LATE SUMMER 2022
What on Earth is
As the parent of two children with autism, the term “sensory integration” is
not new to me. My older son, never experienced the social and/or cognitive
challenges that seriously impacted his ability to navigate his world independently,
so was never diagnosed with autism. However, his sensory issues came out often.
As a preschooler, he would climb up playground activities very cautiously. He had
difficulties with handwriting. Those are the two biggest issues I remember about
him during his early school years.
Having heard that term frequently during my children’s school years doesn’t
necessarily mean that I know what the term means. To provide the how, what,
why, and wherefore about Sensory Integration, I am pleased to introduce Lillian
Chen-Byerley, MS, OTR/L, C/NDT, RCTC, an Occupational Therapist with
“Although sensory integration dysfunction (DSI) has been around since
1954 when A. Jean Ayres Ph.D. pioneered and researched this topic, few
have truly understood the depth of which her theory encompassed. Present-day
neuroscience continues to expand and support the neurobiological meaning
which I hope to summarize here. Thus, the term sensory integration is based on
the work of Dr. Ayres to describe the theory and the intervention; whereas, a new
nosology is used to describe the diagnostic category of this disorder known as
sensory processing disorder (SPD).
Dr. Ayres sought out initially to identify how poor processing of sensory
stimuli affected the child, resulting in atypical motor, social/emotional, and
functional patterns of behavior. These behaviors were hypothesized to interfere
with end product competencies in speech/language, attention, and motor.
Widely recognized as A. Jean Ayres’ definition of sensory integration.
A Jean Ayres, 1989
Sensory integration is the neurological process that
organizes sensations from one’s body and from the
environment and makes it possible to use the body to
make adaptive responses within the environment. To do
this, the brain must register, select, interpret, compare,
and associate sensory information in a flexible, constantly
Simply said, sensory integration is the relatedness of one to others, one to
their environment, and one’s ability to adjust oneself to function within the
environment with oneself, others, and objects within it.
Ayres’ theory and intervention are based on categorizing seven neurosensory
systems and the relationship of each with one another. Alfred Tomatis, MD,
also developed his framework similarly identifying the same basic systems as
Ayres. Current neuroscience research continues to verify and confirm these
sensory systems as:
Known to be one of the first sensory organs completed in utero, this system provides us with
information to help detect and process our sense of movement, the pull of earth’s gravity, and
position in space. “A well-modulated vestibular activity is very important for maintaining a
calm, alert state. The vestibular system also helps keep the level of arousal of the nervous
system balanced. An under-active vestibular system contributes to hyperactivity and
distractibility because of its modulating influence.” A. Jean Ayres Ineffective processing of
this system may lead to sensory-based motor disorder or sensory modulation disorder.
As it sounds, this system is responsible for our sense of touch. The tactile system addresses
the surface area of our body including the skin, hair, hands, feet, and oral motor cavity.
Ineffective processing of this system leads to sensory discrimination disorder or sensory
This system allows one to process information and gain information from our internal sense
which comes from our joints and muscles. One could say this system is a necessary foundation
for muscle memory. Generally, problems in the area are associated with tactile and/or
vestibular issues which lead to sensory modulation and sensory-based motor disorder.
This system serves as the sensory integrator of two basic systems within the ear (vestibular and
cochlear) and is responsible for 90% of our brain’s processing, Sixty percent of the stimuli to
the brain originate from the bones, joints, and muscles through the vestibular system, while
the remaining forty percent is from the sound processed through the cochlea. Since the brain
needs stimuli to be nourished, the stimuli and significance of it from the ear is the perception
of different sound wave frequencies.
This system is now known to be reflective of auditory processing and therefore, it is the ability
to perceive and make sense of spatial orientation and direction (vertical vs. horizontal), color,
shape, assess the intensity of light, process form, etc.
Olfactory & Gustatory:
This system is responsible for our sense of smells, odors, and tastes, and measures the
intensity of them. Often we find that individuals who seek excessive salt, sweetness, or hot
spice are under-reactive, while people who tolerate only very bland or have a limited
repertoire of foods are overly reactive. Likewise, some demonstrate difficulty with smells
which may result in nausea or emesis.
Dr. Ayres further established four categories in the 1960s to classify and refine specific
sensory manifestations as seen by sensory modulation dysfunction (SMD), developmental
dyspraxia, bilateral integration dysfunction, and generalized dysfunction (a combination
of all areas). The SPD
identifies three primary
as sensory modulation
dysfunction (SMD) is
the ability one has to take in sensory sensations be it auditory, visual, gustatory, olfactory, or
tactile stimuli, by interpreting what it is and filtering what is important while ignoring what is
not by inhibiting that sensation. Often, as seen in the Today Show video, children with SMD
are unable to process information to cause them to have ineffective sensory modulators.
Examples that are often reported may be being unable to tolerate smells from the lunch room,
intolerance for noise such as that of other children or fireworks/vacuum cleaners, being
unable to move without fear or feeling nauseous, clothes that are intolerable, craving
bumping and crashing into things/people. Or, perhaps the opposite is observed where the
child does not seem cuddly or recognize when they are hurt, does not seem to hear auditory
information, or will not sit still. Often one may hear this being described as being
over-reactive or under-reactive.” M
“I combined my two passions in life:
special needs children and photography.”
Most families, over the years, fill photo albums with pictures of their children.
Some also go through the ritual of formal photography sessions, from time to
time. Outcomes of these sessions can be unpredictable for any family,
and sometimes even more so for children who have special
needs (sensory, cognitive, physical, etc.).
Many photographers don’t have much experience
with these circumstances, but some specialize
with these families. One such business is
PhotoFab in Deerfield IL.
