Sensory Integration Dysfunction
(SID, also called sensory processing disorder)
is a neurological disorder causing difficulties with processing information from the five classic senses (vision, auditory, touch, olfaction, and taste), the sense of movement (vestibular system), and/or the positional sense (proprioception).
For those with SID, sensory information is sensed normally, but perceived abnormally. This is not the same as blindness or deafness, because, unlike those disorders, sensory information is sensed by people with SID, but the information tends to be analyzed by the brain in an unusual way that may cause distress or confusion.
It can also be a characteristic of other neurological conditions, including autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, Developmental Dyspraxia, Tourette Syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and speech delays, among many others.
Unlike many neurological problems that require validation by a licensed psychiatrist or physician, this condition is most often diagnosed by an occupational therapist. It is increasingly being diagnosed by developmental pediatricians, pediatric neurologists, and child psychologists. While it has not yet been included in the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual as a discrete diagnosis, Regulatory-Sensory Processing Disorder is an accepted diagnosis in Stanley Greenspan’s Diagnostic Manual for Infancy and Early Childhood and the Zero to Three’s Diagnostic Classification.
There is no known cure; however, there are many treatments available.

Alanis first day of Occupational Therapy /Sensory integration with her therapist Sheyla , God Bless her and her work !.

"School Of Life"
"Let us not become tired of doing good.
At the right time we will gather a crop if we don't give up."
Years ago I heard a story about a little boy whose mother put him on the bus for school. Before the bus doors closed and the mother could walk away, the little boy turned around and got back off.
“What are you doing?” the mother asked. “You need to go to school.”
“I know,” he answered. “But I want to stay home today. School is hard, and sometimes it’s boring. And besides, it takes too long.”
The wise mother knelt down and looked him in the eyes. “Son,” she said, “you just described life. Now get back on the bus.”
Lately I have noticed that many of us (myself included!) have had some very long, extremely hard, and sometimes boring days at “school,” and we’ve been tempted to get off the bus and just go back home. It seems no matter how hard we try or how much effort or time we expend, no one appreciates it and we just don’t see much in the way of a return on our investment.
But God sees what we do. He knows our heart, and He knows that we are often weary and on the edge of discouragement. But He has given us a great promise in Galatians 6:9 that if we will not grow weary while doing good and fulfilling His purpose and call for our lives, then “in due season” we will reap the reward for our efforts. We will see that lost one come to Jesus. We will receive the necessary provision or the long-awaited healing. We will experience that restored relationship. We may even be recognized for the long hours we put into working for the Kingdom. Or not.
And that’s the key—that we hold tight to God’s promise and His faithfulness, even if we don’t see the rewards in this lifetime. If we know that we know that we KNOW that we are following hard after Him, pursuing the goal He has set for us, then we don’t need to lose heart, regardless of the results (or lack thereof). We don’t know the “due season” in which we shall reap what we have sown in His name, but we can trust Him to bring it to pass in the fullness of His time. And when He does, the joy will more than compensate any tears we may have shed along the way.
So stay on the bus, beloved! Life is sometimes hard, sometimes boring, and sometimes seems to take forever. But we serve a mighty God—and we serve Him shoulder to shoulder, together. It is an honor to sit next to you on the bus.
MAY OUR LORD BLESS YOU TODAY AND EVERY DAY

