Sensory Processing Disorders

SPD Full Document updated apr16.pdf
Whilst children and young people who do not have other conditions and disabilities can experience Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD) they are more likely to occur in children and young people with learning disabilities, who have Autism, who have ADHD or other conditions like dyslexia or dyspraxia. A child or young person can experience one or more sensory processing disorders and these can be triggered by different stimuli and situa-tions. SPD can be difficult to identify as the symptoms can sometimes be masked by the symptoms of other ex-isting conditions. Some Sensory Processing Disorders are more difficult to identify than others and occasionally a child or young person who displays symptoms of a SPD will actually have another underlying condition that needs to be explored such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or Prader Willi’s. Unfortunately whilst Sensory Processing Dis-orders can be quite common the information, support and advice available on each of these can vary greatly. This factsheet offers a directory of resources for each sensory processing disorder—as well as some more general organisations and resources.
