This resource has been designed to work on self-esteem and sensory integration. Often, children who struggle with sensory integration. Sensory integration is the term used to describe the way the brain organises sensations that an individual experiences within their environment. When an individual has sensory integration, they can: receive or take in sensory stimuli, interpret stimuli, process the stimuli into a response, and adaptively respond to the stimuli. The sensory system takes information from the environment through the senses: touch, smell, sound, vision, taste, movement and gravity. It processes or interprets these sensations together to make sense of the environment. Consequently, this sensory integration process lays the foundation for efficient operation of the nervous system and other parts of the body that respond to the signals sent by the nervous system. The child can therefore respond to these sensory inputs and makes appropriate responses to perform skills required.


When sensory integration is difficult for a child, they may require some extra support. Any form of extra support can impact on self-esteem if not done appropriately. This resource will therefore show you how to use the materials in your box to work on both sensory integration and self-esteem.
