Quarterly Speaker Series
Sensory Processing Disorders
Tiffany Meier, OTR
Tiffany is a licensed Occupational Therapist and certified in
sensory integration and praxis.
Sensory processing disorder occurs when signals from our senses are either not detected or not organized into appropriate responses by our nervous system.
As a result, children with SPD may frequently have motor and behavioral responses that may be inappropriate for the situation they’re in. Despite not being listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), sensory processing disorder is said to be more common in children than either autism or ADHD. The disorder affects roughly 5% to 16% of school-aged children.
This presentation will discuss the identification and treatment of children with SPD.
