Effect of sensory integrative therapy on the coordination of children with choreoathetoid movements.


Learning-disabled children with deficits in sensory integration as well as choreoathetosis and who received sensory integrative therapy gained more on an eye-hand coordination test than did control children. Using a one-tailed test, levels of significance difference between the mean gain scores of the experimental and control groups were .058 for the more accurate hand and .061 for the less accurate hand. It is not possible to determine whether the therapeutic effect was on the motor or on the sensory integrative aspect of coordination or on both.
