As we celebrate our one year anniversary as a community, we would like to thank our wonderful sponsors that have supported our site through advertising, giveaways and collaboration the past year.
We couldn’t have made this a great year without your support. You helped keep the SPDBN running by bringing valuable tools to our community and sharing our site with others to get the word out around sensory challenges.
You are our ROCKS and we thank you for everything you have done.
We’d like to share our sponsors’ pages and encourage you to visit their sites. There is much you can learn or gain from their services and products.

Thank you on behalf of the SPDBN community and we look forward to another year together.
One week ago, our website went live.
We had a new home. We had new writers. We had a new logo.
And we had a new mascot – a giant octopus. He’s cute. He’s purple. But he doesn’t have a name.
We need to fix that. Today.
It’s time for…
NAME THAT OCTOPUS!
Please give me a name!!
We need your help. We want YOU to name him!
We’re having a contest to see who can come up with the best name for our purple octopus.
Be creative. Think about the name’s meaning and how it relates to SPD. Is it a girl? A boy? An…it?
The contest is sponsored by Soft Clothing and the winner will receive a Soft Clothing outfit for their child! And, what would an octopus-naming-contest be without an octopus prize? Lori from Stress Free Kids has graciously offered a download of her book The Angry Octopus which guides children through relaxation techniques to teach them to handle their anger. A big THANK YOU to both sponsors for sponsoring our prizes! Now to the contest…
