What is Sensory Integration?
Everyday we receive a great deal of information from our senses. We use this information to organize our behavior and successfully interact in the world. What happens if one or more of our senses are not being interpreted properly? A child with vague or hazy feedback about his sense of touch, body position, or movement and gravity is in a world totally foreign to ours. You would not feel the usual security, safety, and fun that other children experience. When the process of sensory integration is disordered, a number of problems in learning, motor development, or behavior may be observed.
