Lots of parents in our community are asking how they can know if their kiddo has Sensory Processing Disorder. I believe, as a parent of two SPD kids, the best way is to visit a pediatric occupational therapist for a complete evaluation. Our pediatrician didn’t know enough to help guide us to even considering SPD. And when we saw a neurologist… well, she asked if I needed a referral to an OT. We found a terrific group by asking friends if they knew anyone in the area with Aspergers or Autism because kids with these neurological challenges often have sensory challenges as well.
