Sensory Stimulation Therapy - (SST) is an experimental therapy that aims to utilize neural plasticity mechanisms to aid in the recovery of somatosensory function after stroke or cognitive aging. Sensory stimulation is also used in adolescents with sensory processing issues such as unusual aversion to noise, light, shoes that are deemed too tight and clothes that are irritating. They may also notice clumsiness, inability to sit still, trouble climbing stairs and difficulty with fine motor skills like wielding a pencil and fastening buttons. More baffling — and alarming — to parents are children who exhibit extreme behaviors such as screaming if their faces get wet.Throwing tantrums when you try to get them dressed. Having an unusually high or low pain threshold. Crashing into walls and even people. Putting inedible things, including rocks and paint, into their mouths. These and other atypical behaviors may reflect sensory processing issues — difficulty integrating information from the senses, which may overwhelm children and result in confusing behavior.
