About the Author:
This delightfully illustrated "chapter book," geared for eight-to-twelve year olds, tells the charming tale of five family members (each with a different sensory processing challenge) and their naughty dog, and how they get in sync after a tough day. The book is designed with the action of the story in larger print for younger readers to read or hear. Explanations of sensory processing disorders are woven through the story in regular type, for proficient readers to linger over at leisure.
This wonderful book from the best-selling author of The Out-of-Sync Child and The Out-of-Sync Child Has Fun, is a must-have for every family challenged by sensory processing problems.
Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A., is the author of The Out-of-Sync Child, the best seller that demystifies sensory integration. She is also featured in the video version of The Out-of-Sync Child. As a music, movement and drama teacher for 25 years, Carol Stock Kranowitz observed many out-of-sync preschoolers. To help them become more competent in their work and play, she began to study sensory integration ("SI") theory. She learned to help identify their needs and to steer them into early intervention. In her workshops and writings, she explains to parents, educators, and other early childhood professionals how sensory processing issues play out -- and provides practical and enjoyable techniques for addressing sensory issues at home and school.
