Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) Parenting Group


The SPD Parenting Support Group meetings are now meeting online using Zoom.

Now in its 9th year, the SPD Parenting Group meets monthly to provide education, share resources, and offer support to parents who have children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and/or are considered Highly Sensitive.

Many parents come to our meetings feeling unsure, isolated, and overwhelmed. My colleague, Jenny Burnsed, MS, LPC and I started this group as a way for parents to support each other and not feel so alone. This gathering of wise and caring parents typically meets the 1st Monday of the month and we focus on teaching parenting strategies that work. We spend half of our meeting discussing the monthly topic and the other half sharing ideas, building community, and offering resources.  This parenting group is always open to new participants, so feel free to drop in whenever the topic appeals to you.