Michael Phelps ADHD is not an attention deficit
To much of the ADHD community, Michael Phelps’s phenomenal swimming at the Bejing Summer Olympics is a beacon of pride and hope. For all the advances in diagnosing and treating ADHD, it remains greatly stigmatized. In chat rooms and bulletin boards people post items like “ADHD is not a disability” as a way of giving support to those who are living with it. Yet, after we watch Michael Phelps, his fierce determination and single-minded focus, it is clear that even the name Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder falls short in describing just what ADHD is. Clearly Michael Phelps has no shortage of attention!
Many people have no idea that Michael Phelps has ADHD, yet he hasn’t kept it a secret. In an August 13, 2008 TimesOnline article, his mother is quoted as saying, “In kindergarten I was told by his teacher, ‘Michael can’t sit still, Michael can’t be quiet, Michael can’t focus.’ I said, maybe he’s bored. The teacher said that was impossible. “He’s not gifted,” came back the reply. “Your son will never be able to focus on anything.”
How many people with ADHD are told just that – you’ll never be able to focus on anything! Obviously after Michael Phelps’s summer of 2008 performance, it’s clear that ADHD does not have to stop you from focusing on and reaching your dreams.
Today let’s take a page from Michael’s book and channel our passions. If we do, imagine what we can accomplish. As his coach, Bob Bowman, says, “One of the things I call Michael is the motivation machine. Bad moods, good moods, he channels everything for gain. He’s motivated by success, he loves to swim fast and when he does that he goes back and trains better. He’s motivated by failure, by money, by people saying things about him … just anything that comes along he turns into a reason to train harder, swim better. Channelling his energy is one of his greatest attributes.”
Congratulations Michael on your gold bonanza. And thank you for providing the ADHD community a role model that shatters all of our sterotypes!
Now it’s your turn, what motivates you to succeed?

Yo Soy ……
Soy el trenecito que si lo puede . Cuando en el camino de la vida Mis rrieles me llevaron a una Montana - El diagnostico de AUTISMO yo lo mire como un desafio , Pensando que no abria forma de superarlo .
Una y otra ves , Me dije “ Pienso que si lo lograre , Pienso que si lo lograre.
Fue entonces que comense a subir esta Montana el Senor a puesto en frente de mi repitiendo.
Contigo “Senor lo lograre” , contigo “Senor lo lograre.”
Estoy sobrepasando este diagnostico de Autismo y en este camino solo tomo la fuerza que solamente puede venir de aquel quien le dio la vida a mis hijos . (Filipenses 4:13)
Soy mas dedicada que la esposa de Noe . Me encuenro en este apartamento como en el bote por 365 dias y 365 noches al ano .
Cuando el viento de soledad y monotomia es insoportable . No me paro y me alejo , Mas bien me arrodillo ala orilla de mi cama y busco el rostro de mi senor para poder mirar el arco iris que solamente el Espiritu Santo puede traerme. (Romanos 5:5)
Soy una madre Cristiana , Un guerrero de Cristo , Con mi armadura de hierro puedo pelear a cualquiera que se ponga en frente del progreso de mis hijos …..
Con la fuerza que el Senor me brinda puedo mirar sobre las miradas y ignorancia de aquellas personas cuales no saben enterder lo que es vivir con Autismo.
Por la inteligencia que El Creador me a brindado tengo la capacidad de educar a aquellos que lo permiten . De la misma forma puedo pelear al Distrito escolar para obtener los derechos de educacion que mis hijos necesitan. (Efesios 6:11)
Estoy armada para la batalla diaria….
Mi nombre es Gloria !!. Madre de hijos speciales que a sido traida a este mundo para tocar el Corazon y el alma de muchos padres que se
en cuentran en la misma posicion mia sin ninguna esperanza de sanacion.
Todo a comensado con migo . Por medio de haberme abierto los ojos a las maravillas y grandesas de mi Salvador . Aprendiendo de ese amor que palabras no pueden expresar (2 Timoteo 4:2)
Soy David ,” En la ley del senor me deleito dia y noche “ ( Salmo 1:2)
Estoy siento tocada por angeles , Angeles que viven en un mundo de inocencia y puridad , Un mundo sin odio ni mentira . Un mundo donde siempre hay tiempo , no hay dolor ni odio .
Estas maletas que cargo son tan pesadas que otra persona creo que no podria con ellas , Pero la seguridad que El Senor me librara de todo esto , Me trae lagrimas de felizidad . Al mirar los abances de mis hijos solo hacen que estas maletas sean menos pezadas.
Seguramente si estoy siendo tocada por angeles …
Yo soy especial porque ellos son speciales ……
