Sensory sensitivities are a common but misunderstood problem that affect behavior, influencing the way children learn, move, relate to others, and feel about themselves.
About 40 percent of people with ADHD also have Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), a condition that causes over- or under-sensitivity to touch sensations, movement, sounds and other stimuli. Sensory issues interfere with children’s participation and enjoyment in everyday experiences at home, at school, and out in the world. Here, top experts Carol Kranowitz and Lindsey Biel will offer an effective approach for supporting kids with overlapping disorders.
