Sensory processing disorders (SPDs) are problems with misinterpreting everyday sensory information such as touch, sound, taste, movement and smells. At the hypersensitivity end, this can lead to the person becoming easily overwhelmed by seemingly normal sensations of touch, sound or other senses. Behaviours like rage, tantrums, anxiety or avoidance may result. At the other extreme, hyposensitive or under-sensitive individuals may inappropriately seek out excess sensory stimuli such as movement, touch and sound.
