The study's findings confirm what many parents, educators, medical professionals and therapists have known or suspected for years, that Sensory Processing Disorder is real, and that it has a biological basis.
While it is true that children engage in typical sensory exploration, children whose reactions to sensory input, either avoiding, seeking or a combination thereof, have brains that process information differently than those who do not.
This is not the result of bad parenting. It is not the result of willful misbehavior.
Best of all, we can help their sensory systems come into synchronicity through activities which encourage connections between these sensory systems.
