Welcome To Our SPD Community

My name is Jeanette Loftus and Sensory Processing Disorder Parent Support is a community that I created almost twelve years ago when my daughter Bean was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder.

I didn't know what Sensory Processing Disorder was at that time because I had not heard about it before. Since that day, I have learned that I also have Sensory Processing Disorder too. 

Sensory Processing Disorder Parent Support has become a place to seek support from other parents who are also struggling with their children. 

It's a community to share with others what I have learned from my own two children who have special needs. My children have been diagnosed with multiple diagnosis including Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, and ADHD.   

Supporting, learning, sharing and growing together.

 My two children are now adults (21 & 26) and I am a Grandma to two beautiful grandsons Edison and Ellis. 

This is a safe place to find support, get to know other parents who have children with SPD, ask questions, learn, share success and spread awareness. 

Welcome! I am so happy you found us!   

This SPD community for parents, grandparents, family, friends, caregivers, therapists, teachers, professionals, community providers and all others who work with and love children and youth with special needs and Sensory Processing Disorder.  

Children that have Sensory Processing Disorder require specialized services, love and a good support team to be successful in home, school and in the community. 

I welcome and encourage everyone to enjoy our community and it's contents, by working together as a team providing consistency in our children's lives, and effectively communicating with each other. I hope to make a real and lasting impact in the lives of children with Sensory Processing Disorder.
