Yes, that’s right, Carol Kranowitz, the author of The Out-Of-Sync Child, needs YOUR help!
Are you the parent of a teenager with SPD? Or are you an adult with SPD yourself? Then read on:
Carol says: “Parents often ask me, ‘What happens to kids with SPD when they grow up?’ A new book in my “Sync” series — Striving for Sync: Teens and Adults Talk about Having Sensory Processing Disorder — may satisfy a huge hunger for information about what to expect in the future, as children mature”. This exciting new book will include contributions from adults and teens living with SPD.
And that could include you!
The SPD Blogger Network is very excited to help Carol Kranowitz with this amazing new project and we’re hoping you can help her too!
Here’s what Carol is looking for:
Your story (or poem) should be about something specific that matters greatly to you as a teenager or adult. It could be an incident, interest, conviction, goal, relationship, disappointment or accomplishment. Your topic may be one experience (“The day I bit the driving instructor”) or perhaps a recurring emotion (“What it feels like to be a Dad with vestibular dysfunction whose kids love amusement parks”).
Write about 750 – 1500 words — and write from the heart. Please plan to send your story in by Labor Day, 2011.
That’s right! You have until Labor Day to submit your stories to Carol. Submissions should be sent to Carol by sending an email through the website www.out-of-sync-child.com or an email to email@example.com.
Of course, Carol reserves the right to decide which submissions she will include in the book. Once your contribution has been selected, she will send you a release form from the publisher.
So send in your stories! And who knows? Maybe we’ll be reading your story in her next book!
