Sensory integration is the process of producing an accurate picture of our surroundings through the collaboration of our senses (touch, movement, body awareness, sight, sound and the pull of gravity). It is an important function of the brain that is responsible for allowing us to move and function in our environment. The organization of our senses develops in the course of ordinary childhood activities. The adaptive behavior that is result of this organization is called motor planning. For most of us, effective sensory integration occurs automatically, unconsciously, and without effort. However, for some of us, the process is inefficient and inaccurate, requiring increased effort and greater consciousness with no guarantee of accuracy.
