Occupational Therapy and Sensory Integration Therapy

The occupational therapist assesses and treats children’s ability to conduct activities of daily living (ADL).

Occupational therapy boosts a child’s participation and emotional well-being in ADL activities like play, leisure, or self-care activities involving feeding, dressing, and personal hygiene.

Sensory integration is a relatively new profession within occupational therapy.

“Sensory integration is the neurological process that organizes sensation from one’s own body and from the environment and makes it possible to use the body effectively within the environment.” (Dr. Jean Ayres, 1989)

As a result, the occupational therapist is responsible for arranging the child’s experiences in sensory integration sessions to ensure their correct usage and growth in their physical, social, and personal environment.

To enhance ADL function, the brain must inhibit unnecessary information so that we can focus on what is needed for learning.

Children with developmental disorders, neurological diseases, motor delays, sensory disorders or dysfunctions, learning difficulties (dyslexia, dyscalculia, etc.) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) receive therapy by occupational therapists.

Furthermore, sensory integration aids in the correct learning of the writing process with the particular program How to learn to Write
