Mom and Psychotherapist

by Corey's Mom
(Texas)

I just about cried when I read the criteria. In my profession, I have a few clients that have been diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder; however, they have other issues which are addressed in therapy. My son will be 8 in June, and for 4 years we have seen every darn specialist trying to figure out what is going on with my son. It was absolutely heartbreaking....And the looks that you get from school officials, as if he's spoiled or attention seeking. Yeah...well he is attention seeking, but he's not doing it to get on your nerves.


Ever since I've came to this website a few weeks ago, I've been educating myself so I can help my son. I plan to attend a conference in 2 weeks as well. His developmental specialist has been supportive. We have an appointment at school tomorrow, and I'm not looking forward to it. Is this disorder real....Oh, definitely. Ever since finding out this information, there are moments where I cry, wishing I knew earlier...or...FINALLY! I don't know how many items I checked off the check list, but it was ALOT! Bless you and the website and all parents and professionals who are treating this beautiful angels. Thank you!

Fight for our children with SPD
by: Anonymous

AMEN. If we as grandparents and parents dont stand up and fight the school system and get the education system educated on our childrens daily battle with SPD and the suffering an heartache we endure every single day, then who will? People look at me as if Im "making excuses" for my grandsons behavior says he is spoiled an knows how to control me just to get his way or give in to his "picky eating" just to be able to eat what he wants, well my advice to the ignorant of SPD is take a walk in my shoes for just one day and watch the frustration and suffering of the most precious child in your life and maybe they will see that SPD is REAL. I recommend this site to anyone who suspects SPD isnt real. Keep fighting for our kids and grandkids. Bless this web-site, been a real eye-opener and very helpful to our family

I just cant wait....
by: Anonymous

for SPD to become its own entity in the DSM!!
Then the schools, drs. and pyschs wil have to acknowledge this debilitating issue!!!!
Very frustrating for the parents
I get so pissed when they think you are just making excuses for your childs "obnoxious behavior"
All that says to me when people say that is......................
YOU ARE NOT EDUCATED in that dept!!!!
ITS REAL PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The saddest part is that our children have to suffer because of ignorance or "its just too much work for them"
Keep up the good fight!!!
