To Carly from Pennsylvania

That sounds more like autism than SPD. Autistic people feel other peoples emotions, but usually cannot intellectually understand their problems/pain. Also, people with autism sometimes have hypersensitive senses, in your childs case it sounds like she may be hypersensitive to sound. SPD and the Autism Spectrum are easy to mix up, but those are some of the notable differences.
