Meet the expert:
As a teacher for 25 years, Carol Kranowitz, M.A., observed many young children with Sensory Processing Disorder. To help these “out-of-sync” preschoolers become more competent in their work and play, she studied sensory processing theory, learned about some differences between SPD and ADHD, and steered the students into appropriate early intervention. In her writings and workshops in the United States and abroad, she explains to parents, educators, and other early childhood professionals how sensory challenges play out – and provides fun and functional sensory strategies for home and school. Her two most popular books, The Out-of-Sync Child and The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun, together, have sold 1 million copies. Carol is currently writing The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up (Perigee Books, 2016). For more information, visit her website at www.out-of-sync-child.com.

What listeners are saying:
"As a pediatric OT, I loved all of Carol's words and thought she did an incredible job distinguishing between SPD and ADHD. She provided just enough research and medical information to validate it all, but not too much to overwhelm parents. What an honor to hear her speak and answer questions."
"Thank you so much! This session was extremely informative and will help me both at home and with the special needs children at work. Thanks!
"I found the information to be particularly helpful for when working with students that are on the Autism spectrum. Today's session reinforced so many of the strategies I've implemented in my classroom."
