Sensory integration dysfunction is a disorder characterized by a sensory integration deficit.[citation needed] The more current diagnostic nosology (Miller et al., 2007) uses the term sensory processing disorder to describe this condition.

Sensory integration dysfunction (SID) was first studied in-depth by Anna Jean Ayres. Ayres describes sensory integration as the ability to organize sensory information for use by the brain. An individual with sensory integration dysfunction would therefore have an inability to organize sensory information as it comes in through the senses.[1]

As a symptomEdit

Along with sensory processing dysfunction, the term sensory integration dysfunction is used informally in the medical literature to describe any such difficulty. Various conditions can involve sensory integration dysfunction, such as schizophrenia,[2][3][4] succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase deficiency,[5] primary nocturnal enuresis,[6] prenatal alcohol exposure, learning difficulties[7] and autism,[8][9][10] as well as people with traumatic brain injury[11] or who have had cochlear implants placed.[12]

As a discrete disorderEdit

The concept of sensory integration dysfunction as a discrete disorder was popularized by Anna Jean Ayres, an occupational therapist. Today, some occupational therapists argue in favor of creating a discrete diagnostic category for sensory integration dysfunction,[citation needed] but this position is disputed.[13][14] SID is not a recognized diagnosis in the DSM-IV-TR or the ICD-10.
