SEN: Sensory Integration and Motor Skill Development
Sensory integration is the ability to take in information through the senses of touch, movement, smell, taste, vision, and hearing, and to combine the resulting perceptions with prior information, memories, and knowledge already stored in the brain. The mid-brain and brain stem regions of the central nervous system are early centers in the processing pathway for sensory integration. These brain regions are involved in processes including coordination, attention, and autonomic function. After sensory information passes through these centers, it is then routed to brain regions responsible for emotions, memory, and higher level cognitive functions in order to derive coherent meaning from processing the stimuli.
Towards that end, our SEN faculty engage students having such difficulties in various activities such as photo frame making, clay modeling and stacking coloured object in particular order, to develop the sensory integration and the overall improvement of the child’s gross motor skills.
