The Ot said specifially modulation disorder,whats that mean then?

Also this was the conclusion of the said report.

the conclusion of the Ot report said L** shows clusters of behaviours which are indicative of sensory proccessing disorder and more specifically a modulation disorder.

I presumed that meant he has it? but someone else have said not?

What do you make of this?

I was told (by NHS OT) that they cannot "diagnose" SPD because it is not an officially diagnosable condition in the UK. That might be why the wording is a little odd.

As I understood her explanation, you can have Modulation and Discrimination issues. Modulation is over and under responsiveness. Discrimination is ... thought that might be the tuning out bit, so based on Polter's answer, not sure I have remembered correctly.

She also pointed out the senses fire off you fight or flight reaction, so if it is being activated incorrectly then of course you can get reactions that seem extreme.

That's the theory, still trying to turn that into practical understanding.
