Introduction

Sensory integration refers to the processing, integration and organization of sensory information from the body and environment.

“The neurological process that organizes sensation from one’s own body and from the environment and makes it possible to use the body effectively with the environment.”

Sensory integration is important in all things that we need to do on a daily basis, such as getting dressed, eating, moving around, socializing, learning and working.

FAQs

Sensory Integration Therapy (SIT) is a form of therapy that aims to help kids with sensory processing issues by exposing them to sensory stimulation in a structured, repetitive way. The therapy is grounded on Ayres’s theory of sensory processing and is commonly provided by occupational therapists.

In traditional SIT, the occupational therapist exposes a child to sensory stimulation through repetitive activities. The activities gradually become more challenging and complex. The idea is that through repetition, the child’s nervous system will respond in a more “organized” way to sensations and movement.

Techniques in SIT include Play-Based Activities, Swinging and Spinning, Deep Pressure Activities, Brushing Protocol, Weighted Vests and Blankets, Therapeutic Listening, and Visual Stimulation.

The duration for noticeable results can vary greatly depending on the individual’s unique sensory needs and the frequency of therapy sessions.

While SIT can be used as a standalone treatment, it is often combined with other therapies for a more comprehensive approach.
