I haven't found this to be true
by: Bonnie

I agree with the last reply in that it is difficult to say because often children have more than one diagnosis and because spd is such a broad diagnosis. There are so many aspects or types as I am sure you know so it would be hard to say that all spd kids have trouble or even that it is common. In my case my son has an excellent memory but it is because he is highly sensitive (and has spd) and therefore pays close attention to details. He rarely forgets anything and often remembers things I forget like games we have played or songs we used to sing. But again I would attribute that to him being highly sensitive not to his spd.

memory problems
by: Brenda

I think it would be hard to tell, since many
children including my son seem to have a mixed
diagnosis. My son has SPD but also global developmental delays, mild CP and possibly on the
high end of the autistic spectrum. He does have memory problems but caused from what?
