October is National Sensory Awareness Month in the US

October is National Sensory Awareness Month created by Kathleen Morris from Sensory Integration Focus.

You can download a free poster of 10 signs and symptoms of SPD from SensoryStreet to raise awareness, thanks to Ida Zelaya.

Do share with doctors, teachers, nursery schools, family and health professionals.  The more people are aware about Sensory Processing, the earlier children can get help they need.

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a real neurological problem affecting 5 to 13% of children entering school.  With help from an Occupational Therapist trained in Sensory Integration, children with SPD show improvements in attention, learning, movement, socialization, coping and self-esteem.
