Praise for the works of Carol Kranowitz
"The Out-of-Sync Child has become the parents' bible to [Sensory Processing Disorder]."
--The New York Times

“This book is great! It is a real contribution to the parents of the many children who are so hard to understand.  It will let parents off the hook of blaming themselves… and will help them get on to the job of addressing the child’s underlying difficulties.”
--T. Berry Brazelton, MD, founder, Brazelton Foundation, Children’s Hospital, Boston
“Warm and wise, this book will bring both hope and practical help to parents who wonder why their kid doesn’t ‘fit in.’”
--Jane M. Healy, learning specialist and author of Your Child’s Growing Mind
“The Out-of-Sync Child does a masterful job of describing the different ways children react to sensations and integrate their responses to their world. The book provides detailed, practical information that will help parents understand how the nervous system works.”
--Stanley I. Greenspan, MD child psychiatrist and author (with Serena Wieder) of The Child with Special Needs
“Comprehensive yet easy to understand… helpful tools for parents to promote healthy integration.”
--The Exceptional Parent
