Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a condition affecting at least one in twenty children who experience sensations in taste, touch, sound, sight, smell, movement, and body awareness in a vastly different manner from how other children their ages do.
What may be typical activities for most kids are a daily struggle that may result in social, emotional, or academic problems.
