Most children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) are just as intelligent as their peers. Many are intellectually gifted. Their brains are simply wired differently. (From SPD Foundation's website)
I know most parents think their kid is exceptional in some way or another, so I really wish you could meet Josiah. He really is exceptional! He is SOOO articulate and curious, and he makes such amazing intellectual connections between things and figures things out so quickly and effortlessly. His vocabulary rivals some middle schoolers' and he's not even six yet! And if he has heard a story even one time (especially if it was read dramatically) he can recite nearly the entire thing back (give him two or three repititions of the same story and he can recite the whole thing complete with emotion!)
Thanks for joining me along the journey! I'd love to hear what you want to know ... do you have questions about sensory processing disorder, gluten-free/dairy-free diets, homeschooling, faith, life in general? Send me a note or post a comment and I'll try to write something that addresses your interests and questions!
