Introduction to Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD)
Exploring Sensory Processing Issues In Children and Adolescents
Issues with sensory processing can often remain masked early in a child’s life and the symptoms labeled by doctors as something they’ll grow out of or something behavioral that they will adjust to with time and parental boundaries. The truth is symptoms of over-sensitivity, under-sensitivity and poor self-regulation can be related to a challenged sensory system that needs tending to in order to help it wire together more effectively in the nervous system to increase organization and self-regulation and decrease maladaptive coping strategies.
