My cousin's daughter was misdiagnosed with a sensory processing disorder. My poor cousin went through months of stress and literally worried herself sick about her daughter. She was showing some odd symptoms such as kicking the mirror during dance class, screaming when she was in a large crowd and some other symptoms. A lady who was the parent of one of the kids in her dance class who is some sort of child developmental specialist, noticed her behavior and told my cousin that's what was wrong with her and recommended all sorts of therapy for her. My cousin ordered these special CD's for her and did some other things, and after taking her back and forth to her pediatrician and a couple of other specialists, it turned out, there was nothing wrong with her other than behavior and discipline issues.
Not to say these disorders don't exist,they do. There are alot of websites about sensory issues and therapy for them.
