Dr Pratik Mukhrjee and Dr. Elysa Marco on their Breakthrough study of biological basis for sensory processing disorders in kids
In a groundbreaking new study from UC San Francisco, researchers have found that children affected with SPD have quantifiable differences in brain structure, for the first time showing a biological basis for the disease that sets it apart from other neurodevelopmental disorders.
One of the reasons SPD has been overlooked until now is that it often occurs in children who also have ADHD or autism, and the disorders have not been listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual used by psychiatrists and psychologists.
"Until now, SPD hasn't had a known biological underpinning," said senior author Pratik Mukherjee, MD,
Sensory Integration Dysfunction SID, (also called sensory processing disorder) is a neurological disorder that causes difficulties for individuals when processing information from the five senses of sight, hearing, touch, smelling and our taste. For individuals who suffer with SID, they can take things in through their 5 senses normally but they are unable to mentally process what they have seen, heard, felt, smelt or tasted. This leads to stress or distress and confusion. Tune in to this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, as host, Donna Blinston RGN is joined by author, Karen Moxom to discuss her personal experience with sensory processing disorder and how she uses NLP to support herself and her Son.
