ABC’s of SPD: A is for Attitude

Round 5 of Blogging through the Alphabet is starting this week on Ben and Me. I have said a few times I wanted to participate but never jumped on board, so here I go! I wasn’t sure if I would pick some random topics or try to stay within a specific topic. You can probably […]

ARK Therapeutic Review

Disclosure: I received the products mentioned to facilitate my Ark Therapeutic review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would be good for my readers. All opinions are my own and those of my family. Having three children with special needs, I appreciate quality therapy tools. Our oldest son is on the Autism Spectrum, and […]

Breakthrough in Sensory Processing Disorder Research

Recently there has a new breakthrough study in Sensory Processing Disorder Research. I’m only going to paraphrase it, but you can read the full article from UCSF where they explain their Study Reveals Biological Basis for Sensory Processing Disorders. As a parent with children that have SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) this is big news. As […]

Weekly Wrap-up: Rocky Recovery

This week started off with our little guy’s surgery on Monday. It started off as I expected. He isn’t a “morning person” for one (just like his momma!), so he was crying about even going to the hospital. Then he refused to put his name bracelet on once we checked in. Then he screamed about […]

Flummox and Friends is a show with a unique spin. It’s fun and quirky and covers some very important skills that most don’t. Social skills. In fact, they referred to them as the “unspoken rules,” and I honestly didn’t think about this until now, but they pretty much are! This is exactly why I was […]

Faces of Sensory Processing Disorder

As you know, our younger 2 children have Sensory Processing Disorder, but the picture in the middle might surprise you. Yes, that’s me. After almost 3 years of “maybe this,” “maybe that,” and a definite misdiagnosis everything has finally come together. I have Sensory Processing Disorder. Knowing what I know about it and all I’ve […]

Re-evaluations for Speech

Yesterday was the 6 month re-evaluation for the boys’ Speech Therapy. It’s a chance to re-visit their goals, see their progress, and possibly make new goals. Sometimes, though, it can mean ending their services. That isn’t always a good thing, either. So here is what is going on with our boys and their speech. Little […]

Our toddler’s Sleep Study

So last night our toddler had his sleep study. I know I’ve posted a few times about his sleep concerns. Some of them are related to his Sensory Processing Disorder, but because he does snore we knew it was best to make sure something physical wasn’t going on. He also has a GI appointment coming […]
