SPD class

Well, I did not spend the weekend with my kids. I went to a class on SPD with the author of "Sensational Kids." It was a great workshop with parents from through-out the country. There were about 20 of us total. It was so reaffirming and clarified some things too. I definately left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

The STAR Center was very cool, though I am not ready to switch therapists. The only thing they had that I would love to have at our Sensory room was a climbing wall. DS loves those things. We had a class full of "Sensory Seekers" so it was great to share ideas. Even if you are from out of town, you can do lots of therapy at STAR>

I wish DH could have gone too, but someone had to stay with the kids. I admire those parents that are able to really figure out how to work together. For us, I tell DH what I find out and things to do. He is not so interested in the "Why" we do things. He does see progress in DS though.

I would recommend this class for everyone. Their intensive therapy sessions are wonderful and kids can make some great progress. One thing I loved is that at STAR they do therapy on Saturdays-nice for those of us working or traveling!

It started with a flyer in DS preschool class. If I can find it, I will forward the info.

Check the STAR website too. There is another class in August. About 1/2 the people there were from out of state, which shocked me. When you register, it is for a couple.

It was lots of good information and affirmations that we are doing the right thing (at least most of the time.) Hearing stories from others was great, and Dr. Miller and her colleagues were so professional and kind. Then, seeing the center was the best. We will not be changing to the center, though I will keep in touch for supporting them and the great things they do.
