Sensory Processing Disorder- Is it Real?


From the American Board of Pediatrics- “…there is no universally accepted framework for diagnosis; sensory processing disorder generally should not be diagnosed.”
Proponents believe that children with Sensory Processing Disorder have difficulty processing outside stimuli that can affect learning, behavior, attention and daily tasks.
Parents should work with their pediatrician and other clinicians to fully investigate treatments recommended as there may be other diagnosis that should be assessed. http://www.chadd.org/Understanding-ADHD/About-ADHD/ADHD-Weekly-Archive/Newsletter-Article.aspx?id=212
