On parenting a child with Sensory Processing Disorder, among other things
Tuesday, September 22, 2009
Good news, though:
Frank at least tasted his cupcake at daycare yesterday! We brought in cupcakes to celebrate his birthday, and he picked one with chocolate icing. According to the teacher, he had icing on his face and the cupcake was thoroughly mangled. I am well pleased, even if he just licked it once and played with the rest of it, because he's never actually been interested in eating anything cake-like before.
I am married to my best friend and have a three-year-old son who has Sensory Processing Disorder. I have a mother who is going on six years since she was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). I work full-time as a sign language interpreter in a high school. Much of this blog will be stories about dealing with SPD in our every day life, with other random things sprinkled in.
