really meeting the need. Ms. Kranowitz knows her topic. Her ideas for simple, fun activities that teach are easy to follow. This is a book I will use over and over again.
