ABOUT THE SPEAKER
“In Sync” Activities for Cooped-Up Kids with Sensory Challenges
Carol Kranowitz, MA, offers sensory strategies that are applauded not only in the United States, but also around the world. The Out-of-Sync Child has sold over 1,000,000 copies and has been translated into 13 languages. The Spanish translation, El Niño Desincronizado, has just been published by Future Horizons. Carol holds an MA in education and human development and was a music, movement and drama teacher. She has developed a purposeful, “In-Sync” approach that integrates sensory-motor activities into everyday life at home and school.
Kids gotta move! But because of COVID-19, children can’t simply run outside and play. Cooped up at home, away from friends and regular activities, children with sensory challenges may feel especially out of sync. Here are some sensory-motor activities to help parents cope with meltdowns, build on children’s self-therapy, and maintain a sensory lifestyle at home until it is safe to return to school and be out and about.
Carol will briefly discuss how sensory processing develops and six types of sensory challenges. Then she will demonstrate several fun, functional, hands-on, body-on activities that help children with SPD (as well as their typical friends and siblings) to get “in sync.” Activities emphasize heavy work, body awareness, rhythm and timing, visual and auditory processing, motor planning, crossing the midline and calming down. Using simple equipment such as paper plates, cardboard tubes, sticks, pine cones and stretchy bands, participants will review old-fashioned, three-dimensional strategies to get kids moving and learning, communicating and participating joyfully in life around them.
By attending participants can:
- Learn how sensory processing develops as we grow, affecting everything we do and making it possible to function as active participants in daily life.
- Identify the six types of SPD and how they can affect the daily lives of children.
- Demonstrate “In-Sync” activities designed to engage various sensory systems and thereby improve learning and regulate behavior.
