Sensory Integration

Sensory integration is a specialty area of occupational therapy that is based on over 40 years of theory and research. The term “sensory integration” refers to:

  • The way the brain organizes sensations for engagement in occupation
  • A theory based on neuroscience that provides perspective for appreciating the sensory dimensions of human behavior
  • A model for understanding the way in which sensation affects development
  • Assessments including standardized testing, systematic observation, and parent or teacher interviews that identify patterns of sensory integration dysfunction
  • Intervention strategies that enhance information processing, praxis, and engagement in daily life for individuals, populations and organizations
