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!

30 SPD Facts in 30 Days -- Fact #3

There are actually 7 senses, not just five!  In addition to sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, there is vestibular sensation (movement and balance) and proprioception (input from our muscles and joints).  Sensory Processing Disorder can affect people in only one sense–for example, just touch or just sight or just movement–or in multiple senses.  

Don't forget to stop by Hartley's Life with 3 Boys to read 30 Stories in 30 Days, guest blogs from 30 different families about their experiences with an SPD child.
