Sensory processing disorder is real to thousands of kids - The Boston Globe
I am interested to know what kind of services, if any, Ana receives from her public school. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and its Massachusetts equivalent seems like it should apply in this case. I am a special education lawyer and help children like Ana and her parents advocate for their legal right to free and appropriate education. While a DSM addition would certainly help children like Ana receive appropriate accommodations, it is not legally necessary.
