“As a delayed-diagnosis sensory adult with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), one of my greatest pleasures is helping newly diagnosed children with the same condition, whether this means championing their parents or explaining sensory issues from the inside. We SPD adults and teens have the words to convey how it feels to be mid-meltdown with traffic barreling down on us, or mid-bite as we desperately hunt for input, and so we’re not unlike camp counselors or big siblings We must protect even the tiniest members of our community by speaking up on their behalf.
Recently, a parent emailed me to ask how I’d explain SPD to her nine-year-old daughter. And so, this blog post was born. What I’d say to your child is not necessarily what every single adult in the community would say. Our experiences, although similar, are unique and varied.”
