Autism Resources


Below is a list of autism resources because discussing sensory processing disorders / sensory integration issues without addressing Autism is impossible! In light of that, we will tell you that we contemplated long and hard about dedicating sections within this site to these disorders, as they relate to sensory integration / sensory processing disorders. At this point we feel it is better to leave this to the specialists and direct you to the most comprehensive resources on Autism.

Truly, there are some incredible resources out there for professionals, parents, families, and individuals affected by these developmental disorders!  Therefore, want to lead you to some resources and articles written by those who truly specialize in these disabilities. THEY can give you a better "gift" than anything we can provide at this point in time.

Please bear with us as we build this list of autism resources, and check back often for the latest links. We have also included a section below where you can share your experience, strength and hope and any insights you may have to share with the readers of about SPD and Autism.
