    Thank you for sharing this “testimony” of a mother with a child who has SPD. I’ve often wondered whether my 9 yo has a mild form of SPD.

    It’s so great that you’re highlighting SPD here. I don’t think many people are aware of it, and it’s especially helpful that there are suggestions for activities in the post too.

    Thanks for sharing this story. As a speech-language pathologist, and as the father of a 6-year-old with SPD, I am a strong believer in telling my daughter’s teachers about her condition. Many of them have never heard of SPD and have no idea what it is, so I see it as a chance to educate them and increase public awareness. Many children with SPD are mis-diagnosed as having AD/HD or autism, or else simply labeled as ‘behavior problems’, so the more people know about SPD the less likely these children are to go untreated.

    As a mother of 3 SPD children, I must say “thank you” for putting this information out there! So many people have no idea that the “strange behavior” is a result of sensory issues, and they don’t know how to respond. The more people know about SPD, the easier it will be for all of us. When I meet a new person who seems interested or confused by my child’s behavior I ask them, “are you familiar with sensory issues?” That usually gives me a chance to share my SPD “sound bite” and help other people understand that my children are not purposely being too loud or hurting others. Thanks again!

    I think not many people are aware that SPD affects 1 out of every 20 children. And this is a HUGE percentage, if you ask me.

    Sometimes I see such children while taking public transport… but like Mellisa said, we as humans shouldn’t judge…

    Thanks for sharing this with everyone. We just wanted to let you know that one of our very dear friends wrote a very personal account of her experiences with SPD on our website today.

    We thought we’d share the link with you so that you might read it and refer others to it as well. The link is: http://www.fivehens.com/adhd-maybe-not-spd/

    Please feel free to comment on the post. We’d love to hear your feedback.

    This is a great book. I would also suggest checking out Sensational Kids by Lucy Miller. Also a great book!
