About Sensory Processing Disorder
Sensations provide energy and knowledge needed to direct the body and mind. In children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), sensory signals get disorganized and result in inappropriate responses or behaviors.
Symptoms of SPD include children who are over- or under-sensitive, prone to meltdowns, have poor listening or attention issues, struggle with anxiety, ADD, impulsiveness, defiant behavior, lack of coordination, learning disabilities, and more.
