Sensory Integration

 

Occupational therapy focuses on the organization of sensory information for the use in the classroom, on the playground, in activities of daily living, and relationships and interactions with others.

"Sensory" pertains to our senses; hearing, sight, smell, touch, taste, and perception of motion, movement and gravity.

"Integration" is the process of unifying or allowing the brain to use the information that the senses take in.
