This is the story of our family’s journey with a child with Sensory Processing Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Our son is eight years old and neurotypical. Our youngest, Ellie is 5 years old and has SPD, ASD and ADHD. This blog is an open and honest depiction of our lives as we struggle with these diagnoses. You will get to see our successes and failures. Hopefully we can help others through Ellie’s story.
“When I was little and struggling in school, the research and strategies were not yet available to help me do better. Today I find that there are plenty of evidence-based programs and methods that are dramatically helping all sorts of issues concerning our kids. They are spreading like wild fire all over the world. If you are sitting there as a parent thinking “There has to be a better life than this for my child and our family,” I want to encourage you that you are correct. Things can be better. They will be better. You have much to feel hopeful about.”
