Wow, how do you go about educating the whole world about something? Even in this age of massive communication, it's impossible to try and share something with everyone. I have this burden to inform people everywhere about sensory issues, but it's really not possible is it? Even with Carol Kranowitz's successful book, The Out-of-Sync Child, and Ayres Book, Sensory Integration and the Child, there's still no way to get the information into everyone's hands.
I have quenched my desire to tell many through publishing my magazine, but that's still not "many" enough. I've been asked to speak for two companies across the country starting in the fall. Although I look forward to those audiences, at this point, it's still only speaking to 20-25 groups over several months and that's not "many" enough.
As always, it seems the age old tradition called "word of mouth" will be the most extensive and lasting way to reach the masses. I'd love to hear from any of you who may have a newsletter or listserve that would be interested in spreading the word during National Sensory Awareness Month in October. Maybe between you, me and enough outlets we could reach "many" more.
Just a thought.
