What is Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)? Learn with us


What is Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)? Change perceptions, change lives.

What is Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)? Here at Sensory Wise, we invite you to explore a different approach to supporting children who have difficulties at home, school or when they are out in the community.

Sensory Wise works to raise awareness of the importance of our Sensory Processing and how vital it is for learning, behaviour and life in general.

We have a wider social aim to affect a change in attitudes and the way people see and think about visible ‘difference’ and hidden differences like Sensory Processing Difficulties and Autism.

At Sensory Wise, we want you to feel better equipped to support the children and adults you care for.

Children and adults with sensory processing issues often have difficulties with attention & behaviour, social skills, play skills, motor skills & daily routines.

  • Difficulties in one or more of these areas can be experienced by anyone, at any age.
  • Sensory difficulties can exist without any other health diagnosis.
  • They are also commonly found with Autism, ADHD, Dyspraxia and many other neurological conditions.
  • There is no “one size fits all” approach

The only input our brains get is through our sensory systems. With the right sensory balance, either through play fitness or sports, we can help ourselves and those around us with Sensory Processing Difficulties live more fulfilling lives and achieve better social, emotional and academic outcomes.

Sensory strategies are worth exploring. With purposeful and repetitive input, the brain gets help to develop and rebuild neuro-pathways, increasing our ability to cope and react positively to environments and experiences.
