Sensory processing disorders distort a child's ability to experience life comfortably. Occupational therapists do a great job to balance the sensory pathways to allow children with SPD to flourish. Unfortunately, what they have not realized is that the majority of these children have subtle metabolic disorders limiting their tone and energy. These same disorders can also disable the gabaergic neurons needed to control neural excitation and slow down excessive sensory input. This presentation presents the hypothesis that a large percentage of sensory processing disorders are due to metabolic disorders starting in infancy, causing the infant to lack the gross motor strength and tone needed to execute the fundamental tasks needed for neural integration: rolling, crawling, creeping, walking, jumping, etc.
