Apparently I was not the only one to think this and there had actually been an experiment to test why. according to a study chewing gum actually increases the flow of oxygen to different regions of the brain which are responsible for concentration and short term memory.The extra flow of oxygen to these crucial regions of the brain can help boost alertness and short term memory, causing concentration levels to rise and the brain to absorb more information then it could previously. In nearly all sources and experiments thus far yielded positive results, that chewing gum really did help concentration. Why would this be of any importance? Think about all the children and even adults who suffer from ADHD or even who just have short attention span.
I have found that the research and discussions surrounding sensory processing disorder is very heated and is on the rise. Some groups are in total agreement with sensory processing being a disorder and needing services and treatment where others disagree completely with the whole idea and believe that it is just the next “it” diagnosis. It was extremely difficult to find research and discussion dealing with sensory processing disorder own its own. Most of the research and discussion I found sensory processing disorder was studied along with other disabilities like Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I am hoping to come out with a better understanding how sensory processing affects students’ ability to learn, how can we help them learn, and are treatments beneficial.
