October is Sensory Awareness Month!

on October 12, 2017

The STAR Institute for Sensory Processing Disorder has launched a campaign for Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) awareness this month.  SPD tends to get lumped into autism because kids with autism often have sensory processing problems, but not everyone who has SPD has autism.  This distinction is very important in getting SPD recognized as a disorder all on it’s own.  You can help out by talking to your friends, your pediatrician or posting a link on your social media.  It can be hard to explain, but the STAR Institute’s website is very helpful for you to use and a great place to refer others.  Get the word out this month!
