Our senses! Thanks to them, our brains are constantly flooded with information about the world around us. What may surprise you is that we’re not all wired the same way, and some of us areunable to understand exactly what we’re sensing.

Whether you’re someone with sensory issues, a loved onesupporting a sensory person, a professional, or someone that is curious about unusual and complex sensory experiences, this guide will answer your questions about life with sensory processingdifferences.
