(2016) Coping with SPD in Adolescents and Adults

Webinar, aired May 25, on ADDitudemag.com

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) manifests in many small, sometimes maddening ways. Itchy tags may be unbearable. Loud music intolerable. Perfume simply sickening. Whatever the specific symptoms, SPD makes it difficult to interact with your daily environment. This impacts how you relate to others, study and learn, participate in sports and group activities, and follow your dreams. It is a unique and challenging neurological condition associated with inefficient processing of sensory information, and it deserves close study and serious support.

This webinar will discuss SPD in adolescents and adults, and will contain information helpful to parents, teachers, therapists, and other family members.

(2011) The Out-of-Sync Child: How SPD Affects Kids with ASD, with Nancy Bernotaitis

January 18
Discussion at the 3rd annual Autism Tele-Conference sponsored by Moms Fighting Autism

Most children with autism are “out-of-sync,” withdrawing from physical contact, refusing to participate in everyday activities, or responding in unusual ways to sensations of touch, movement, sight and sound.   These children don’t behave as we expect — not because they WON’T, but because they CAN’T.   The underlying reason is Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).  Parents, teachers, and other caregivers can provide fun sensory-motor experiences to address autistic children’s sensory needs and help them participate and communicate with their peers – in general education or special education classrooms, on the playground, and at home.