I am pleased to introduce Photo Fab’s
owner, Fabiana (a special education
teacher and therapist before turning
to photography) to tell us how a bit
(generally) about how she shapes photo
sessions for families with challenges to
make them picture perfect.
“I’d love to have our family photos taken but
my child won’t look at the camera and follow
“He/she is always chewing on a shirt, looking at the
“It’s painful to see other neurotypical kids’s beautiful graduation photos,
knowing that my child is not able to have them…”
“We once had a professional photo shoot and
the photographer kept getting frustrated
because my child wouldn’t cooperate…”
Sounds familiar? Yes, I’ve heard it all a
million times during my 30 plus years of
working as a Special Education teacher
There is a gap and a need for photographers that are
familiar with the particular needs of this community,
someone who not only has the expertise in taking beautiful
images but also understands what’s in front of them,
someone who won’t ask for what’s impossible but
instead make magic with what’s available.
This is exactly why I decided to combine my two passions
in life: special needs children and photography.
I became certified by “Special Needs Photographers of
America” and started Photofab Photography, specializing
in these wonderful children and their families.
My sessions are child-led; by that I mean that I
customize the session to each particular child
and his/ her specific needs.
Prior to the session I conduct a lengthy
interview with the parents in order to get
as much information as possible. I want to
know what the condition is, physical
limitations, preferred items and activities,
places, songs, snacks, etc. Is the child
happiest while in front of a screen? organizing
toys? dancing? swimming? jumping? Most
importantly I also want to know what are absolute
dislikes that will cause the child to lose interest and
cooperation or become over stimulated. I like to
provide parents with a social book for non-verbal
kids so they can read and prepare for the
photoshoot, this seems to help with anxiety
and answer any questions they may have.
During the sessions I usually bring with me a
number of props and tricks to make them fun

Many activities present difficulties for children (and adults) with
sensory or physical challenges. But perhaps none more than using
public outdoor areas such as playgrounds and nature areas. Schools,
park districts, and other entities across the country have addressed
these concerns. One such organization is the Four Rivers
Environmental Education Center in Channahon IL.
The district offers a wide variety of
educational and recreational programs
including virtual programs that are
presented online via Zoom webinars.
All programs are listed on the Event
Calendar at ReconnectWithNature.org.
Four Rivers Environmental Education Center is part of the Forest
Preserve District of Will County. It was named a Certified Autism
Center in 2020 and now features an All-Persons Trail.
For more information, please contact
the public information officer:
The trail has five interactive, multisensory display panels, and
visually or cognitively impaired visitors can use handheld audio units
to provide trail narration. Participants can stop for an activity at each
interpretive panel. The All-Persons Trail includes tactile paving, which
lets visually impaired visitors know when to stop for an interpretive
panel, and tactile signs for guests who learn best by touch.
Four Rivers also will be offering Sensory Sunday programs on
Sept. 4 and Oct. 30 for those with sensory processing needs. The
building will only be open to registered participants at this time.
Call 815-722-9470 to register.
In addition to Four Rivers, the Forest Preserve owns Isle a la

Just about everyone has trouble keeping their cool from time to
time. Very young children, who are just learning social skills such as
sharing, are developmentally more vulnerable to squabbles and fits
of temper. Pile sensory or neurological conditions such as autism onto
this, and parents and other caregivers can have a very difficult time
indeed (not to mention the children themselves).
Therapists can provide assistance to children and families dealing
with emotional regulation issues. One such therapist is Catherine
Schully, MS, LPC, RPT, a registered play therapist who also has
created a course for parents called Parenting W Play.
I am pleased to welcome Catherine, to tell you a little about play
therapy in general, and her course in particular, and how both help
children, with and without divergent abilities, and their families.
“Hi, my name is Cat and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and
Registered Play Therapist from Louisiana. I have been working with
children and families for well over 6 years and have found a missing
ingredient in childhood behavioral health.
That Missing Ingredient is YOU!
As a child therapist, I have learned that parents are the best people
to serve as their child’s therapeutic agent! I mean think about it, in
therapy, a child has to build trust and rapport with the clinician
before change can really take place. This is not something you can
force! In my experience, that trust can take 6 months to 1 year to build.
I am as patient as can be and have no problem taking that time with
kids in therapy, but I also understand the frustration parents experience
being stuck at home still dealing with the behavioral problems day
in and day out.
This is why I created my program, Parenting W Play!
I know that parents already have that trust and innate bond with
their children so it just makes sense that they could produce faster
and more long-lasting changes in their child’s ability to regulate
emotions, follow limits, and so much more. I also know that children
communicate and process their words the most effectively using play
because that is their most natural language.
My program is for parents of children between 5 and 10 years old and
consists of 3 courses: Tantrum Tamer, Confident Emotion Regulator,
and Motivated Power Struggle Master.
Tantrum Tamer is an introductory 4-week course where you will
learn skills in emotion coaching and reflective responding that will
help you learn effective strategies for bringing the temperature down
during a temper tantrum as opposed to adding fuel to the fire. By
honing these skills, you may even be able to stop a tantrum in its
tracks before it escalates.
Upon completion of Tantrum Tamer, you will be able to move on to
Confident Emotion Regulator, which is a 6-week course that builds
off of the skills learned in Tantrum Tamer. In this course, you will
fully grasp the importance of serving as the key regulator of your
child’s emotions and how you play a role in helping them learn
how to regulate their emotions on their own.
The final course is Motivated Power Struggle Master, which is
another 6-week course that offers education in appropriate limit
setting that promotes putting your child in the driver’s seat of their
consequences and keeps you from having to be the “bad guy.”
Each course includes using play as a tool to connect with your child
and support their behavioral health development. After all, if you are
not playing with your child, you are not communicating with them!
In the end, you will feel like a totally in-control parent!
