At what point do sensory processing issues jump to a full blown disorder?

It's difficult to say at what point sensory processing issues can be considered a full-blown disorder, as it can vary from person to person. However, if your child's sensory issues are significantly impacting their daily life and causing distress, it may be worth seeking a professional evaluation.


SPD can Co-Exist with Other Disorders

SPD is not always a stand-alone diagnosis and can coexist with other conditions such as autism spectrum disorder. However, it is important to note that SPD can also be diagnosed without an accompanying diagnosis of autism.

If you have concerns about your child's sensory processing issues and how they may affect their development and well-being, it is best to consult with a healthcare professional who specializes in sensory disorders. They can provide you with guidance and support on how to manage your child's symptoms and provide appropriate accommodations in their daily life. Remember, every child is different and may require different levels of support, so trust your instincts as a parent and advocate for your child's needs. #SPDawareness #sensoryprocessingdisorder #Final Thoughts

Managing and Supporting Children with SPD 

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to managing and supporting children with SPD. Every child is unique and may require different strategies and accommodations. It's important to stay open-minded and flexible in your approach, and to communicate openly with your child about their needs and experiences.

Remember that advocating for your child with SPD also means taking care of yourself. Parenting a child with sensory issues can be overwhelming at times, so don't be afraid to seek support and resources for yourself. Self-care is essential in order to effectively care for your child.
