At New Haven, understanding how each student responds to her senses is essential to her overall treatment. Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) occurs when the brain has difficulty interpreting the information it receives through the senses. This looks different in everyone and no two individuals interpret sensory input in exactly the same way. People can be over responsive, under responsive, or sensory seekers. Each individual’s brain will respond differently to certain senses.
Please follow this link to our most recent blog posting about SPD and how New Haven utilizes this data in our clincal approach.
The blog post discusses the three types of processing disorders, as well as additional resources and how SPD relates to Residential Treatment. Then take the assessment we use with our students to understand how you respond to sensory stimulation.
