Sensory Overload And Mood

by Rachel

Can an exposure to sensory overload, lead to a drop in mood for an SPD teenager?

My daughter wanted to attend a school production last night, to see her friends perform. This is rare for her as noise is usually a big issue and she avoids cinemas, theatres etc. This production was very loud, throughout.

She enjoyed it, however today she has inexplicably woken up in a foul mood (more than her usual teenage stroppiness) and I’m wondering if the two things might be linked.
