Sensory Integration Therapy, Sensory Integration Disorder, Sensory Processing, Sensory Issues In Kids

A small active kid always tends to get his/her clothes and face dirty while playing outdoors, but what if the kid doesn’t realize that he/she is dirty, or doesn’t sense dirt on his/her body. Or there could be that the child is more sensitive to dirt or runny nose than normal. All these are signs of Sensory Integration Disorder or SID.

Sensory Integration Disorder(SID) is a disorder that affects the sensory organs or parts of the body. This disorder is majorly found in children and can be present in adults. It is characterized by an increase or decrease in the sensitivity of one or all senses.

Children diagnosed with SID experience different sensitivities than normal levels. This varies from child to child, with one experiencing hypersensitivity to one Experiencing hyposensitivity. Therefore, every child has to be treated as an individual with unique characteristics and treatments.

The most famous and proven way of treating SID is through occupational therapy.

How Occupational Therapy can help in treating SID

Sensory Integration Disorder is not very commonly diagnosed in children and is usually warded off by parents as something kids do. But it is important for parents to recognize the signs of SID at the earliest.

Once you start doubting whether your kid has SID, it’s time to consult a professional OT(Occupational therapist) such as the skilled OTs at Theracure. The OTs examine the child to make sure that he/she has it and to establish how to move on with therapy.

As mentioned earlier, all children and unique in their own way, and therefore, it is important to plan a therapy revolving around the child in concern. The most famous way to treat SID is Sensory Integration Therapy.

Sensory Integration therapy involves activities conducted by the OT which could help the child to get accustomed to his/her senses. These activities involve a particular diet that helps the child to learn to adapt and accept the sensory stimuli, the normal world presents.

The OT-SI therapy is a slow process that starts off with minor changes and activities and then gradually moves on to being complex. The duration of this therapy might range anywhere from a few months to many years.

Some types of therapies under OT-SI include physical therapy, vision therapy, listening therapy, Psychotherapy, and speech, and language therapy.

These therapies are based on the individual child and depend on which senses have been affected. It also revolves around many factors, which help OTs shape specific sensory diets for the kid.

Sensory Integration Disorder in Adults

As we mentioned earlier, Secondary Integration Disorder can also persist till adulthood, if the child is not treated in his/her childhood itself. This unfortunately is not a very rare scenario as many parents have brushed the disorder in children as something children do.

Therefore, there are cases in which adults suffer from SID. This disorder causes malice in their life and even hinders their growth in terms of everything, from career to social life and even personal life. It could also lead to serious repercussions for the individual suffering from it.

But this is also treatable. Adults diagnosed with SID can be treated by Occupational Therapy. The steps are similar to those mentioned for children, except it’s now the adult who has to make sure that the activities prescribed by the OT are followed at home as well.

Sensory Integration can reduce confidence and make it difficult for individuals both adults and children to go about their daily activities. But with the right consultation and therapy from professional OTs, it is treatable and the person can live about without facing any difficulty in their normal lives.
