In Wired Magazine, a father reflects here on his 6-year old son's struggles with sensory processing disorder and their quest for help.

Excerpt: "As a software engineer, I see the human mind as a beautiful combination of software and hardware. That's why I'm trying to hack my son's brain...When you walk, you can't tell where your legs are, or whether your arms are swinging. Sometimes just keeping your balance is difficult. You exasperate people for doing things you're not even aware of, like bumping into them or not making eye contact."
