Developmentally appropriate pre school classrooms should include sensory motor and sensory integration approaches to help improve the individual needs of students, including those with development disabilities and children with autism. The first task of this paper was to look at the sensory dysfunction, how it affects the individual students over all body awareness and behavior. This research reviewed the developing brain of the young child looking into the individual areas of the brain where the sensory system is developed and processed. This paper also reviewed the sensory dysfunction of children with autism and why their development is hindered by their disability. The paper ends with enjoyable activities to help improve the students overall sensory integration.
