How to Use This Course

Understanding Sensory Processing Disorders is a series of articles that enables parents to better understand their children’s sensory processing disorders (SPDs) and set them up to succeed instead of fail. It looks at what SPDs are and are not and how parents can help children excel, as well as offering plenty of encouragement for parents along the way.
