Sensory issues

Many individuals on the neurodiversity spectrum have sensory differences – either in perception or processing, or a combination of both, e.g. hypo- or hypersensitivity, auditory processing differences, scotopic sensitivity, synesthesia, prosopagnosia (face-blindness). See sub-pages to read more about each.

These differences can probably explain quite a large number of seemingly odd reactions and preferences common to people with ASD, ADHD etc.
