An Overview of Sensory Integration Dysfunction

 This presentation includes an overview of sensory integration, the basic neurological components underlying it, an explanation of each sensory system, and how the organization or lack of organization of these systems can contribute to a person’s ability to function at home, in school, and in society. A child with sensory integration dysfunction has difficulty with taking in and processing sensory stimulation and producing an appropriate response to it. This may result in a child having difficulties such as problems transitioning between situations, being easily overstimulated, frequent tantrums during which it is difficult to calm them, and many more issues which interfere with their ability to function throughout their daily routines.  They are often misdiagnosed as having behavioral problems, ADHD, psychological, or social disorders. The intent of this presentation is to help people to better understand the signs of sensory integration dysfunction so that it may be identified more quickly in children. Early identification and treatment of sensory integration dysfunction can result in a child being able to participate in daily routines with more ease and comfort.
