Carol Stock Kranowitz

As a music, movement and drama teacher for 25 years (1976-2001), Carol observed many out-of-sync preschoolers. To help them become more competent in their work and play, she began to study sensory processing and sensory integration (“SI”) theory. She learned to help identify her young students’ needs and to steer them into early intervention. In writings and workshops, she explains to parents, educators, and other early childhood professionals how sensory issues play out – and provides fun and functional techniques for addressing them at home and school. She is best-known for her book, The Out-of-Sync Child, which has sold about 1 million copies.

(2016) What Happens When Kids with Sensory Processing Disorder Grow Up? — by Jamie Pacton

Published June 8 on Parents.com

Kids who are “out-of-sync” with the world due to Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) struggle with a variety of sensory and motor challenges, but we can help them through simple routines and consistent activities. I’ve learned this from everyday experiences with my own autistic son (SPD and autism often go hand-in-hand), as well as through conversations with educator and writer Carol Kranowitz, who has helped parents and professionals better understand SPD for years with her popular books about the disorder, including The Out-of-Sync-Child.

(2016) About The Out-of-Sync Child, The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun, and The Goodenoughs Get In Sync, by Terri Mauro

Reviews of books about and for children with special needs, on www.verywell.com

The Out-of-Sync Child (reviewed January 16):

In a nutshell: The Out-of-Sync Child was published when “sensory integration” was first being whispered about in parent support groups as an explanation for a grab-bag of confusing behaviors. [SPD] is now much more accepted as a diagnosis than it was then, and this book is revered as an essential parent resource.

The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun (July 4):

“What can we do at home?” Occupational therapists have been giving parents informal answers to that question for years, providing general ideas or jotting down lists so that the benefits of sensory integration therapy can continue all through the week. The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun functions as a scrapbook for all those ideas, from “finger paint with shaving cream” to “fill a box with rice.”

The Goodenoughs Get In Sync (reviewed June 30):

Filibuster’s a dog. Darwin’s a boy. And the Goodenoughs are a family with a spectrum of sensory problems that make them perfect for explaining sensory integration to children and helping them feel better about the way their own bodies work. Kranowitz, author of The Out-of-Sync Child, wrote this book for children ages 8-12, but it breaks things down pretty nicely for their parents, too, with smaller-print sections kids are allowed to skip.

What People Are Saying

NYT

“The Out-of-Sync Child has become the parents’ bible to [Sensory Processing Disorder].”

Jane Healy

“Warm and wise, [The Out-of-Sync Child] will bring both hope and practical help to parents who wonder why their kid doesn’t ‘fit in.’ ”

Learning specialist and author of Your Child’s Growing Mind

T. Berry Brazelton

“[The Out-of-Sync Child] 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.”

Founder, Brazelton Foundation, Children’s Hospital, Boston

Stanley I. Greenspan

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.”

Child psychiatrist and author (with Serena Wieder) of The Child with Special Needs
