Hi Im new to the board my son has been unofficialy diagnosed with hypotonia, dyspraxia and and sensory integration dysfunction. I was wondering if anyone had info on the causes of sensory integration dysfunction?

Thanks in advance

Welcome Nicole,

I have tried to figure out myself how or why my son got the SI, and hypotonia, or apraxia...I sent out a poll and their was no set pattern I could find...

I just keep plodding along and seeing if we can get funding for research, I would love to get in touch with one of these stars and tell them about the problems we have with our children...

Oprah is going to do a show on sensory integration I think in August, I sent in the my sons story and picture to an OT who is sending these to their producers...

So maybe we will get some recognition for the disorder...

Oh wow, if you find out when that Oprah show is could you please let us know? I'd be very interested in seeing it and letting my family see it too.
