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.

“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.”
