Heat Related Issues with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), formerly known as sensory information dysfunction or SI, can cause a range of issues in daily life. Everyone can occasionally have trouble interpreting sensory information, but for children with SPD, it is a chronic and serious issue. Heat sensitivity and processing disorders often go hand in hand.

SPD has a lot to do with how the body responds to external stimulus. That means that a sensory processing disorder and temperature regulation might be in conflict. Add SPD and heat, and a child might overheat more quickly or take too long to start sweating. Physical discomfort translates almost immediately into emotional distress. To avoid dealing with a sensory meltdown, it is best to take proactive steps to help your child with temperature sensitivity. Source: Brain Balance
