Sight, Smell, Touch, Hear

These are all senses. For Hunter his sences work a little different than ours. Here is the definition from Wiki Sensory Processing Disorder or SPD is a neurological disorder causing difficulties with processing information from the five senses (vision, auditory, touch, olfaction, and taste), the sense of movement (vestibular system), and/or the positional sense (proprioception). For those with SPD, sensory information is sensed, but perceived abnormally. Unlike blindness or deafness, sensory information is received by people with SPD; the difference is that information is processed by the brain in an unusual way that may cause distress or confusion.
SPD is its own diagnosis, but it can be linked to other neurological conditions, including
autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, Developmental Dyspraxia, Tourette syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and speech delays, among many others. The meaning of SPD falls under the DSM-IV criteria for Asperger syndrome. [1]. There is no known cure; however, there are many treatments available. This can affect
daily functioning
social and family relationships
behavioral challenges
regulating emotions
We are working with a developmental pediatrican and occupational therapist to help Hunter cope. With great doctors and a great son like Hunter with the will to please and desire to learn Hunter will do great and thrive! I will keep everyone up to date on his progress.
