Sensory processing (or integration) is our brain’s ability to organize incoming sensory information. This encompasses data from our five senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch), kinesthetic system (awareness of location, movements, and actions), and vestibular system (supporting balance, posture, and spatial orientation).
Individuals with sensory sensitivities process external stimulation differently than neurotypical individuals. They can both overreact and underreact to sensorial input. Sounds that are normal to most people might be so upsetting that they prompt great emotional upset
