Sensory sensitivities are a common but misunderstood problem that affect behavior, influencing the way children learn, move, relate to others, and feel about themselves.
Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is often missed or misdiagnosed — particularly when a child also exhibits symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity (ADHD). Impulsivity and inattention, for example, are characteristic of both ADHD and SPD. About 40 percent of people with ADHD also have SPD, so it is no wonder that parents struggle to secure the most accurate diagnosis and most helpful treatments for their children. Here, top experts Carol Kranowitz and Lindsey Biel will clarify the differences and offer an effective approach for supporting kids with overlapping disorders.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- On-the-spot, sensory strategies for helping children with SPD and ADHD function better in commonly problematic situations when out and about (playground, barbershop, birthday party)
- Strategies for everyday situations when at home (grooming, dressing, doing chores)
- Strategies to encourage more competent work and play at school
