Definitions for "Sensory Integration"
Information is received from both internal and external environments through the five senses of vision, touch, taste, hearing, vision, and smell. Our senses are integrated when the nervous system directs this information to the appropriate parts of the brain that enables an individual to attain skills.
The ability of the central nervous system to process and learn from sensations such as touch, sound, light, smell, and movement.
"is the organization of sensations for use. Our senses give us information about the physical conditions of our body and the environment around us. Sensations for into the brain like streams flowing into a lake." ...."The brain must organize all of these sensations if a person is to move and learn and behave normally."(Dr. A. Jean Ayres, Sensory Integration and the Child, Western Psychological Services, 1981, pg.5.)
