Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), a brain condition affecting more children than ADHD or autism, is not as well known as other childhood conditions, which leads to the misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment of an untold number of children every year. The SPD Awareness Event put on by the SPD Parent Zone Organization on Saturday, October 2nd, 2010, seeks to raise awareness of this exclusive disorder. Sensational Celebrations are being held around the country, as well as several countries worldwide, to provide information about SPD in honor of the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation’s 30th anniversary. The event will benefit the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation, a worldwide charity dedicated to SPD research, education, and advocacy, as well as the SPD Parent Zone Organization to help raise money for families that cannot afford therapy services. The Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation is led by the world-renowned researcher, therapist, and author of ‘Sensational Kids,’ Dr. Lucy Jane Miller, who has been researching this disorder for more than 30 years.
