About Sensory Processing
What is Sensory Processing?
Sensory Processing refers to the way the nervous system receives messages from the senses. Sometimes the sensations are poorly detected and interpreted and atypical responses may be observed. The exact cause of sensory processing difficulties has not been determined. Symptoms may affect daily life functioning and treatment depends on the child’s individual needs. It is important to include families as critical members of the team. It is also essential that the therapist capture salient information about the infant, toddler, or child’s sensory processing impact on daily life performance.
