Aspie Blog – Sensory Overload Through My Eyes

This post is not particularly related to mobile apps (although I will connect it in a little bit…), but this is such an interesting post from The Sensory Spectrum, I thought as OT’s, parents or others that work with individuals with sensory processing this needed to be shared.

The Sensory Spectrum provides several interesting perspectives via video what it might be like to have a sensory processing disorder. How many hundreds of time have I wished to be inside for just a few minutes to perceive and understand what they see, hear and feel. These resources help with getting inside, even though each individual may have a different perception, it is a start.

And now I wonder why some of my students wear ear muffs frequently, why they like sameness, predictability, patterns and calming apps that they can control the visual or audio effects of ? Wouldn’t you if life was so unpredictable?

If you work with clients with sensory processing challenges check out their blog and the resources provided from The Sensory Spectrum, it is well worth it!

Thank you to The Sensory Spectrum blog for their incredible work at providing insights and resources on SPD for all!

A teenager on the Autism spectrum shared what it’s like to experience sensory overload. Bravo for him in educating others!
