New to this, but not really..
I am 33 years old and have just discovered SPD because my son is currently being evaluated for it. I also have SPD myself. I have strong hypersensitivities in areas of light, noise and touch. I am also hyposensitive in my sense of smell. I don't have an official diagnosis for myself, but my behavior now and as a child is strongly indicative of SPD. Even my sister, who is four years older than me and has a son with hearind difficulties, can attest to my SPD behavior as a child. I have also always discribed myself as hypersensitive.
What I am finding most difficult now is how to be a parent with SPD to a child who has SPD. I'm ready a great book about how to be a parent of a child with SPD, but feel lost when it comes to dealing with my own struggles and then trying to create the best environment for him. Also, my son and I both suffer from migraines. This makes it even more challenging.
