1 ADHD and Sensory Processing: Theory, Research, and Clinical Implications" C. Joe Egli, M.A., Ph.D., L.P.! Minnesota Association for Children s Mental Health Sunday, April 27 th, 2014

2 ADHD & Sensory Processing An Introduction" l Recognition of a need for multidisciplinary treatment approaches! l Disconnect between disciplines! l ADHD and comorbidity! l ADHD and sensory processing difficulties!

3 DSM-5 ADHD Criteria

4 Sensory Processing (Sensory Integration) Disorder/Difficulties l Ability to register, screen, organize and interpret information from our senses and environment to enable adaptive responses to changing circumstances and contexts. l Part of our foundation for sense of security, competence, social-emotional, cognitive, motor, communication and other life functions.

5 Sensory Systems Considered" l Vision! l Hearing! l Touch light touch, pressure, pain, temperature! l Taste! l Smell! l Vestibular! l Proprioception! l Interoceptive!

6

7 Over-Responsivity" Under-Responsivity" Sensory Craving Sensory Based Motor Disorder

8 Risk Factors for SPD" Genetics! Preterm birth! Prenatal risk factors! Birth trauma, complication during labor or delivery, jaundice, infant health issues, hospitalizations and medical procedures! Exposure to toxins! Adoption orphanage, sensory deprivation! Exposure to trauma, neglect/abuse!

9 Prevalence of SPD and Co-Occurring Disorders T.M.Benson, SPD Summary" Estimated 5-13% children have SPD, 73% male! Estimated Frequency Common Co-morbidities:! 40-60% ADHD & SPD! 70-90% Autism Spectrum Disorder & SPD!

10

11 Review: ADHD-Sensory Research" l Methodological issues!! Who is conducting the research?! How are ADHD and sensory processing measured?! How aware/sensitive are parents to challenges with sensory processing?!

12

13 Differences between ADHD and SPD: Research" l ADHD = more impulsive (Ognibene, 2002; Miller, 2006)! l SPD = more difficulties habituating to sensory stimuli (Ognibene, 2002)! l ADHD = anxiety specific to social concern (Lane, Reynolds, and Thacker, 2010)!

14 Combined ADHD + SPD: Research (when both are present)" l Greater anxiety (Reynolds and Lane, 2009; Lane, Reynolds, and Thacker, 2010)! l Problems with aggression, delinquency, academic achievement, and cognitive processing (Ghanizadeh, 2011)! l Greater sensory-related behaviors than ADHD alone and greater attention difficulties than SPD alone. (Miller, Nielsen, and Schoen, 2012)!

15 ADHD/Executive Functions Theory" l Barkley s model of ADHD and executive functions (Barkley, 1997)! Executive functions are higher order cognitive skills! Inhibition most important! l ADHD reflects deficits in executive functioning! l Evaluate with checklists, normed questionnaires, and cognitive skill measurement!

16 ADHD Testing and Research" l Less inhibitory motor control in children and adults with ADHD (Lijffijt, 2005)! l In adults, inhibition may be the strongest predictor of ADHD compared to measurement of other executive functions (Boonstra, et al., 2010)! l Working memory deficits persist into adulthood, increasing the difficulty of working memory measures will improve identification (Alderson, et al., 2013)!

17 Differentiating ADHD vs. Sensory" Helpful Hints ADHD! SPD! Consistently disruptive behavior! Yes! No! Anxiety and irritability! No! Yes! Measured executive deficits! Yes! No! ADHD medication is effective! Yes! No! Negative effects of ADHD meds! No! Yes! More organized/regulated after OT! No! Yes! Still impulsive with OT! Yes! No! Seeks new, nonspecific stimulation! Yes! No!

18 Best Clinical Practices" Client with ADHD symptoms! Refer for psychological testing of executive functions! Include sensory and motor questions in intake! If sensory/motor differences suspected, refer for occupational therapy evaluation! Mental health and O.T.s coordinate interventions! If no psych testing consider outcome of occupational therapy/evaluation!
