Presentation topic: Integrating a Sensory Lifestyle at Home and School
Carol Stock Kranowitz During her 25-five year career as a preschool music and movement teacher, Carol Stock Kranowitz introduced Sensory Processing Disorder — or “SPD” — to parents and educators around the world through her groundbreaking book, The Out-of-Sync Child. This first book in the “Sync” series has sold a million copies and consistently ranks among the top ten books about children with disabilities. Her most recent publication is The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up: Coping with SPD in the Adolescent and Young Adult Years.
Carol speaks nationally and internationally about SPD's effect on children’s learning and behavior. She shows families, teachers, and professionals how to integrate sensible strategies and fun activities into everyday life to help typical and atypical children alike to function more smoothly as they grow up.
Carol earned her master's in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University in 1995. She lives in Bethesda, Maryland, plays the cello, and is “Granny Kranny” to five grandchildren.
