My son has Sensory Processsing Disorder, so I can relate to this mom. It’s a tricky thing, and things people take for granted can make or break a child with SPD. Excellent Blog!

a diary of a mom


Editor’s note:

My daughter didn’t write this.

I did.

It’s a guess. A guess as to what it feels like to be inside her head. A guess based on years upon years of watching her, listening to her and collecting and piecing together every clue she has offered, in whatever way she offered them.

You see, I spend a lot of time trying to understand my daughter’s experience from the inside out. Given that it’s fundamentally different from my own in many ways, I think it’s important. Because if I don’t, I will make faulty assumptions based on my own experience that simply won’t apply to or for her.

It’s not always easy. In fact, at times it feels damned near impossible. But over time, and especially in recent years as both her ability to speak my language and my ability to speak hers have improved, it’s gotten easier.
