Sensory Processing Disorder Update: A Must Read!
I received an update last evening from the desk of Lucy Jane Miller. Seems the APA (American Psychiatric Association) has announced the third and final opportunity for public feedback on the upcoming DSM- 5 to be published in 2013. In the newsletter, Dr. Miller gives an update on the status of her research on SPD and involvement with the DSM criteria for inclusion to date. Basically SPD will likely not be included as a new separate diagnostic category but the subtype SOR (Sensory Over-Responsivity) will likely be included as one of several criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder. Please take the time to review this newest SPD Foundation update for more details on the proposed plan. There is a web page on the link that includes instructions and samples suggestion on how to word/submit your comments. Let's continue to support Dr. Miller and the Foundation in getting SPD into the DSM-5! The deadline for commenting is June 15th. Thanks for your support!
