What is SENSORY INTEGRATION?
Sensory integration therapy attempts to normalize sensory processing problems and guide a child towards a state of improved organization, normalized arousal, improved motor response/motor planning, and improved interactions with the environment and others. Treatment strategies include: sensory diets, therapeutic activities and guided activities.
