Sensory challenges, solutions focus of presentation
Carol Kranowitz will address "The Out-of-Sync Student: Sensory Challenges & Sensory Solutions" at a breakfast and workshop from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at the Hyatt Regency, 1800 E. Putnam Ave., Greenwich.
The workshop is presented by Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities, of Westport.
Kranowitz is the author of the Out-of-Sync Child books. She will discuss how to help children whose difficulty in interpreting sensory stimuli affect how they behave, learn, relate to others and feel about themselves. These children may have difficulty riding a bicycle, reading a book and making friends, and may also struggle with ADHD, learning disabilities or autism spectrum disorders.
The program will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a book signing.
