Sensory Integration Therapy
Children with sensory integration dysfunction supposedly experience problems with their sense of touch, smell, hearing, taste and/or sight. Along with this might possibly be difficulties in movement, coordination and sensing where one's body is in a given space. Sensory integration dysfunction is a common disorder for individuals with neurological conditions such as an autism spectrum disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Learning Disability, and more.
Individuals affected by sensory integration dysfunction may be overly sensitive to certain textures, sounds, smells and tastes, while wearing certain fabrics, tasting certain foods, or normal everyday sounds supposedly cause discomfort. For example, a child with an autism spectrum disorder may feel very little pain or actually enjoy sensations that typical children would not like such as strong smells, intense cold or unpleasant tastes etc.,
