Is Sensitivity Common in ADHD Kids?

"My daughter is very sensitive. Is sensitivity common in ADHD kids?

by Larry Silver, M.D.


Some children with ADHD also have Sensory Integration Disorder (also referred to as Sensory Processing Disorder or Sensory Integration Dysfunction). This disorder may be manifested by fine motor and/or gross motor coordination problems, balance difficulties, and/or tactile sensitivity. Your daughter's behaviors may be caused by tactile sensitivity. Have her evaluated by an occupational therapist.
