Young children with this disorder struggle to regulate their emotions and behaviors as well as their motor abilities in response to sensory stimulation. The sensory stimulation can include touch, sight, sound, taste, smell, sensation of movement in space, and awareness of the position of one’s body in space. A child’s struggle with these sensory inputs leads to impairment in their development and functioning.
These children have trouble maintaining a calm, alert, or affectedly positive state.
