Sensory Integration Dysfunction Symptoms:

 

·         Tactile: the sense of touch; input from the skin receptors about touch, pressure, temperature, pain and movement of the hairs on the skin.

·         Vestibular: the sense of movement; input from the inner ear about equilibrium, gravitational changes, movement experiences and position in space.

·         Proprioception: the sense of “position”; input from the muscles and joints about body position, weight, pressure, stretch, movement and changes in position.

·         Auditory: input relating to sounds; one’s ability to correctly perceive, discriminate, process and respond to sounds

·         Oral: input relating to the mouth; one’s ability to correctly perceive, discriminate, process and respond to input within the mouth

·         Olfactory: input relating to smell; one’s ability to correctly perceive, discriminate, process and respond to different odors.

·         Visual: input relating to sight; one’s ability to correctly perceive, discriminate, process and respond to what one sees.

 

 

 

Since we are talking about input into the senses, it is those senses which must be looked at carefully and which will be affected. It is a careful observer (the one I wish for in every child’s life!) who will pay close attention to which senses are affected and the frequency, duration, and intensity of these sensory integration dysfunction symptoms.
