Hi--can you tell me more about this please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My sister says my niece has touch sensitivity disorder and that is why at 13 she can't tie her own shoe laces or tell the time. This isn't my understanding of touch sensitivity
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

Can you tell me more about your niece?
