My oldest also has SPD (diagnosed in February). His biggest triggers are sound, light, and strange environments or situations. His occupational therapist tries to help, but she's really not trained in that area. We've been in contact with a psychologist, and we're reading a couple of books on the subject. How about you?

Thanks girls! Chyrstal, nice to have someone to relate to, lol! Jonah is triggered by lights, noise, that kind of stuff. But.... he's also sensory seeking, which can sometimes be a pain. He chews on EVERYTHING, and moves constantly. I'm hoping to be ablt to find things to help him calm enough to concentrate on lessons! He does ok, but sometimes, just needs to MOVE

Yeah, Ben's chewing isn't extreme, but he still puts things in his mouth constantly like a baby.

The nice thing about homeschooling is that you can tailor it to a mover. Make your activities active, take frequent breaks, and set skills to music.
