ACQUISITION OF EQUIPMENT FOR A SENSORY INTEGRATION ROOM
Sensorial integration is the process of the brain to organize and interpret external stimulation like movements, touch, smell, vision and sound. People with deficiency show syptoms of sensorial disfunction, making easy for them to process information brought by the 5 senses. People with deficiency may have soft, moderato or intense sensorial consequence, manifestated also by hipersensibility or hiposensibility to sound, etc... For example: a hipersensitive child may avoid be touched meanwhile a hiposensible one will look for stimulation of feeling objects may like to be in tight, restrict or hot places, (a bed with blankets or wardrobes) Many behaviors usually seen as "autistic behaviors" like: walking on the toes, waving hands and spining, may be in fact symptoms of sensorial integrations disfunctions.
The objective of Sensorial integration therapy is to facilitate the development of habilities of the nervous system so that it can process sensorial stimulation normaly. With therapy, the brain puts the sensorial messages alltogether and gives back the correct information in response to the stimulus given.
Sensorial integration therapy uses neurosensorial and neuromotor exercises, in order to stimulate the hability of the brain for autorepair.
When therapy is succeed, it may develop atention, concentration, listening, comprehension, equilibrium, coordination and impulse control in people
