Transcript of Sensory Processing Disorder

Sensory Processing Disorder "Imagine driving a car that isn't working well. When you step on the gas the car sometimes lurches forward and sometimes doesn't respond. When you blow the horn it sounds blaring. The brakes sometimes slow the car, but not always. The blinkers work occasionally, the steering is erratic, and the speedometer is inaccurate. You are engaged in a constant struggle to keep the car on the road, and it is difficult to concentrate on anything else." -Stanley Greenspan SPD Sensory processing disorder is a neurological disorder

from the five senses (vision, auditory, touch, olfaction, and taste),
the sense of movement (vestibular system),
and/or the positional sense (proprioception). (Wikipedia) Symptoms Running into objects Uncoordination Overly sensitive to noise Picky eating habits Sensitive to clothing fiber Restless Public meltdowns Sound like ADD?
