It seems my son may have a Sensory Processing Disorder. We are currently going thru therapy to see what we should do-any advice from you all on what you have expereinced?

We are going through the same thing with our son. Every day is a new adventure.

We are finding that understanding what he is experencing is Very real and very unnerving for our son.

Calmly walking him through each event has been a great help. Finding the sound he hears and helping him understand that it will not harm him has helped a great deal.

We are still working on insects, textures, light or the lack of light and water on the face.

But we take it one moment at a time. A day at a time is way to much to handle for both our son and his parents.

Hope this helps.

My son turned 2 in sept and his half sis has spd. Recently (about the last 5 months) I have noticed him really losing control he is not the very happy little boy anymore. Baths are a huge struggle, he can not sit with out a sippy, every time I try to hold or comfort him he pushes me away and says ouch, I also get hit or my hair pulled if I try to change diapers or speak to him. could SPD possibly be the reason for all of these huge changes? Im overwhelmed and every day is a huge struggle for me and my son. I am trying to find answer.

He runs around a lot and the therapists say that is how he processes things, such as his environment. I agree that taking it one moment at a time is good and being very patient. I am having a hard time knowing what to discipline him for, because some things-such as running constantly, he has a hard time not doing. Are you reading any good books on SPD?
