Out-of-Sync Child, Inc. Books and presentations about sensory processing differences/disorder (SPD).
Carol Stock Kranowitz
When she was a music and movement preschool teacher, Carol observed many out-of-sync children with sensory processing differences (SPD). To help them become more competent in work and play, she learned to identify children’s sensory challenges and steer them into early intervention.
Her seminal book in the “Sync” series is “The Out-of-Sync Child, 3rd ed.: Recognizing and Coping with Sensory Processing Differences.” The book has won awards, sold about 1,000,000 copies, and been translated into many languages (visit https://out-of-sync-child.com/translations/ to see the list).
Other books in the “Out-of-Sync” series are “The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up: Coping with Sensory Processing Disorder in the Adolescent and Young Adult Years” and “The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun: Activities for Kids with SPD.” A children’s book, “The Goodenoughs Get In Sync: 5 Family Members Overcome their Special Sensory Issues,” explains what being out-of-sync feels like.
Meanwhile, Carol and colleague Joye Newman are co-authors of the “In-Sync Child” series. These award-winning materials focus on fun and functional activities to benefit all children, with and without developmental differences. Titles are “Growing an In-Sync Child: Simple, Fun Activities to Help Every Child Develop, Learn, and Grow”; its sequel, “In-Sync Activity Cards/Book”; and a 52-week calendar, “A Year of Mini-Moves for the In-Sync Child.” Carol and Joye also have produced a 10-part webinar series about their In-Sync Child Method.
