Sensory Activities

 
Sensory based disorders are associated with a variety of other disorders or syndromes including, but not limited to, Autism, developmental or congenital disabilities, cerebral palsy, and other brain or nervous system disorders or injuries. In an estimated 20% of cases, the sensory processing disorder is idiopathic, meaning it does not appear to be associated with another disorder.
 
        Sensory Processing Disorder is the inability of using information received through our senses for typical function. Some functional impairments that have been observed with Sensory Processing Disorder include:
  • decreased social skills & participation in play activities
  • decreased duration, frequency, and complexity of adaptive responses
  • impaired self-confidence and/or self-esteem
  • deficient adaptive or daily life skills
  • diminished fine, gross, and sensory motor skill development
