Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

I am currently learning tons about Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).  We are suspecting that our son has it and while he gets officially diagnosed I am reading and learning as much as possible to be able to help him.  I am reading the Out of Sync Child and the Out of Sync Child has Fun both by Carol Stock Kranowitz.  So far I answered a questionnaire and was able to determine which areas he needs the most help.  The books also have tons of activities to do with them.  I have so far tried home made play doh, silly putty, walking on a sheet of bubble wrap, home made oobleck, and recently ordered him a trampoline to get him jumping. 
I will be posting photos and recipes for the home made items.  I will also be posting some more detailed information on what I learn about SPD as I go thru this journey with our son.
