L.J. Miller, R.C. Schaaf

Summary: “…┬áSensory processing disorder (SPD) is a complex developmental disorder affecting children and adults. People with SPD over-respond, under-respond, excessively crave/seek out intense sensory experiences, have difficulty discriminating sensation, or respond to sensory input in an atypical manner, impacting their daily life activities…

This article updates the theory and presents a new taxonomy to classify SPD into three classic patterns: sensory modulation disorder, sensory discrimination disorder, and sensory-based motor disorder.”
