Workshop Offers Help for Children Afflicted With Sensory Processing Disorder

October 14, 2014


A workshop, sponsored by the Parent Network of WNY, will be held on Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) in North Tonawanda, at the Wheatfield Community Center, 2790 Church Road, on November 3, at 6:00 p.m.

SPD is a condition that exists when a person's brain doesn't process what he or she sees, hears or touches properly.

A person with SPD finds it difficult to perform everyday tasks. Clumsiness, behavioral problems, anxiety, depression, and school failure may result.

In children, posture and motor skills are affected. Once children with SPD have been diagnosed, however, they can benefit from occupational therapy in a sensory-rich environment.

Participants in the workshop will gain an understanding of how the senses work and ways to improve their functions.
