30 SPD Facts in 30 Days -- Fact #30

For today's fact, I asked a few fellow SPD-mom bloggers to submit their ideas for what they wish the world knew about Sensory Processing Disorder.  If you're another loved one of a child with SPD, please feel free to add your own ideas to the comments section -- I'd love to hear your thoughts have your input added to the conversation as we try to raise awareness for this disorder that affects our lives.  Enjoy!

I wish the world could understand that it is not "just a behavior problem".  My son's actions and reactions often come from something real and it's called SPD! 

The first thing that popped into my head for something that parents of SPD wish the world knew is I wish that people knew that my kids are really good kids and they try their hardest.  I also wish the world knew that kids do not come out of cookie cutters, they are each unique!

I think it's so interesting that SPD is more prevalent in the gifted population. Every SPD mom I've talked to mentions that her child is really smart in one way or another. I often wondered what the connection is...I guess being more "sensitive" might go hand-in-hand with being more perceptive or intuitive. Here's more info from the SPD Foundation on this subject:     To me, this is a little ray of's sort of like an "upside" to SPD.
