(2011) The Out-of-Sync Child: How SPD Affects Kids with ASD, with Nancy Bernotaitis

January 18
Discussion at the 3rd annual Autism Tele-Conference sponsored by Moms Fighting Autism

Most children with autism are “out-of-sync,” withdrawing from physical contact, refusing to participate in everyday activities, or responding in unusual ways to sensations of touch, movement, sight and sound.   These children don’t behave as we expect — not because they WON’T, but because they CAN’T.   The underlying reason is Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).  Parents, teachers, and other caregivers can provide fun sensory-motor experiences to address autistic children’s sensory needs and help them participate and communicate with their peers – in general education or special education classrooms, on the playground, and at home.
