We are fortunate to have Dr. Lucy Jane Miller coming to the 2007 Annual Meeting to speak about sensory processing/PWS in one of our sessions. Some of you will recognize Dr. Miller from her book on sensory processing, Sensational Kids. If you haven’t read it, you will want to get a copy of her book and read it before the meeting in October. Here is the amazon.com link. http://www.amazon. com/Sensational- Kids-Children-Processing-Disorder/dp/0399153373
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a condition affecting at least one in twenty children who experience sensations in taste, touch, sound, sight, smell, movement, and body awareness in a vastly different manner from how other children their ages do. What may be typical activities for most kids are a daily struggle that may result in social, emotional, or academic problems.Dr. Lucy Jane Miller, the best-known SPD researcher in the world, brings together a lifetime of study to teach parents and others the signs and symptoms of SPD and its four major subtypes; ways the disorder is diagnosed and treated; sensory strategies for living with the condition; and methods to help SPD kids thrive.
