About Sensory Processing Disorder

Sensory Processing Disorder affects more than 1 in 10 children.

  • That’s one child in every classroom
  • That’s between 4 and 12 million children less than 18 years old
  • That’s 1 to 3 million children less than 5 years of age

SPD is a neurological disorder that disrupts the way an individual processes and responds to sensations. Individuals with SPD may over- or under-respond to one or more sensations (e.g., a loud sound, or light touch), crave sensations or may have problems with motor skills and coordination. One child in every classroom has SPD.  That’s over 4 million kids in the United States.

Dr. Lucy Jane Miller, founder of STAR Institute, is widely recognized as the leader in SPD research worldwide, seeking science-grounded answers that will change the lives of children and adults living with this disabling neurodevelopmental condition.
