In the DCD continuum vein, Anything, Sweetie remarks:
i have recently come to think of the spectrum as a colour wheel, and a term like DCD to be about as helpful as the word "blue-ish".Point well taken, but I like the word "blue-ish." So many children with autism and sensory processing disorder are hypersensitive, or a combination of hyper- and hypo-sensitive. On the metaphorical color wheel, maybe they're red for hypersenstive, or purple for hyper- and hypo-sensitive. I think Brad is exclusively hyposentive. Like the color blue, he's cool with his sensory intake and expression. I finally feel like we have a label that fits nicely. I have a good framework to understand him, and perhaps some direction to treat him. Sure there are lots of shades of blue, but we can at least say that blue isn't the same as yellow, can we not?
