Five MORE neural systems which impact Sensory Dysfunction:

  •  Equilibrioception – sense of balance or vestibular sense
  •  Thermoception –temperature different
  • Temporal - sense of time
  •  Nociciption – sensation of pain
  • Proprioception and Kinesthesia –orientation and motion of one’s limbs and body in space

Do YOU know a person with some of these sensory dysfunctions? 

We expect our students on the Autism Spectrum to have Sensory problems – but look a little deeper and you might be surprised find with one or more sensory dysfunction – maybe even you!
