If not, then you must read on!

I am just like you. I am the parent of a child who was severely affected by SPD. Whose terror-filled nights were nothing compared to the horror of his days. SPD at its worst was totally debilitating, and not only for my child but for our entire family. You too are probably exhausted, frustrated, and stressed beyond anyone’s comprehension. Or so you thought.

But here, at SPD Parent S.H.A.R.E., we have all been at the place you are, or maybe, right now. We all felt the guilt of not understanding what is happening with our children. We have all faced the blame for behaviors that were unacceptable.

We understand that nothing seems to work with these children, and no one knows why. It must be our fault, right? Wrong. It is not your parenting, it is not your fault. It is not just a badly behaved child.

It IS a disorder, a neurological disorder of the brain, simply put, where signals sent to the brain from all the senses, external and internal, are mixed up, or processed incorrectly, and the results you see are the behaviors of your child. Take a breath right now, and read that again. It is not your fault. It is no one’s fault. And it can be helped. And you can, and will begin to learn right now, this moment, what to do about it. Welcome home!
