They said he wasn’t sitting in circle time, he wasn’t sharing as much as he should, and he liked to be the center of attention,” she recalls.

There were other issues as well. He didn’t like group activities, although he did like to play one-on-one with other children. The school suggested that Durkin take her son to see an occupational therapist. They said that he might have sensory processing disorder or something like that,” she recalls. OT helps children be more comfortable and successful at play and in school. Durkin and her husband thought he was just being a 3-year-old boy, and that in some ways — such as seeking the company of adults and enjoying the limelight — he was simply taking after his father, a national TV news correspondent.

It’s true that behavioral and developmental disorders are on the rise among America’s children.

Unrealistic Expectations for Boys This phenomenon may be occurring partly because we ask much more of preschool-age children than in previous decades. Not being able to sit in circle time for 20 minutes or resist touching the person sitting 6 inches away from them? That’s totally normal for a 4- or 5-year-old boy.

The prefrontal cortex — the brain’s “CEO,” which helps us to make decisions, organize, analyze, and resist impulsive behavior — matures more slowly in boys than girls. Sensory processing disorder has been compared to a “neurological traffic jam,” in which sensory signals received by the brain — about everything from the taste and texture of a food to the intensity of a touch — become garbled and disorganized. SPD may fall into hysterical fits of terror.

A typical child may wrinkle his nose and say that Grandma’s perfume is stinky, but a child with SPD might refuse to play at someone else’s house because he thinks they all smell yucky. The concept of SPD has been around for a long time — it was first described in the 1960s by occupational therapist A. Jean Ayres, PhD — but the diagnosis gained traction in the late 1990s with the publication of The Out-of-Sync Child, by educator Carol Stock Kranowitz. The Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation claims that as many as 1 in every 20 people — both children and adults — in the United States is affected by the condition.
