Hereditary
by: Jonelle

I also believe it is hereditary. My Son is hypersensitive and although my husband has never been diagnosed, I see alot of the same symptoms in him. My husband and I used to argue because he would want to run out of the house when our twins would cry. It would put him into a complete panic attack. There are alot of other symptoms that they both share. Learning about my sons disorder has helped me to be more sensitive to my husband. The two are exactly alike.

I believe that SPD is hereditary. I would be interested in contacting you, as I live in Englewood Fl also. Do you have a child with SPD? I have a 7 yr old daughter with SPD and would like to get information on support groups, etc in our area. Please email me at dandlrobertson@hotmail.com and put SPD as the subject so I don't delete as junk mail.

I also believe that it is and everywhere I try to research this topic, it onlys says that some believe it is but have nothing to technically back it up. I am anxious to hear other responses on the same issue!

I believe based on personal experience that it is. My son has SPD and has auditory and eating issues related to texture. I had the same eating issues and also still as an adult have severe SPD issues that I would not even know about were it not for my son.

I seriously believe there is a genetic link.
