To function and participate in the world that surrounds us, we need to use our senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch). Senses provide people with unique experiences and allow us to interact and be involved with the rest of society. They help us to understand the environment around us and respond within it. Our senses play a significant role in determining what actions we take in a particular situation. Imagine what happens when one, or all, of your senses are intensified or are not present at all, often referred to as sensory integration dysfunction. This is the case with many children with autism. The auditory system is situated in the inner ear, this informs us about sounds In the environment. It is the most commonly recognised aspect of sensory impairment.
