Im actually 20, but 21 in 5 days time….
A bit of background on me: I have Sensory Processing Disorder, a nice bit of OCD, apparently severe Dyslexia and I generally feel my brain has been wired differently to the rest of the human kind. Bit of a statement rather than an intro but bear with me. I wanted to start a blog for these reasons:
- All sensory processing disorder blogs are U.S based
- All sensory processing blogs are based either around toddlers or young children
What happened to all those sensory kids who grew up but didnt grow out of their sensory problems? Thats why Im starting this blog. Im UK based and I want to make a difference. I want to encourage discussion – how do you cope with your sensory problems? Are you struggling through secondary school, uni, work, whatever? I want to actively encourage people to share their coping mechanisms with one another. I know one other person with sensory problems. Thats one other person in the entire world. Theres got to be more people out there?
You don’t have to have Sensory Processing Disorder (formly know as Sensory Integration Dysfunction) to comment and discuss on this blog. Even if you have sensory problems as a result of something else or have Autism, Aspergers, etc the more the merrier!
