We Help Children with Sensory Processing Disorder in West Springfield
Hope for Sensory Processing Disorder
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), also called Sensory Integration Dysfunction, is a disorder in which the brain cannot properly integrate multisensory input. Sensory Processing Disorder affects everyday functioning because children with SPD are highly affected by their sensory preferences. When the brain has trouble processing the auditory, visual, and sensory information it receives, a child’s ability to learn and thrive can be hindered. This can often lead to low self-esteem and social issues, which can impact a child’s personal and academic success.
Sensory Processing Disorder can cause children to be very particular about their likes and dislikes. Children affected by hypersensitivity, may have an extreme or even fearful response to specific sounds, tastes and textures. Children affected by hyposensitivity may show signs by touching people and/or objects in an inappropriate manner, be fidgety, and are often characterized as “thrill seekers”, and can put themselves in dangerous scenarios due to their under-reaction to pain.

At Brain Balance, we believe that the most effective strategy for helping your child overcome Sensory Processing Disorder is by finding the root of the issue.
