The World of SPD

It has been a while since I have posted and now I want to get back in the swing of things.  I want to touch on people's opinions on Sensory Processing Disorder.  You may be new to this whole topic or you may be an expert.  Either way, you have probably gotten a whole lot of feedback concerning SPD.

First of all, SPD is not BS!  There are many books on the topic and doctors that have spent their entire careers researching the topic and working with kids to get them the help they need.  My favorite book is "The Out of Sync Child" by Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A.  Carol has a website at out-of-sync-child.com  There is also a great book titled "The Out of Sync Child Has Fun".    Which helps parents with creative ways to plan activities for their SPD kids.  There are seminars, blog groups, and conventions where you can talk to doctors and parents and learn more about SPD.

Second of all, we as parents of SPD kids are not looking to use this as an excuse.  We are doing everything we can to help our kids grow and take care of themselves as well as help them get through each day.

Finally, please do not let anything someone says get you down.  If you know something is wrong with your child, get answers.  Keep asking questions until you get the help your child needs!
