Webinar, aired July 1, on ADDitudemag.com
In this free webinar, Carol Kranowitz discusses:
1. The hallmarks of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and why it often travels with ADHD
2. How to identify the different types of SPD based on your child’s behavior
3. Sensory-positive strategies for encouraging work and play
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.

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.

September, at SPD Parent Zone
“I do want parents to know that there is no blame to take for this. That everyone loves their own child more than anything in the world, and you are already doing things for the child’s benefit. I want parents to know that they are GOOD parents, and it’s just a neurological issue that makes the child unable to do things that people expect.”

Sensory Processing Disorder is a condition that exists when sensory signals don’t get organized into appropriate responses. A person with SPD finds it difficult to process and act upon information received through the senses, which creates challenges in performing countless everyday tasks.
