What is Sensory Integration Disorder?
Sometimes information from the senses is not received and organized correctly by a child’s nervous system, resulting in an inability to develop, learn, and behave normally. Trouble in the organizing of information is called sensory integration disorder. It also goes by “sensory processing dysfunction.”
Sensory Processing Therapy at Kid’s Creek Therapy utilizes occupational therapy and/or physical therapy to provide a multidisciplinary treatment approach for children who have trouble making use of sensory information. Therapy is designed to help a child attain his greatest potential for development and learning. An important part of development is the ability to organize information coming from the senses such as smell, taste, touch, sight, hearing, and movement.
