Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is a complex and often misunderstood disorder.  Not all people with SPD have autism but many people with autism have SPD.  Here is an overview of the topics I talked about this week:

  1.  Auditory Dysfunction: http://www.autismmom.net/sensory-processing-disorder-auditory-dysfunction/

  2.  Visual Input Dysfunction: http://www.autismmom.net/sensory-processing-disorder-visual-input-dysfunction/

  3.  Olfactory Dysfunction: http://www.autismmom.net/sensory-processing-disorder-olfactory-dysfunction/

  4.  Oral Input Dysfunction: http://www.autismmom.net/sensory-processing-disorder-oral-input-dysfunction/

  5.  Proprioceptive Dysfunction: http://www.autismmom.net/sensory-processing-disorder-proprioceptive-dysfunction/

  6.  Vestibular Dysfunction: http://www.autismmom.net/sensory-processing-disorder-vestibular-dysfunction/

Further Recommended Reading: www.autismmom.net/booksThese recent posts included quite a few activities and signs of SPD but you might be interested to find some more information and fun activities.  Below, I’ve included a few of my favorite books about SPD.  Many are available on Kindle if you can’t wait to get them shipped (I’m the impatient type… I love my Kindle!).  For safe keeping, I’ll save all of these books on the BOOKS page of my site: http://www.autismmom.net/books/
