Praise for the works of Carol Kranowitz
"The Out-of-Sync Child has become the parents' bible to [Sensory Processing Disorder]."
--The New York Times
“This book is great! It is a real contribution to the parents of the many children who are so hard to understand. It will let parents off the hook of blaming themselves… and will help them get on to the job of addressing the child’s underlying difficulties.”
--T. Berry Brazelton, MD, founder, Brazelton Foundation, Children’s Hospital, Boston
“Warm and wise, this book will bring both hope and practical help to parents who wonder why their kid doesn’t ‘fit in.’”
--Jane M. Healy, learning specialist and author of Your Child’s Growing Mind
“The Out-of-Sync Child does a masterful job of describing the different ways children react to sensations and integrate their responses to their world. The book provides detailed, practical information that will help parents understand how the nervous system works.”
--Stanley I. Greenspan, MD child psychiatrist and author (with Serena Wieder) of The Child with Special Needs
“Comprehensive yet easy to understand… helpful tools for parents to promote healthy integration.”
--The Exceptional Parent
About the Author
Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A., is the author of several books in the "Sync" series. Among them are The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up, The Out-of-Sync-Child, The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun, and a children's book, The Goodenoughs Get In Sync: 5 Family Members Overcome their Special Sensory Issues. With Joye Newman, M.A., she is the co-author of Growing an In-Sync Child and In-Sync Activity Cards. She was a preschool teacher for 25 years and helped to develop an innovative program to screen young children for Sensory Processing Disorder. She speaks regularly about the subject in the United States and abroad. In her writings and presentations, she offers a fun and functional approach that integrates sensory-motor activities into everyday life at home and school. A graduate of Barnard College, she has an M.A. in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University. She is "Granny Kranny" to five sensational grandchildren, one of whom has written a book in his own right, Absolutely No Dogs Allowed, an alphabet book about a boy whose many pets have sensory issues at the park.

Each chapter starts out with a thumbnail sketch of a child with that particular sensory challenge, then give a brief overview of that sensory dysfunction, including a modality. Each activity lists the appropriate age range, the materials needed, what the child can do, and the sensory benefits that the activity offers. Each chapter is like this, so the teacher or parent can select the chapter that best fits the child and go from there. This is also true for the section on SAFE activities for sensory-related skills, such as motor planning, oral-motor skills, fine-motor skills, and bilateral coordination. At the end there is an appendix which includes a glossary of terms relating to sensory integration, recommended materials, a list of places where materials can be ordered from. This book should have been available yesterday and it is not time for children with autism and related disabilities to have FUN while having a sensory processing therapy and there's not better place to start than this book! A DEFINATE MUST HAVE!
