"Sensory integration is the ability to organize sensory information for use... that enables man to interact effectively with the environment" (Ayers)
We constantly receive sensory information (vision, auditory, tactile etc.), and then the brain interprets it and turns it into appropriate motor and behavioral responses. When the information is not appropriately perceived or organized, it causes us movement, behavioral and functional difficulties. Please refer to Sings of SPD.
