Sensory Integration Therapy

Taxonomy Code: LR-6200.8000

Programs that offer therapeutic sessions which treat individuals, usually children, who have sensory processing disorder (also known as sensory integrative dysfunction), a condition in which the brain has difficulty organizing information about one's own body and the world that is gained through the five senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch). Difficulties may also affect the proprioceptive system which provides a sense of the position of the body in space and the vestibular system which provides a sense of how the body is moving even when the eyes are closed. Sensory integration is practiced by occupational therapists who design individual programs or a "sensory diet" to help individuals process and use sensory information.
