The Early Years Matter Series: Sensory Integration for All Children: Basics & Beyond

Sensory integration disorder or dysfunction (SID) is a neurological disorder that results from the brain's inability to integrate certain information received from the body's five basic sensory systems. There is a growing awareness now that many children who are fostered or adopted do have sensory integration issues as well as attachment issues. There is a complex relationship between the two, and unresolved sensory issues can hinder the ability of parents and children to resolve attachment issues. This workshop explains risk factors and warning signs for sensory processing disorders and offers practical interventions for parents.
