What Is Sensory Processing Disorder?
Sensory Processing Disorder refers to a difficulty in processing sensory information. Please understand that we all have difficulty processing certain sensory stimuli (a certain touch, smell, taste, sound, movement etc.) and we all have sensory preferences. It only becomes a sensory processing disorder when we are on extreme ends of the continuum or experience “disruptive, unpredictable fluctuations which significantly impact our developmental skills or everyday functioning.
What Are a Child’s Motor and Sensory Systems?
The Motor System is the part of the nervous system that is involved with movement. If a child has problems, of any kind, within this area, then it is likely that their movement will be affected.
The sensory System is the area of the nervous system which is concerned with processing sensory information, i.e. understanding what are seeing (vision), hearing (auditory), tasting (gustatory), balance/movement (vestibular) and touching (somatic sensation).
