68: Parenting a Child With Sensory Processing Disorder | Dayna Abraham

special needs Jun 15, 2021

Dayna was in shock as she sat across from the school principal and was told, “You need to find out what’s wrong with your son.” Soon after, Dayna discovered that her son has Sensory Processing Disorder. Listen as Dayna shares simple strategies for empowering our kids to express their needs.


  • “The principal looked at me and she said, you’ve got two options. You can let him take your son away, or you can take your son and not bring him back ‘till you figure out what’s wrong with him.” – Dayna Abraham
  • “I think that the world tells us so many lies and myths about what moms should and shouldn’t do. And that being a mom should be enough. Being a mom is an identity. Being a mom isn’t a job, it’s not a thing that keeps you going. It is who you are, but sometimes, we have something better inside of us that allows us to actually be a better mom, a better parent. It shows our kids that we can go for our dreams and we can take action on them. That we can overcome massive obstacles, that we can do things no matter what our circumstances are, no matter what our environment is, that we can reinvent, rebuild ourselves, and go save the world.” – Dayna Abraham
