Integration of the information received from all of our senses lays the foundation for learning, understanding of our environment, movement and motor skill development.
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a complex sensory integrative dysfunction, also known as sensory processing disorder.
In children with Sensory Integrative Dysfunction (SID), sometimes called Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), the sensory information received is misinterpreted. Children become hypo sensitive - where they ignore the environmental cues, or hyper sensitive - where they get overwhelmed and become defensive to touch, loud noises, etc.
This can lead to difficulties with learning, social interaction, adaptive behaviors and motor coordination. Sensory processing defecits are significant in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Sensory integrative therapies assess the child's sensory system accurately and determine which system(s) are compromised. Various interventions and specialized equipment is used to balance the sensory system and present the "just right" challenge to improve the function.
