Sensory integration

Sensory integration


Sensory integration is a process during which the nervous system receives information from receptors of all senses: touch, vestibular system, feeling of one’s body, called proprioception, smell, sight, hearing and taste, and then analyses it and integrates in such a way that it can be used in intentional actions.

The therapy consists in applying controlled and appropriately selected sensory stimulation in order for the brain to learn to interpret information received and to control reactions to this information.

Sensory integration therapy is aimed at children with specific learning difficulties – resulting from dyslexia and dysgraphia, for hyperactive children, with poor concentration, for children with cerebral palsy, with autism spectrum disorders and with disturbances of psychomotor development.
