proposal of merger
I move that this page be combind with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensory_integration_dysfunction which is an article about the old name for the same disorder.
I propose that Sensory integration dysfunction be merged into Sensory processing disorder. As is, there is contradictory information in the two articles, as well as duplication, that should be resolved. Since there is more content in the SPD article, and the authors seem to indicate that it is the term of choice at present, that should be the destination article. The SID article is of small size so that the merging will not cause problems with the SPD article size. Popsup (talk) 20:15, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
- Support. And it would be great if you would manage the problems with the contradictory information! Lova Falk talk 09:09, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
- Support. It's the same topic despite some minor contraditions. Merge it. 04:58, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
- Support. Researchers and clinicians are moving away from the language of SID, as SPD language was created to be more clear. This is necessary not only for research and clinical work, but more importantly to make the topic more understandable for the layperson.Soontobephd (talk) 16:46, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
- Support. It is important to merge this two categories since they are the same. Sensory Integration was changed to Sensory Processing to avoid confusion with the already existing term of Sensory Integration in the Neurology field which means a completely different thing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chibs007 (talk • contribs) 19:59, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
- Support. I have edited and copied the information from the Sensory Integration Dysfunction article, so I think the pieces are ready to merge. Sensory Integration Dysfunction should be deleted. However, I read the merging help and it is a little out of my league, specially since there is much to save from SID's talk page. Chibs007 (talk
Ok - why are these here? What is their general, secondary source relevance to the article per WP:MEDRS? "Further Reading" is not just a dustbin for primary citations that editors want showcased. Gordonofcartoon (talk) 00:41, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

I disagree , i have a SPD child, parents need firther reading unless you want to print the pages.it difficult, and as a parent I needed to know ehre to go to read, by myself and figure out my next step for my son. The books listed are widely acceptted as the best in this field, please keep this section in! `Dfillinger — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dawnfillinger (talk • contribs)
Reestructuring and separating theories, newest research must be added
Sensory Processing/Sensory Integration is now a topic that has at least 3 main models that describe and explain the observations. In this article, all the terminology from all the different models is mixed and turns out to be very confusing for an untrained person (but I lack the skills in Wikipedia editing and fluent English to do it myself).
- The Sensory Integration classical model according to the theory's creator, Dr. Ayres. Her nosology includes: Registry and Orientation difficulties, Sensory defensiveness, Somatodyspraxia, Gravitational insecurity, etc. (developed by analysis of factor clusters) 
- Sensory Integration Dunn model, which creates a nosology using response type (passive vs active) crossed with threshold to the stimuli (low or high) creating 4 types: low registration, sensory avoiding, sensory seeking and sensory sensitive. 
- The Sensory Processing model, created by Dr Jane Miller, proposes a more neurologically based nosology, with 3 main subtypes, modulation disorders, motor based disorder and discrimination disorders. (reference on the main article)
Recently, more research has been coming out on the neurological causes to SPD that has not been cited, but I do not know how to add and restructure without being tendentious.  As well, more recent research refusing SPD must be quoted and I believe it all should be arrange under a controversy section.Chibs007 (talk) 12:50, 14 July 2013 (UTC)Chibs007
- My copy editing skills are almost non existent, due to my auditory processing disorder, especially my word recall issues. I have found a useful summary of recent progress regarding Sensory Processing Disorder which may suggest a format to improve this article. For instance it may be advisable to introduce some new sections and subsections to help catalog the various subtypes of issue that can be part of SPD. The article includes a useful diagram which may help define the various subtypes. dolfrog (talk) 01:24, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
- The article by Lucy Jane Miller et al oncept Evolution in Sensory Integration: A Proposed Nosology for Diagnosis was the editorial article for the March /April 2007 issue of the American Journal of Occupational Therapy, most artcles relate to Sensory Processing Disorder, the Table of Contents may provide more citations options dolfrog (talk) 22:45, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Upgrade to C class
I have upgraded this article to C class, however some issues still remain:
- Controversy regarding recognition should be mentioned in introduction, this is quite important
- Could use an image
- Requires significant copyediting
- Article contains many unsourced statements
- Article's statements are not written from a third-person passive POV, detracting from their encyclopedic-ness. For example " Each country is encouraged to develop locally relevant programs." should be written "The [x organisation] encourages the development of locally relevant programs"
- Specific examples should be written in a more general form, or used as illustrations in the symptoms section. For example: " A child might regularly jump out of his seat in class despite multiple warnings and threats because his poor proprioception (body awareness) causes him to fall out of his seat, and his anxiety over this potential problem causes him to avoid sitting whenever possible" should written in a more general form: "A child's failure to heed warnings or threats may mask an underlying sensory dysfunction" with the example moved to the symptoms section.
I hope this helps improve this interesting and relevant article.
Editing intro for clarity
It was proposed to use a shorter version of the intro to provide clarity. However, I disagree because it deletes information such as multisensory integration being a neurological process (forcing the person to leave the page to understand the basic intro) and deletes the clarification that the term is mainly used in Occupational Therapy. I have reverted to the old one, but save the suggested one to vote whether to leave the new or the old. ThanksChibs007 (talk) 07:17, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Sensory processing disorder (or SPD) refers to a group of neurological disorders relating to multisensory integration. A failure to organize sensory inputs, such as proprioception, vision, auditory system, tactile, olfactory, vestibular system, interoception, or taste, results in difficulties in function.
Sensory processing disorder however, is characterized by significant problems organizing sensory inputs and is manifested by difficulties in the performance in one of more of the main areas of occupation: productivity, leisure and play or activities of daily living.
Previously known as Sensory Integration, Sensory processing was defined by Dr Anna Jean Ayres in 1972 as "the neurological process that organizes sensation from one's own body and from the environment and makes it possible to use the body effectively within the environment".
SPD and ADHD
Compiling possible citations for this section SPD and ADHD.
Merge Sensory Defensiveness into Sensory Processing disorder
Sensory Defensiveness is a subtype of Sensory Processing Disorder, and currently the Sensory defensiveness article only duplicates the content of the main Sensory processing disorder article. dolfrog (talk) 02:37, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
