Brain Balance Achievement Center of Valparaiso Has a Program for Children with Sensory Processing Disorder
About Sensory Processing Disorder
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), also called Sensory Integration Dysfunction, is a disorder in which the brain cannot properly integrate multisensory input. This results in hypersensitivity (over-responsiveness to stimuli) or hyposensitivity (under-responsiveness to stimuli). Sensory Processing Disorder affects everyday functioning because children with SPD are highly affected by their sensory preferences.
Children with Sensory Processing Disorder are generally very particular with their likes and dislikes. If a child is affected by hypersensitivity, they may have extreme or fearful responses to specific textures, sounds, and tastes. Conversely, children with hyposensitivity may seem fearless, inappropriately touching people and/or objects and putting themselves in dangerous situations due to their under-reaction to pain.
The Brain Balance Achievement Center of Valparaiso provides a drug-free approach to SPD help. We believe that the best way to address your child’s Sensory Processing Disorder is by addressing the disorder at its core rather than just attacking the symptoms. At Brain Balance Achievement Center of Valparaiso, our goal is to help your child with their Sensory Processing Disorder by creating the best program for them.
