SPD Awareness Ribbon Color(s)
(Terre Haute, IN, USA)
Our three year old son was recently diagnosed with SPD. Prior to his diagnosis, we never even heard of the disorder. So, I am trying to read everything I can get my hands on and I find myself sharing the information with many people who know my son.
Sharing the SPD information led me to wonder what is/are the awareness color(s) for SPD. I have been searching online and have not found the specific term of "SPD" when linking with color(s). Is/are there any color(s) specifically for SPD, or would it fall under the ribbon categories of Special Needs or Autism?
Thanks for your time and attention to this question! :)
THAT is a great question! You know, I don't know the answer to it. However, Kathleen Morris of SI Focus Magazine is the one who has organized the SPD Awareness Days/Weeks the past few years. SHE may know the answer... I am not sure if a color has been established yet, but she may know. OR, she may know of a resource for awareness buttons/cards, etc. that I am also not aware of.
Can I ask a favor? If you do find out, can you please let us know!? I know many who would like to have this information. Our last awareness event was in the month of October 2007... it will come again next October. Meanwhile, keep spreading the word... THANKS!!! Our children thank you.

I hope you find the answer for us! Let us know if Kathleen knows what color, ok? Thanks. Sorry I couldn't help more.
