Watch the free replay of the webinar Coping with Sensory Processing Disorder in Adolescents & Adults with Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A., which originally aired Wednesday, May 25th, 2016 and download the expert slides.

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) manifests in many small, sometimes maddening ways. Itchy tags may be unbearable. Loud music intolerable. Perfume simply sickening. Whatever the specific symptoms, SPD makes it difficult to interact with your daily environment. This impacts how you relate to others, study and learn, participate in sports and group activities, and follow your dreams. It is a unique and challenging neurological condition associated with inefficient processing of sensory information, and it deserves close study and serious support.

This webinar will discuss SPD in adolescents and adults, and will contain information helpful to parents, teachers, therapists, and other family members. Based on the just-published book, The Out-of-Sync Child Grows Up: Coping with SPD in the Adolescent and Young Adult Years, it will cover

> First-person accounts of growing up with SPD

> Unique strategies for living better with SPD, including how to find comfortable clothes, eat out, get out of the house, shop, sleep, socialize, and date

> Suggested treatment options, from occupational therapy using sensory integration techniques (OT-SI) to “do-it-yourself” treatments

> Insights and perspectives from patients who view SPD as a gift
