Memorial Scholarship Fund for Dr. Stanley Greenspan
A Letter to the Community from Dr. Lucy Jane Miller
In recent years, Dr. Greenspan has put countless hours into the organization he founded, the Interdisciplinary Council on Learning and Developmental Disorders (ICDL). Several years ago, it was our honor to work closely with him on revision of the IDCL Diagnostic Manual. It is partly due to this tremendous collaboration that Sensory Processing Disorder is still being considered for inclusion in the DSM-5.
The field of child development has lost a great leader, but the world has benefitted immeasurably from his life’s work. As Margaret Mead said:
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
It is also true that every small group needs a visionary, a dreamer, and a leader to move it forward. For ICDL, that visionary was Dr. Greenspan.
We will all miss your energy and wisdom, Stanley, but we will celebrate your lessons. And we promise we will continue to teach our students what you have taught us about children and regulation . . . and in turn they will teach their students for generations to come. In that way, your knowledge and methods will help children with developmental, sensory, and regulatory disorders forever.
Please join us in honoring Dr. Greenspan’s lifetime of work with special children by making a memorial donation to his dream to educate future leaders in the assessment and treatment of developmental, sensory, and regulatory disorders.
