Sensory Processing Disorder or SPD is a neurological disorder causing difficulties with processing information from the eight senses.
We all know these 5:
1) Eyes (visual)
2) Ears (auditory)
3) Nose (smell)
4) Mouth (oral/ taste)
5) Hands (touch/tactile)
Then there are the:
6) vestibular- the body’s sense of balance
7) proprioceptive- the body’s sense of where it is in space
8 ) interoceptive sense- the body’s sense of what is going on internally.
For those with SPD, sensory information is sensed, but perceived abnormally.
