Parent ConnectionsA grassroots network with active groups in more than 80 U.S. communities and several foreign countries, SPD Parent Connections provides support and information to anyone dealing with sensory processing issues. Group discussions, education, resources, and guest speakers hosted by SPD Parent Connection groups give parents, grandparents, caregivers, and others living with sensational children a place to share stories and resources and to support one another.
