SPD Foundation:Parent Connections Group


For those looking to learn more about Sensory Processing Disorders, check out the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation:

"The mission of the SPD Foundation is to enhance the quality of life for children with SPD and their families by :
  • conducting rigorous RESEARCH into the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of SPD
  • providing EDUCATION for those with SPD and for families, health care providers, policy makers, and the public
  • conducting ADVOCACY for recognition of SPD"
For more information, go to: http://www.spdfoundation.net/aboutus.html

If you are a parent of a child who has Sensory Processing Disorder and live in Egypt, then perhaps you would like to start a parent's support group in Egypt!

"A grassroots network with active groups in more than 70 U.S. communities and several foreign countries, SPD Parent Connections provides support and information to anyone dealing with sensory processing issues. Group discussions, education, resources, and guest speakers hosted by SPD Parent Connection groups give parents, grandparents, caregivers, and others living with sensational children a place to share stories and resources and to support one another."


Start a SPD Parent Connections Group in Egypt:


If you are interested in becoming a host, read the host agreement on the website and get started!

Everyone needs some type of support!

I would also suggest the STAR Center as a resource forSensory Processing Disorder Therapy. They are closely affiliated with the Foundation and Lucy Miller runs both places. They are just both fantastic resources and both are eager to help!

love to see this discussion! It’s great to see you all working through the issues and also, it’s great to see recommendations for testing. In the end, it’s what your actual users do and prefer hat should be your biggest driver in making these decisions.
