Sensory Challenges and Anxiety in Children with and without Autism Sensory experiences have a significant impact on behavior throughout the lifespan, but particularly early in life. Some individuals have heightened and unusual reactions to sensory stimuli, such as particular sounds or textures. Dr. Carpenter will present research, which builds on a growing body of literature, linking early sensory hypersensitivity to anxiety and a number of additional behavioral challenges, namely sleep issues and irritability in both typical development, as well as in young children with autism.
