SENSORY INTEGRATION:

WHAT IS SENSORY INTEGRATION?

Sensory Integration is the ability to feel, understand and organize sensory information from our body and our environment. Such information is received through the sensory systems, which include vision, touch, smell, taste and hearing, as well a systems for knowing about gravity, position of body parts and movement.

For most children, sensory integration develops in the course of ordinary childhood activities. Motor planning ability is a natural outcome of the process as is the ability to adapt to incoming sensations. for some children, however, sensory integration does not develop efficiently.


SENSORY INTEGRATION DYSFUNCTION

When a "glitch" occurs in the central nervous system, the brain cannot analyze, organize and connect -- or "integrate" --sensory messages. The result is sensory integration dysfunction, usually referred to as Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Somewhere in the circuitry of the sensory processing machine, there is a "short". What may occur is:

  • Inefficient sensory intake
  • Neurological disorganization
  • Inefficient motor, language or emotional output

Therefore, the child will not respond in an ordinary way to ordinary sensations.

SENSORY INTEGRATION THERAPY (S.I.)

A therapist with post-graduate training in S.I. evaluates, analyzes and implements a variety of therapeutics interventions based upon each individual's unique presentation of SPD. Often, the treatment incorporates "heavy work muscle" (proprioceptive) input along with strong movement (vestibular) activities.
