A neurological condition, sensory processing disorder, may make the acquisition of knowledge and skills received through the sense more difficult. Receiving messages from the senses and turning them into developmentally appropriate motor and behavioral responses are characteristics of sensory processing disorder (additudemag.org). Sensory processing disorder is not listed as a condition in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) and is not considered under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) a specific learning disability.
Here are ways to support students who experience sensory processing disorder:
