LAKELAND, Fla. (Oct. 19, 2006) — Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A., author of the best-selling “The Out-of-Sync Child” and several other works on sensory processing disorders and learning differences, will speak at Florida Southern College on Wednesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. The lecture and discussion is presented by the Roberts Learning and Literacy Center and will take place in Branscomb Auditorium on the FSC campus. A book-signing will follow, and a limited number of books will be available for purchase. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Kranowitz, who taught for 25 years at St. Columba's Nursery School in Washington, D.C., has written three best-selling books and produced videos, audio tapes and manuals on sensory processing disorders. She collaborated with an occupational therapist to develop an innovative program to screen young children for this common but misunderstood and misdiagnosed condition.
The Roberts Learning and Literacy Center at Florida Southern College, which was funded through a recent gift from Marjorie and Hal Roberts of Lakeland, provides specialized instruction and seminars in the early diagnosis and intervention of dyslexia and other learning and literacy challenges.
