A child with a sensory integration disorder can show some of the following signs:
- Overly sensitive to touch, movement, sight, sound and/or smell.
- Challenges in the areas of coordination and poor organisation for movement.
- Under reaction to sensory stimulation.
- Activity level that is unusually high or unusually low.
- Delays in speech, language, motor skills or academic achievement.
Sensory Integration aims to regulate the child as completely as possible and maximise their availability for learning and social interaction.
