Lesson 8 - Question

Post by ase » Thu Jul 04, 2019 3:27 pm

In the passage on SPD, question 9 states, "which is NOT a sensory process that an SPD patient may have difficulty with?"

The answer is C. Understanding social cues; however, in the passage, paragraph 3, it clearly states that someone with SPD has long-term social issues....Temperature changes, choice B, however is not mentioned in passage.

While not technically propioception or any other categories mentioned, the list specifies sensory information including, but not limited to, a few particular modalities. You are totally allowed to assume that any sensory modality would be affected by sensory processing disorder.

Understanding social cues however is not even a direct sensory process, it is a cognitive process.


Sorry this took so long to get to, let me know if this clears it up!

Thank you but my question is in the fact that the passage mentions social issues specifically, which are also cognitive...

which are also cognitive..
The question states: "which is NOT a sensory process that an SPD patient may have difficulty with"


Even without splitting any hairs or making fine distinctions, social cues are cognitively interpreted, not primarily sensory. Therefore they cannot be a sensory process that an SPD patient is having difficulty with.

I hope that helps a bit, I agree that the detail to look for being in the question itself is a very frustrating situation!
