Who We Are
Ever since my little brother was diagnosed with autism, I have been very aware of, and interested in, how different people are affected by their senses. Our parent company, Future Horizons, continues to bring the best the world has to offer in autism resources. Now, with Sensory World, we can focus on sensory issues, which affect most people with autism, and many with ADD/ADHD, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, OCD, and even us “neurotypicals.”

Common Signs of Sensory Processing Disorder
Many behavior problems are sensory based! Some common signs of sensory processing disorder include:
- Sensitive to Touch – They don't like to be touched or can't be touched enough.
- Sensitivity to Sounds – They may cover their ears when the same noises don't bother others.
- Picky Eaters – They will only eat familiar foods.

When trying to figure out a sensory issue, you might reconsider which senses are involved, even if it doesn’t seem to make sense at first. When you think about the sensory issues in your family, what’s at the top of the list? For many of us, it’s food.

One of the most gratifying aspects of my profession as a pediatric occupational therapist is the opportunity to partner with parents and caregivers to develop environmental supports, routines, structure, and daily activities to address the unique challenges and abilities of their children who have sensory-based concerns.
