The definition of sensory integration
Sensory integration is the capability of your brain to receive, process and react to external visual, auditory and tactile stimuli. The brain acquires and develops this ability throughout life, although most intensely in the first few years of a child's life. Disturbances in those processes cause a lot of symptoms in sensory integration disorders.
When will you know that you need to improve your reaction to external stimuli?
If your brain does not work properly, you will feel it. It is usually revealed by lack of concentration, lack of the energy during the day and by insomnia. It means that there are disturbances in your brain reaction. This problem can cause hyperactivity or apathy, irritability and many other similar symptoms. They may be the results of sensory integration disorders. Nowadays, different types of sensory integration therapy are successfully used.

The therapy of sensory integration is an improvement in the organization or reorganization of brain work through exercises in which the child experiences a variety of sensory stimuli during movement. It is a complement to therapies which teach a child to read and write. A modern invention which also helps is a weighted blanket. Thanks to its special filling it makes a pressure on a user. This pressure is supposed to stimulate nervous and muscle system while sleeping. Using it and the special therapy, you can improve the concentration. It provides better activity of brain and muscles.
