Sensory processing refers to the ability of a child to register, interpret and respond to sensory information. This is a complex process involving all the sensory systems, auditory, gustatory, visual, olfactory, tactile, proprioception, vestibular, and interoception.
When sensory processing is working well, a child can fully engage in daily functional activities and social interaction. Sensory processing differences are prevalent in autistic children and can affect every aspect of development and daily life.
