General Information


sensory integration issues in a 5 year old boy

Sensory integration issues in a 5 year old boy include the brain’s inability to recognize or integrate signals, data, or information from the body’s senses—visual, hearing, smell, taste, heat/cold, pain, the parts and functions of the body.

Below is an book review from a parent who has a 6-year-old son and how becoming educated has helped this parent.  After reading the other reviews on sensory integration for children, the book helps parents work on “accepting” that their child is different and then move on to learning the different way their child perceives the world and from this knowledge, it is a positive experience for both child and parent.

Josh's mom (St. Paul, MN USA) - See all my reviews

My six year old son has struggled with dyspraxia and sensory integration challenges, and this has helped us more than any other book I've found to date. I expected that it would provide me with some new ideas for mitigating difficult situations, which it did...what I did not expect was that it would impact Josh directly and profoundly. This year he has become increasingly aware that he's "different", which has been the source of great sadness. As I read the book, I shared anecdotes with him that were consistent with our experiences with soccer, eating, homework, and more, and it provided such relief to Josh to learn that there are other boys like him in this world. My thanks to the authors for sharing their stories, and for helping us to understand more about what we can do now and what's ahead as he grows older. -
