Through understanding comes respect.
This book was inspired by the author's daughter, Jaimie, who struggles with SPD. It was written to validate Jaimie's feelings and to show her other children feel things the way she does. This book can help children with SPD learn how to explain their disorder to others; help peers understand what children with SPD go through; and also help therapists, teachers and/or counselors learn how to talk about it. Helping others learn about children with special needs brings understanding to them and help to make them seem less...different. This revised edition of I'm Not Weird, I Have SPD, includes suggested activities teachers or caregivers can do with children to help develop a deeper understanding of how SPD "feels."
