Sensory Integration (SI) is our brain's ability to take in, organize, and interpret information using all of our senses. This process involves our senses of taste, smell, touch, sight and hearing, in addition to our sense of movement, body position, and force of gravity. When the brain is not able to accurately interpret incoming sensory information, problems may result in poor learning, delayed motor skills, and difficult or disruptive behaviors.
Occupational therapists trained in sensory integration dysfunction and therapeutic strategies guides children through individual treatment programs.
