"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.

"I met Yoshie when she visited the Philippines during a clinical reasoning workshop.
We were both in the same group during clinical skills exercises with real patients and it was then that I observed her calm and skillful composure with patients. She was very knowledgeable as an occupational therapist and really had a pleasant and joyful manner with kids! "
