Behaviors We Treat
Many children have sensory disorders in a range of severity. Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) occur when sensory signals are either not detected or don't get organized into appropriate responses. It is sometimes described as a “traffic jam” because the brain has trouble sorting where responses to stimuli should be directed. This typically consists of physical sensitivity, light sensitivity, and sound sensitivity. Symptoms are generally classified by over-responding or under-responding. A child who over-responds may display severe agitation from a simple pat on the arm, or be distressed by a seemingly simple noise like the doorbell ringing.
Another child may under-respond and display minimal or no reaction to stimulation, such as pain or extreme temperatures, or just may be slow to respond to sensation. Children whose sensory processing of messages from the muscles and joints is impaired, posture and motor skills may be affected as well. Early intervention can drastically reduce the effects of sensory processing disorders.
