An interesting explanation about Sensory Integration and Tourette’s.
For more information, you can read the reports from these studies:
This first study explored the lived experience of people with Tourette’s who report that sensory sensitivity is more disruptive than their motor tics. The study describes this lived experience and proposes two hypotheses regarding why this might happen.
The second yet unpublished study from Teeside University, is summarised on Tourette’s Action website, and explores sensory processing of adults in the UK.
