Sensory Integration

    All types of sensations, such as visual, auditory, tactile, vestibular, and proprioceptive, are input into our brains at every moment of our daily lives. When the brain is unable to process these sensory inputs, sensory integration disorders follow. Children with sensory integration disorders may be easily distracted by small sounds or a slightly messy environment, be extremely picky about food, or fear cutting their hair or nails, among other behaviors. Future problems with learning or emotional control may arise if the child does not receive the proper early intervention before they enter school.
