Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which amongst the following is used to explore the reason for behavior in SPD? 

    • A.

      Angiography

    • B.

      Magnetic resonance imaging

    • C.

      Autopsy

    • D.

      Electroencephalography 

    Correct Answer
    D. Electroencephalography 
    Explanation
    Electroencephalography (EEG) is used to explore the reason for behavior in SPD. EEG measures the electrical activity of the brain by placing electrodes on the scalp. It helps in detecting abnormal brain waves, which can provide insights into the underlying neurological causes of behavior. Angiography is used to visualize blood vessels, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used for detailed imaging of the brain, and autopsy is a postmortem examination to determine the cause of death. However, none of these methods specifically focus on exploring the reason for behavior in SPD.

    Which of the follwoing is true for children suffering from sensory processing disorder? 

    • A.

      They are very active

    • B.

      They are afraid to play on the swings

    • C.

      They are mostly deaf

    • D.

      They have poor memory

    Correct Answer
    B. They are afraid to play on the swings
    Explanation
    Children suffering from sensory processing disorder often have difficulty processing and integrating sensory information from their environment. This can make certain sensory experiences, such as playing on swings, overwhelming and anxiety-inducing for them. As a result, they may exhibit fear or avoidance behaviors when faced with these sensory stimuli. This fear of playing on swings is a common characteristic observed in children with sensory processing disorder.

    What conditions can commonly occur with people and children suffering from sensory processing disorders? 

    • A.

      Kidney or liver problems

    • B.

      Anxiety, mood or behavioral problems

    • C.

      Heart problems

    • D.

      Lung problems

    Correct Answer
    B. Anxiety, mood or behavioral problems
    Explanation
    People and children suffering from sensory processing disorders commonly experience anxiety, mood, or behavioral problems. Sensory processing disorders can affect the way individuals process and respond to sensory information, such as touch, sound, or movement. This can lead to difficulties in regulating emotions and behavior, resulting in anxiety and mood disturbances. Additionally, the challenges faced in daily life due to sensory processing issues can also contribute to behavioral problems. Therefore, anxiety, mood, or behavioral problems are commonly observed in individuals with sensory processing disorders.

  • 5. 

    Is sensory processing disorder classified in DSM 5?

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Yes

    • C.

      Maybe

    • D.

      I don't know

    Correct Answer
    A. No
    Explanation
    Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is not classified in the DSM-5. The DSM-5 is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which is used by mental health professionals to diagnose and classify mental disorders. While SPD is recognized as a condition that affects how the brain processes sensory information, it is not included as a separate disorder in the DSM-5. Instead, it is often considered a part of other diagnoses, such as autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

  • 6. 

    Who first described sensory processing disorders? 

    • A.

      Anna Jean Ayres

    • B.

      Joseph Lister

    • C.

      Helen B. Taussig

    • D.

      Henry Gray

    Correct Answer
    A. Anna Jean Ayres
    Explanation
    Anna Jean Ayres is credited with first describing sensory processing disorders. She was an occupational therapist and psychologist who developed the theory of sensory integration and its impact on children's development and behavior. Her work has been influential in understanding and treating sensory processing disorders, which affect how the brain processes and responds to sensory information.

      In 1920

    • B.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which brain part is affected in sensory processing disorders? 

    • A.

      Forebrain

    • B.

      Hindbrain

    • C.

       Midbrain and brainstem

    • D.

      I don't know

    Correct Answer
    C.  Midbrain and brainstem
    Explanation
    Sensory processing disorders affect the midbrain and brainstem. These disorders occur when the brain has difficulty receiving and responding to information from the senses. The midbrain and brainstem play a crucial role in processing sensory information and relaying it to other parts of the brain. When these areas are affected, individuals may experience difficulties in processing and responding to sensory stimuli, such as touch, sound, or movement.

  • 9. 

    Which of the following is affected in a person suffering from Sensory processing disorder? 

    • A.

      Coordination 

    • B.

      Attention 

    • C.

      Autonomic function of the body 

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    A person suffering from Sensory processing disorder is affected in all of the above areas. Sensory processing disorder is a condition where the brain has trouble receiving and responding to information that comes in through the senses. This can result in difficulties with coordination, as the person may struggle with motor skills and have trouble with balance and movement. It can also affect attention, as the person may have difficulty focusing and may be easily distracted. Additionally, sensory processing disorder can impact the autonomic function of the body, which includes functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and digestion.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following is used to manage the symptoms of sensory processing disorder? 

    • A.

      Traumatology

    • B.

      Rheumatology

    • C.

      Naturopathy

    • D.

      Occupational Therapy 

    Correct Answer
    D. Occupational Therapy 
    Explanation
    Occupational Therapy is used to manage the symptoms of sensory processing disorder. Occupational therapists work with individuals to help them develop skills and strategies to cope with sensory challenges and improve their ability to participate in daily activities. They may use techniques such as sensory integration therapy, which involves providing specific sensory experiences to help individuals regulate their responses to sensory input. Occupational therapy can also address other aspects of sensory processing disorder, such as motor skills, coordination, and social interaction.
