* your son will hold your hand for only a little while, but he will hold your heart for a lifetime!
This will be my first blog on this site, and hopefully I will find some relief at realizing I am not alone with my son’s SPD. I like to pretend my situation is pretty on the “normal side” however sometimes I feel like as a single mother raising an 7 year old with SPD can be very overwhelming at times.
This past Christmas has seemed to be the hardest on my son when it comes to his SPD. I wish others saw the little “signs” I see, the little eye movements,the jumping,the tensing up, the sweating, the chewing that come with any change to his environment. To everyone else it’s a simple “settle down Blake”. But OOOOOO do I wish they understood more of what is currently happening in that little brain of his. I actually HATE and do I mean HATE those two simple words (settle down).
I always believed that with age certain things would “be better” with him howeverIi am quickly learning that with age comes more difficulties then I ever imagined. So here I am, I guess, to share my struggles and/or stories with other parents who can also relate to what it is like to raise a child with SPD.
