SPD and SID myths
Sensory Processing Disorder/ Sensory Integration disorder myths and truths. Keep in mind. These are SPD and SID specific except for the second. So, we can obviously have other diagnosis’s too.
We very likely have food sensitivities (Which are medically routed). But, we defiantly DON’T have Eating Disorders.
We don’t have empathy. (This is actually an ASD myth) That doesn’t mean we know how or when to express the empathy appropriately, that we feel it like an NT, or that we seam to have it when we should.
We may be depressed, but, it’s core routes on why, and representation differ frequently.
Our structure, need to be right, and critical nature, aren’t mood related or negative based. At ALL.
We have allergies. Well, we could have them too. Our avoidance or negative reactions to things AREN’T allergies at all.
