When an individual has difficulty understanding and using the information that comes into the brain via the senses, it can interfere with his or her ability to function in a variety of ways. A few examples are: difficulty with self-regulation in noisy environments; inability to tolerate the feeling of clothing; aversion to most solid food textures; a strong tendency to “crash” into objects; decreased awareness of pain or temperature. Sensory processing disorder can affect any of the senses, including movement processing and body awareness.
