In-Sync Activity Card Book

Simple, Fun Activities to Help Children Develop, Learn and Grow!

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.

(2011) Resources for Early Childhood Motor Development, by Lorna d’Entremont

During one of my  Coffee Klatch tweetchats, I featured Joye Newman and Carol Kranowitz, authors of Growing an In-Sync Child: Simple, Fun Activities to Help Every Child Develop, Learn, and Grow. Did you know that early childhood motor development is the foundation for a child’s physical, emotional, and academic success? Early childhood motor development refers to a child’s ability to move and control his body. During the tweetchat, we discussed how even skipping, rolling, balancing and jumping can make a world of difference for our children.

The New York Times August 5, 2016

“[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.”

T. Berry Brazelton, MD Founder, Brazelton Foundation, Children’s Hospital, Boston August 5, 2016

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.”
