The biggest difference, hands down, that Sensory Processing Disorder has made in our family is opening up our awareness of how much environment can affect people. Not just kids with special needs, but anyone can be affected. It changes your perspective and your approach, and my reaction to our son's diagnosis was to be very open about SPD. My husband and I will talk about it with school officials, other parents, and strangers.
The part that I find amazing is that, while there are still people who feel my son is 'weird' or 'out of control', there are a lot more who come up to us at amusement parks or fairs and ask, "Where did you get those headphones? Do they help? My child doesn't like loud sounds either!" There have been lots of times where I've written out notes and websites for strangers so maybe they can help their child or family member.
