Treatment for Sensory Integration

What is challenging behaviour

This is the process of organising information we receive from our senses for use in daily life. Our sensory systems receive information from our environment and our bodies, which it organises, interprets and responds to in an appropriate way for the task/situation at hand.

Sensory processing difficulties affect the way in which the brain receives information that comes in through the senses and how it turns that information into appropriate motor and behavioural responses.

The occupational therapist (OT) determines through a thorough evaluation whether SI therapy is necessary.

OT Assessment

Sensory Profile

Treatment:

The theory behind sensory integration therapy is that over time, the brain will adapt and allow those with difficulties to process and react to sensations more efficiently.

This approach may also expose the individual to sensory stimulation through repetitive activities, gradually making them more challenging and complex. The idea is that through repetition, the nervous system responds in a more “organized” way to sensations and movement.

The OT will use a sensory integration approach to help individuals to gain greater self-awareness of how they engage with their environment. This information will provide information on how to self-regulate.
