Communication Disability In Sensory Integration Dysfunction

Children suffering from Sensory Integration Dysfunction cannot process information from senses like – vision, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. So they cannot respond properly to these senses. This condition may cause problems with development and behavior in the child.
Children suffering from Autism spectrum disabilities generally have sensory integration dysfunction. This condition may also arise in premature birth, brain injury and many other conditions. But the exact cause is still not known.

The following communication disabilities may be seen in a child suffering from Sensory Integration Dysfunction:

  • Get uncomfortable to touch
  • Get over sensitive about odors and sounds.
  • Difficulty to calm and control after exhaustion and sadness.
  • No variety and creativity is seen while playing or enjoying.
  • No reaction to people’s talk.
  • Do not pay attention to anybody.
  • Avoids playground equipment
  • Making unnecessary movements which interfere with daily activities.
  • Seems anxious about everything.
  • Difficulty making friends.
  • Cannot express emotions.
  • Prefers to stay in the dark.
  • Stares at people or objects unusually.
  • Avoids eye contact.

Sensory Integration Dysfunction is often detected by an occupational therapist or physical therapist. They focus on activities which can improve the child’s sensitivity.
