Carol Kranowitz

The Out-of-Sync-Child

Carol Stock Kranowitz offers sensory strategies based on her books in the “Sync” series, including ”The Out-of-Sync Child" and “In-Sync Activity Cards.” Her fun and functional approach integrates sensory-motor activities into everyday life at home and school.  Carol holds an MA in education and human development and for many years taught music, movement, and drama.  Her newest book is “The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up: Coping with SPD in the Adolescent and Young Adult Years.”

By attending, participants can:

  • Identify the six types of SPD and how they affect daily life as children grow
  • Recognize co-existing problems (e.g., visual, auditory, and emotional)
  • Demonstrate “In-Sync” activities, designed to engage various sensory systems and thereby improve learning and regulate behavior

Rebecca Moyes

Teaching Self-Regulation Skills

Rebecca Moyes, a former teacher in both public and private schools for nine years, is the mother of two children. Her oldest is diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. Rebecca is currently an autism consultant/trainer for several school districts in Pennsylvania, USA, and author of three related books on Autism and Asperger's.

Many children struggle with managing their behaviors and emotions.  Self-regulation skills need to be taught so that young children can begin to act proactively (rather than reactively) in managing frustration, anger, anxiety, and in handling more appropriately the conflicts that may crop up in their daily lives.   Children also need to learn ways to manage their sensory needs when they are in sensory overload, or when they need to “rev” themselves up to increase their alertness.  Initiation, motivation, and inhibitory control are executive functions that may also need to be addressed so that our youth can be successful in the school and home settings.  Thinking and self-regulation are not isolated skills.  Indeed, when children are able to manage their feelings (emotional and sensory), they will be better prepared to learn.   To manage oneself appropriately, a student must make intentional decisions as well as initiate various processes.
This presentation will provide practical strategies to teach students to become in tune to their emotions and develop skills to be more independent with controlling their impulses.  The seminar will also provide educators with some strategies and lesson plan ideas to assist with the development of these important executive function processes.

By attending, participants can:

  • Describe some executive functions that may control self-regulation
  • Discuss how to implement particular strategies to help children learn to self-regulate
  • Describe ways to increase motivation, initiation, and attention skills
  • Explore  examples of ways to assist a student in sensory overload
  • Explore examples of ways to assist a student in alerting his/her sensory system
  • Demonstrate technique for assisting students in understanding the consequences of their behavior
