Sensory Processing Disorder

I was just a mom struggling to manage daily life with my four kiddos. More than I would like to admit, most mornings started with yelling matches at breakfast — it felt like I was always fighting with my second child, even over things like how I cut the toast.

Long story short, my “difficult” child actually struggled with Sensory Processing Disorder. So many of you have reached out and shared your heart with me about your own struggles with your “difficult” children. Isn’t it wonderful when we can finally help our child shine as bright and wonderful as we knew deep down they really were?

In an effort to help more parents advocate for their children with SPD, here is a compilation of blog posts I’ve written, companies offering supplies and therapy tools, and other helpful things.
