Sensory processing disorder (SPD)

A condition in which children misinterpret everyday sensory information, such as touch, sound and movement. Some feel bombarded and overwhelmed by sensory information; others don't tune into the sensory information (sounds, sights, etc,) around them. Some seek out intense sensory experiences, some avoid them and others ignore sensory input.
