Sensory Integration - Exploring The World Through Our Senses by Aynsley Carter
 

This presentation aims to provide you with a clear over-view of the relationship between the brain and our senses, an understanding of how to support children in their development through sensory integration activities and an understanding of the role Occupational Therapists play in working with theory of sensory integration. We will review the concept of Sensory Integration and how this methodology assists with overall development. Topics that will be covered include:
 

Defining Sensory Integration
The brain
The central nervous system
Why does movement matter
Primitive Reflexes
The role we play in our childen's development
Our sensory systems
Signs of sensory dysfunction
What helps us to process sensory information
The relationship between Occupational Therapy and Sensory Integration 
 

Dr. Jean Ayres, the creator behind the methodology of Sensory Integration, hypothesized that some children have an impairment in sensory integration which manifests in difficulties observed in purposeful behaviours. This dysfunction in sensory integration may explain why some children have trouble learning new skills, organizing themselves, regulating their attention, participating in school or play activities, and engaging in positive social experiences. Participating in this presentation will provide you with a clear over-view of the relationship between the brain and our senses, an understanding of how to support children in their development through sensory integration activities and an understanding of the role Occupational Therapists play in working with theory of sensory integration.
