Sensory Integration

An approach to managing sensory issues

Some children are over-responsive to sensation and feel as if they’re being constantly bombarded with sensory information. They may attempt to minimize the sensory overload by avoiding being touched, or being particular about clothing. Some children are under-responsive and have an almost insatiable desire for sensory stimulation.


They may seek out constant stimulation by taking part in extreme activities, playing music loudly or constantly moving. They sometimes don’t notice heat, cold or pain and may need high intensity input to get involved in activities. For more information see http://www.sensoryintegration.org.uk
