Diane M. Renna resides in Long Island, NY with her husband, Lorenzo and their children, Meghan, Michael, and Gavin. In 1998, she left work in NYC to become a stay-at-home mom. Diane, Meghan, and Michael are all affected in some way with sensory integration dysfunction. However, Meghan's sensory issues were more severe and affected her daily life tremendously. Diane read and learned all she could about SPD. She never complained or gave up hope. She investigated and tried alternative therapies with the vision of helping her children. She understood and wanted to make their world a safe and comfortable place. Diane has dedicated her time to helping children with SPD. She wants to reach as many families as possible. Presently, the family is happy, healthy, and enjoys doing the things they weren't able to do in the past. SPD is no longer a jail-keeper to their lives. The Renna family hopes Meghan's story will inspire and heal other families dealing with SPD.
