Okay, so remember my last post? Back Talk and Disrespect? The information was taken from Jane Nelsen et al. (Positive Discilpine: A-Z). Well, according to The Institute on HeartMath, "author, speaker, educator, psychologist and counselor Dr. Jane Nelsen," is "one of today’s leading and most respected voices on the subject (of positive discipline)."
Sign-up for the free webinar on Cultivating Positive Discipline for Children with Jane Nelsen, author/co-author of bestselling Positive Discipline series and HeartMath Education Specialist Jeff Goelitz.

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects at least one in twenty children. Children with SPD don't process or experience sensory information the way other typical children do; therfore, they don't behave the way other children do. They struggle to perform tasks that come easier for other children. Consequently they suffer a loss of quality in their social, personal, emotional and academic life.

The Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation is dedicated to continue their research into the knowledge and treatment of SPD, so that, as Lucy Jane Miller writes in her book "Sensations Kids", "the millions of sensational children currently "muddling through" daily life will enjoy the same hope and help that research and recognition already have bestowed on coutless other conditions that once baffled science and disrupted lives."
