One of the myths surrounding a Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is that it’s just a phase and kids will grow out of it. It is possible for a child to find their own positive coping mechanism, allowing the symptoms to subside or become manageable, but the chances of that are slim. If SPD doesn’t just go away with time, I think it’s safe to assume that we have a fair few adults out there suffering with these symptoms.
The word about SPD is just starting to get out there. Children with sensory disorders are beginning to get proper diagnoses and proper intervention, but there are two major reasons it’s important to get the word out about adult with SPD. Reason one is that the adults with SPD need the chance at proper diagnoses and intervention. Reason two is to help dispel the myth that these SPD kids are just going to grow out of it.
