Every website,every discussion,every interview about Sensory Processing Disorder is an opportunity to answer the question for someone,somewhere,who has been wondering all their life,“What’s wrong with me?”

Autism?

Years ago,the first time I heard about my bizarre sensory symptoms was in something I read about autism. I immediately wondered if I was autistic.

But autism includes:

  • Difficulty communicating
  • A lack of ability to read social cues
  • Poor eye contact

 I communicate just fine when I’m not in a situation that taxes my senses.

I am very sensitive (possibly too sensitive) to social cues.I do feel eye contact to be very intense and I have difficulty maintaining it when I am over-stimulated. But if I am in a situation where communication is required,I naturally seek and maintain eye-contact. That was not something I had to learn;it was an innate skill.
