A Detailed Study on Sensory Processing Issues in Children

intensive therapy

Many parents have already noticed that their children display different behaviors which are not like their peers. They see their kids get easily upset over minor issues. And, sometimes, parents don’t understand why their kids are reacting too much. Well, what they don’t know is that it can happen because of sensory processing disorder.

Sensory processing issues can hugely affect how children perceive and interact with the world. And, resultantly, it can also impact various aspects of their lives. Kids can face problems with emotional regulation, body awareness and coordination,  attention or activity levels and more!

So, as a parent, it’s important you understand sensory processing issues so that you can help your kid overcome those. Sometimes, kids need support from certified therapists who devise unique therapy plans to address specific issues.  

Today, we will help parents understand the signs of sensory processing issues –

Of course, there are some signs that indicate your child may have sensory processing disorders. You need to closely observe those.

  • If you see, your little kid shows irritation or distress over specific clothing textures, sound volume or pitch, or light/visual patterns, then your kid may have sensory issues.
  • Another sign is when you see your kid does not respond when called by name. If you also notice that your kid has a high pain tolerance, then this can also be a warning sign.
  • Higher activity level, seeking pressure through tight hugs or deliberately bumping into people and objects – all these indicate the kid has sensory issues.
  • On the other hand, lower activity levels or avoiding any kinds of movement-based activities, also indicate the child has some sensory issues.
  • When you see your kid has problems with interacting with people or objects, or has issues with touching, licking, or biting, they might need help from experts.
  • Another thing to look for is whether your kid has specific eating habits or picky eating habits. If they avoid specific textures, colors or shapes of the food, they may have sensory processing disorder.

Problems associated with Sensory Processing Disorder

  • Children with sensory processing issues develop poor motor skills and body awareness. They often struggle to hold pencils, or they hesitate to participate in craft activities. They lack occupational skills like buttoning clothing or tying shoelaces. 
  • Kids with sensory issues often have clumsiness or awkwardness in movement. They experience frequent tripping or even difficulty with catching and running.
  • Kids with sensory issues also have less awareness regarding their bodily needs. They can not figure out when to use the toilet or discern hunger and fullness. They often feel anxiety related to everyday sensations.
  • Children with sensory issues also have low or high muscle tone and this can seriously impact coordination and control.
  • Another problem children face is frequent drooling or gagging. They have poor focus also. Plus, they show impulsiveness or frequent frustration.
  • They may also have speech difficulties. They suffer because of low self-confidence or dependence on others.

How can you help your child with sensory processing issues?

If you believe your child has sensory processing issues, then you should seek guidance from therapists specializing in intensive therapy.
