Learn about Sensory Processing Differences with us
What is SPD?
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is sometimes known as Sensory Processing Difficulties / Differences or Sensory Integration Dysfunction.
SPD is when the brain finds it difficult to do its most important job, which is to organise and respond to the information it is receiving. A person with SPD finds it difficult to process and act upon information received through the senses, which means some daily living activities like washing are difficult.
The characteristics of SPD are often misunderstood to be negative behaviours. These might include breaking things, biting, pushing people, fidgeting with objects, humming or rocking.
We have lots more resources including videos, downloads, webinars, support materials and podcasts, plus lots more.
