A Processing Disorder (PD) is a condition in which the brain is inefficient at using and moving incoming information properly. Individuals affected with PD have a decreased ability to functions at optimal performance in life, resulting in lost productivity at work, school, home, and in their daily lives in general. Since 1 in 25 people are affected by PD, it is highly likely that you or someone you know is struggling unknowingly or silently with this disorder.  Left untreated, PD that persists into adulthood can affect an individual's ability to succeed in marriage, work, parenting, and social activities.

Common signs of PD include difficulty following directions; learning and attention problems, overwhelm, frustration, anxiety, OCD, ADD/HD, poor self-esteem, social challenges, difficulty with communication, poor balance, clumsy, and uncoordinated; sensitivity to noises or sounds that seem unoffensive to others; and more.
