Sensory Processing Disorder Awareness
Since October is National Sensory Awareness month I chose to write my research paper on a topic dear to my heart. Sensory processing (sometimes called "sensory integration" or SI) is a term that refers to the way the nervous system receives messages from the...

Bionic Eyes Allow Blind People to See
My Dad told me that blind people could see due to robotic eye implants, I decided to look it up to see how it works and I found that a training system called BrainPort is letting people with visual and balance disorders bypass their damaged sensory organs...

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are based on three characteristics - impaired social interactions, repetitive and restricted behaviors and deficits in communication (Delorey et al., 2011). Individuals with ASD also possess abnormal sensory processes that contribute to the three...

“normal.” (Kira, 5)
Because autism is considered a developmental disorder, it is often assumed that everyone who is autistic is also mentally retarded. Many autistic cases show profound sensory overload (Kira, 3). This means that the individual’s senses can be up to one hundred times more sensitive...

Cognitive theories that focus on information processing have been the most influential theories of trauma in terms of generating testable hypotheses and directing current treatments (Salmon & Bryant, 2002). For this reason, we...
