Sensory processing refers to the way our nervous system receives messages from our senses and turns those messages into behaviors or motor movements. SPD exists when sensory signals are not organized into proper responses. A person with SPD may find it difficult to process and act upon information received through the senses which definitely creates daily challenges in these individual's lives (SPD Foundation).
Want to learn more about this? Of course you do since it is in our scope of practice to collaborate with OTs (who formally diagnosed sensory processing disorders) in understanding the individual's sensory needs!
