Are there any statistics on the # of children diagnosed with SPD? If so, where could I find them.
According to Dr. Lucy Jane Miller, the statistics report a minimum of 1 in 20 children in the US have SPD. This is the only published statistic and is based on her research thus far. As awareness increases and more studies are done, we may very well find the statistics to be higher. When we consider the diagnosed and undiagnosed adults, and other countries… who knows how high the stats can go. I think we will see more in the years to come!
