Sensory Processing Difficulties:
Sensory Processing is the way in which our brain takes in, organises and uses sensory information. When sensory processing is ineffective, a child can have problems responding and interacting with their environment. It affects their emotions, movement, attention and the ability to respond appropriately to sensory input.
Children with sensory processing difficulties need sensory circuits and sensory breaks to appropriately have their sensory needs met so that they are then able to focus on lesson tasks. Sensory circuits and sensory breaks often focus predominantly on vestibular and proprioceptive sensory input.
