Sensory Over-Responsivity (SOR)

Children with SOR are more sensitive to sensory stimulation than most others children. Their bodies feel sensation too easily or too intensely, and they tend to react negatively or with alarm to sensory input which is generally experienced as harmless or non-irritating.Thus they often are “sensory defensive,” and try to avoid or minimize sensations, such as, withdrawing from being touched or covering their ears to avoid loud sounds.
