Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)/ Sensory Integration(SI)

Children’s therapy social therapy sesion

Also known as Sensory Integration, or “SI”, Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) affects the central nervous system and one’s ability to process sensory information and translate it into an action or understanding of what’s trying to be processed. Essentially, it’s like reading a book without being able to understand what one is reading. Therefore, this disorder affects the victim’s daily life in almost every way – depending on the severity of the disorder. Children can have trouble learning in school or participating in social activities if Sensory Processing Disorder isn’t treated properly.

Two studies were conducted to figure out how many people face Sensory Processing Disorder throughout their lives. One found that 1 in every 20 children are affected by Sensory Processing Disorder and suffer from its detrimental effects. Another found that 1 out of every 6 children face other symptoms of sensory miscommunication daily. These high numbers are serious enough for there to be a great community of those who work to enhance a child’s ability to process sensory information and cope with existing issues.

Most people diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) are children from as young as toddlers to adolescents. Their learning ability and development is severely affected by Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) . Many children went undiagnosed with this disease in the past before a lot of research was done, so many adults suffer from this disorder without knowing what is really the problem. This affects their ability to work, socialize with people, and many other facets of their lives.
