Today I have a personal 1-2-1 Confidence Class in my practice at home with a lovely boy who has been diagnosed as having Semantic Pragmatic Disorder.

For those of you unfamiliar with it here’s a personal account from the helpful website Hi2u that offers a range of helpful advice , information and articles on ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Dyslexia and Semantic Pragmatic Disorder

“Most people in the field of autistic disorders do not consider there is any value in separating semantic-pragmatic disorder from the autistic spectrum. The disadvantage of doing so is the failure to recognize the child’s whole pattern of disabilities and therefore a failure to address all their needs. It is also most misleading for the parents.”

“I am the mother of a child with Semantic Pragmatic Disorder. I was asked to write this article for the Hi2u website so that people unfamiliar with this disorder can begin to understand what it means to have SPD. My hope is that it also gives teachers and other professionals involved with a child with SPD an insight to what life can be like for the parents and carers too.
