A look back at childhood sensory processing disorder

Another home video! This was the video of my kindergarten play! I think I was about 5 in the video. In the beginning of the video, you will notice that I have some strange arm hand posturing. I am holding my arms and hands curled up against my body in a stiff position. I am not sure exactly why I was doing this. Sensory processing disorder? Anxiety? Trying to hold back tics? Any ideas about that one?

Also throughout the video, I have my hands up at my mouth and am biting my hands and fingers. This is a complex motor tic.

At the end of the video, you also see my sensory processing disorder come into play. I did not like the clapping because of auditory processing sensitivity, which is a part of sensory processing disorder, so you can see that I put my hands up against my ears to cover them.
