Sensory Perception Disorder

I substitute and last year there was a 4 year old in the early intervention class room. He had sensory perception disorder. He didn't like being touched because it would hurt him. He also had a hard time speaking. He would get treatment from the occupational therapist of the school. They practiced retraining the processes. And he had improved from when he first started at age 3.
Sensory processing disorder is a problem with the way that information is interpreted in the brain. The best way to define this is when the nervous system receives messages from the senses and the signals don't get organized into appropriate responses. This can result in less response or to high a response. The video I have added compares this as the person being a radio that's volume is turned up to high or in some cases to low. The disorder causes discomfort during everyday life and has to be adjusted to make comfortable. This is why they perceive different sensations from what the most of us may respond with.
