How does aberrant sensory reactivity change our behavior?
Our senses are so powerful, and they can change the way we navigate through the world. When senses are hyper or hyposensitive, how does this affect us? Students may select a specific sensory pathway they are interested in and examine how it is disrupted in a number of conditions, such as neurodevelopmental disorders.
