During her 25-five year career as a preschool music and movement teacher at St. Columba’s Nursery School, Carol Stock Kranowitz introduced Sensory Processing Disorder — or “SPD” — to parents and educators around the world through her groundbreaking book, The Out-of-Sync Child.  This first book in the Sync” series has sold a million copies and consistently ranks among the top ten books about children with disabilities.  Her most recent publication is The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up: Coping with SPD in the Adolescent and Young Adult Years.

Carol speaks nationally and internationally about SPD's effect on children’s learning and behavior.  She shows families, teachers, and professionals how to integrate sensible strategies and fun activities into everyday life to help typical and atypical children alike to function more smoothly as they grow up.

A graduate of Barnard College, Carol received its Distinguished Alumna Award in 2017.  She earned her MA in Education and Human Development from George Washington University in 1995.  She lives in Maryland, plays the cello, and is “Granny Kranny” to five grandchildren.

 

Julia Berry is the Head of School at St. Columba’s Nursery School, a preschool program for children ages 30 months through age five.  Founded in 1959, St. Columba’s is a leader in the inclusion of special needs children, especially those with sensory processing challenges. 

A former botanist and oil spill specialist, Julia made the transition to early childhood education after earning an MA in Education and Human Development at George Washington University 35 years ago.  It was her great fortune to land her first teaching position at St. Columba’s where she found a program dedicated to ensuring that children had plenty on outdoor play – about half their day – as well as a deep commitment to exposing children to the natural world, animals, gardening, and lively experimentation both in and out of doors.  

Julia spent 20 years teaching science to children from preschool through the third grade and has been a parenting educator for more than 30 years.  She frequently writes and lectures on topics including quality outdoor play and playgrounds, how playgrounds and gardens engage and help children with special needs, and other topics that encourage schools to play more, especially outside.

Julia’s three children are grown but keep her busy. Her dog, Stella, loves working at St. Columba’s.  She’s an avid gardener and chicken owner, and her ukulele skills are growing.
