Sensory Integration

Sensory integration challenges stem from your nervous system and make it difficult to receive, organize, and use sensory information. This makes it hard for a person’s body to adapt to a given physical environment and can lead to a variety of problems. Through fun and engaging activities, we help children learn to process and organize different sensations which are necessary for development. 

The three most common sensory systems affected with sensory processing disorder are:

  • Vestibular: The sensory system that responds to changes in head and body movement through space, and that coordinates movements of the eyes, head, and body.

  • Proprioceptive: This sense underlies one’s ability to place body parts in a position in space and to grade movements (i.e. the ability to judge direction of force and pressure.

  • Tactile: Information taken into the body through the sense of touch (skin).
