The number is even greater in children with autism, ADHD, and learning disabilities. Learn about the brain process, sensory integration, how it affects young children’s learning, and their behaviors. Red flags for the identification of children who have sensory processing disorder and are “sensory seekers” or “sensory avoiders” will be discussed.
