5 Sentidos is created by Mrs. Sandra Carrión, mother of two girls with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Carrión knows firsthand what it is to live with a child who experiences too much or insufficient stimulation through their senses, the consequences that this type of diagnosis generates, how difficult it is to deal with a minor with SPD in different settings such as the home, the school, the community and society itself and the economic investment, which in the vast majority of cases, must be made to ensure that a child with this condition can lead a life as normal as possible and reach their full development. Given this situation, in response to his concern and concern about the multiple challenges faced by relatives of minors who suffer from this condition, he decided to give life to 5 Sentidos, which has become one of his life projects.
The mission of the 5 Sentidos is to raise awareness about Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) in children and adolescents in Puerto Rico. Also, provide financial aid; offer medical, therapeutic and academic services and develop sports-cultural activities in order to contribute to comprehensive development and offer better life opportunities to children and youth with SPD.
