Sensory Integration (SI)

"Every child has an appetite for sensory nourishment.  Inner drive, or self-motiviation, urges him to participate in experiences that promote sensory integration.  For the out-of-sync child, he will not respond in an ordinary way to ordinary sensations.  The child may be hypersensitive, hyposensitive, or be "on and off" and have a combination of these extremes..." Carol Stock Kranowitz, The Out-Of-Sync Child: Recognizing and Coping With Sensory Integration Dysfunction (Revised Edition)

Hacking My Child's Brain a blog by Mark Woodman 
My son's brain can't handle all of the sensory input his body is sending him. Caleb has Sensory Processing Disorder, the human equivalent of a computer that can't adequately multitask, or a network that drops packets when there is a lot of traffic. All of his senses work individually, but his brain loses information when they are combined. This problem wasn't obvious to us when he was younger, but now that he is in first grade, the complications are growing...

Sensory Differences by Valerie Thea Vandermeer
Since young children encounter new stimuli on a regular basis, their nervous systems spend a lot of time in this process of determining the nature of sensory input and how the brain will organize and relate to various events.  But many children being born today are not habituating to sensory stimuli in typical fashion. This is often called sensory integration disorder or dysfunction and is considered a problem with the processing mechanism of the nervous system...

Sensory Processing in The Mislabeled Child
Sensory processing behaviors tend to impact at least one of the five senses (sight, sound, touch / balance, smell, taste), but frequently behaviors may straddle a few of these. Because the senses are designed to alert people to danger and to help us function and negotiate our world on automatic pilot, sensory problems are often seen with sensory regulation problems (moodiness, anxiety, explosive spells) and children may not be fully aware of their overload until it's too late...
