Sensory Integration Dysfunction

Sensory integration dysfunctions means that a child with autism experiences sights, sounds, touches, smells and tastes in a manner that is profoundly different from that of typical children due to a complex series of atypical signals or connections between the sensory organs and the brain.

Every minute can be a battle against invasive sensations that overwhelm their hyper-acute sensory systems. Or conversely, their senses may be hypoactive, requiring a lot of effort to alert their bodies so that learning and social interaction can take place. On top of that, they may have the inability to filter and process more than one sensory modality at a time.
