Individuals on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may experience Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) related to their vision, hearing, taste, touch and smell. An individual can either be Hyper (over) - sensitive or hypo (under) - sensitive to their sensory input which can interfere with typical life activities. One example of being hypersensitive is a certain sound such as a clock ticking or humming noise coming from a light or refrigerator may cause an individual with SPD to cover their ears or to try to escape from that room or location. An example of being hyposensitive may include not reacting to a loud sudden noise. Similar to ASD itself, SPD can affect each individual differently and can differ from day to day and situation to situation.
Making Connections ASD Networking Group (MC) partners with other organizations to provide sensory friendly activities for individuals affected by autism and their families.
