Sensory Integration Therapy

What is sensory integration?

Sensory integration refers to how sensory impressions interact with one another (via sight, hearing, smell, taste, feel and balance) and how they are perceived and interpreted in the central nervous system. In the case of sensory integration disorders, sensory impressions within a child's brain are processed incorrectly. It is often the case that infants or babies born prematurely suffer from genetic syndromes such as targeted perception disabilities. These can then lead to learning disabilities, behaviour disorders or difficulty with motor skills development.
