Presenter: Jordan Smelley, MHPS


  • Define what Neurodivergent means by giving some examples of diagnoses that fall under the category of Neurodivergent.
  • Better understand Proprioceptive Dysfunction and Tactile Dysfunction and the associated seeking behaviors and avoidant behaviors for both types of Sensory Processing Disorders
  • Why it’s so important for Mental Health and Substance Use Providers and treatment centers to identify and support or refer patients to vital supports to address Sensory Processing Disorders like Proprioceptive Dysfunction and Tactile Dysfunction
  • Why it’s so important for members of the recovery community at large to decrease their level of bulling, taking advantage of, and/or mislabeling the intention behind some behaviors their Neurodivergent peers use and increase their level of understanding and support
