As a music, movement and drama teacher for 25 years, Carol Kranowitz 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 in the United States and abroad, 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.  http://out-of-sync-child.com/
To help families, teachers, and professionals understand SPD in children, she has authored several popular books, manuals and other publications. In addition to The Out-of-Sync Child: Recognizing and Coping with Sensory Processing Disorder, revised (Perigee, 2005), Carol is the author of its sequel, The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun: Activities for Kids with Sensory Processing Disorder, revised (Perigee, 2006).

Her illustrated book for 8-12 year-olds is The Goodenoughs Get in Sync: A Story for Kids about the Tough Day When Filibuster Grabbed Darwin’s Rabbit’s Foot and the Whole Family Ended Up in the Doghouse (Sensory Resources, 2004). Another book geared for children is 101 Activities for Kids in Tight Spaces (St. Martin’s Press, 1995).

She has written a screening tool for Occupational Therapists to use with early childhood teachers, Preschool Sensory Scan for Educators (or “Preschool SENSE”) and co-authored a manual, Answers to Questions Teachers Ask About Sensory Integration (Sensory Resources, 2001). Currently, she and Joye Newman, M.A., a perceputal motor therapist, are co-authoring The Out-of-Sync Child, to be published by Perigee in 2010. (To learn more about Carol’s books, manuals, DVDs, CDs, book translations and other materials, please go to this website’s “Publications” page.)
