General Information


sensory integration research

Sensory integration research includes the conclusion that incorporating varied sensory stimulating activities may help the behavior of an autistic individual toward better attention span, learning, sleep as well as the simple fun of becoming aware of one's senses, from smell, touch, taste, hearing, and seeing.

A tool that may be used for therapy is the rocking, swinging and floating motion provided by the floating bed. Pictures here. Article about it here.

Swings also provide motion, balance, space awareness for sensory integration therapy. See pictures below.
