I have two questions for everyone, please chime in with your response!

How has having a child with SPD changed you as a parent?

What do you still struggle with in regards to their SPD?

I finally figured out that my son is VERY sensitive to my moods. I had to learn that I ned to not yell and get upset with him so much. If I stay calm, he will stay calm. We are still struggling with his social problems. He is great with adults and older children,but won't interact with children his own age at all. We tried a playgroup through EI. Forget it. He sat with me the whole time.
