Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A.
As a music, movement, and drama teacher for 25 years, 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 her writings and workshops, she explains to parents, educators, and other early childhood professionals how sensory issues play out—and provides enjoyable sensory-motor techniques for addressing them at home and school.
Carol is best-known for her groundbreaking book,The Out-of-Sync Child. This first book in the “Sync” series has been translated into many languages, has sold one million copies, and is regularly among the top ten in booklists about children with disabilities. Her most recent book is, The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up.
A graduate of Barnard College, Carol has an M.A. in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University. She is a board member of STAR Institute for Sensory Processing Disorder, in Denver. She lives in Bethesda, Maryland, and has two wonderful sons and daughters-in-law and five sensational grandchildren. For fun, she plays the cello and, because of a high movement quota, gets at least an hour of exercise every day.
