Will My Child Grow Out of Sensory Processing Disorder?

Answering a listener question today - Will my child grow out of sensory processing disorder?

SPD is a neurological disorder that affects how your brain interprets  sensory information. SPD can affect one or more of the eight senses. You might be over-responsive to one type of input while simultaneously being under-responsive to another. Learn more about SPD HERE.

SPD can be lifelong, but there are strategies and modifications you can use to help. Things like environmental modifications, skills training, and sensory integration therapy can be helpful. We dive into these strategies and MORE in this episode!
