Sensory Processing Disorder

Living with SPD is difficult for the affected individual as well as those around them. What exactly is SPD? In simple terms it is when the brain has trouble receiving information from the senses. This site is a wonderful tool to navigate the basics of what Sensory Processing Disorder or Sensory Integration Dysfunction, whichever term you want to use. 

Does your child have difficulty with:

  • change
  • clothing
  • texture
  • smells
  • sounds
  • food aversions
  • calming themselves
  • getting messy
  • crowds/chaos
  • sitting still
  • feeling settled
My 7 year old struggles with many of the above. As we get back into our normal school routine she is using some basic sensory friendly tools to help her focus:

Bouncy Bands

Sensory Seat

Chewy Necklace
