SENSORY MOTOR DISORDERS
our nervous system is constantly detecting, integrating, modulating and discriminating numerous sensory messages in our environment.
responds by sending motor commands to our arms, legs, eyes, etc.
of these motor orders implies postural reactions and praxias.
MOTOR DISORDERS of a sensory nature relates to the use of input and organization of a motor response.
POSTURAL DISORDER is a disorder related to the ability to control one’s body at rest or in action.
It is characterized by problems with muscle tone and muscle contractions. It concerns balance, left-right discrimination and body coordination.
A postural problem may, for example, result in difficulties in fine motor tasks.
The praxias are the motor skills that allow us to plan, sequence and coordinate our movements for a specific purpose. The correct implementation of our praxis requires both efficient sensory integration (unconscious) and reflection (conscious).
DYSPRAXIC children do not receive sufficient sensory feedback to adjust their actions.
They have to pay a lot of attention than normal, to accomplish simple tasks.
