My son is four years old and may have Sensory Processing Disorder (not yet formally diagnosed as apparently he is too young) . His kinder teachers have picked up on particular behaviors that are in line with the symptoms of this disorder and I am now seeing more and more that fits the description and the more I read and see the more his behaviours make sense. He is not disruptive but seems to remove himself from situations that are noisy or too busy and if he is focused on one thing cannot switch to something else. He seems to become overwhelmed in team type sports and activities and wants to disengage and only really like to participate in activities if he has one on one support. Can anyone recommend some activities which may help develop his focus? I am also keen to keep him active.
