Sensory therapy for children with motor dysfunction (Spastic dysplegia)

let's know about the spastic diplegia.

Primarily it is defined as spastic cerebral paralysis that the result of an affectation in the motor cortex in the cortical sensorimotor areas. is identified as diplegia because the four extremities are affected, with the lower ones predominating. The spasticity varies according to the affectation in the central nervous system, it is said that it is the resistance to the mobilization of the member in its wide articulation and speed.

Children with motor disorder are affected in the vestibular system and proprioceptive implies inadequate postures in which they adapt easily.

Sensory therapy is an alternative to stimulate the integration of the child with problems in the central nervous system, It can be useful for children with autism, hyperactivity and motor problems. It strengthens the proper development of the sensory system that is integrated by the visual, tactile, auditory, proprioceptive and vestibular.

through a prior evaluation the therapist identifies the patient's abilities, to carry out the corresponding activities according to the needs of the child.


It is based on exposing the child to different activities according to their pathology, in the case of children with spacty dysplegia the child learns to be aware of the movements of his body and control it at different speeds.

The proprioception

is the one that is in charge of informing us the position of our body without seeing it. Also through the proprioceptive system we know how to move properly in an environment full of obstacles without accidents, informs us how far we are from another person, how much force we exercise when opening a bottle or how fast we must move in certain activities.

If the proper system is not developed correctly, we are not aware of the movements to be made with our body, which would imply a mismatch to everyday activities.


The vestibular system is responsible for maintaining balance, coordinates our movements, provides stability to any sudden change of movement and speed, closely linked to the body's motor responses


One of the activities to be carried out to improve its balance is to expose it to maintain stability in the face of different support while doing different activities

Perform manual oculo coordination taking into account its movement and speed

The constant swaying of your body stimulates your vestibular system and learns to feel safe against various movements

When children have some difficulty to integrate properly to daily activities, it is important to encourage them to achieve their greatest possible development as adults, having good specialists is essential to reach their maximum potential



Interesante publicación @acostaana, la verdad desconocía esta dolencia y las terapias necesarias para sobrellevarla.

Es importante comprender que cada ser humano, es importante sin importar su condición fisica, por lo que este tipo de publicaciones nos ayuda no solo a comprender sino a valorar aún mas a los niños que deben sobreponerse a estas dolencias.

Realmente me encantaria poder informar más acerca de la condición de mi hijo y poder a ayudar de alguna manera a los padrs que pasan por la misma situación. Seguiré en la medida posible publicar más sobre la diplegia espastica. Si quieres pasar por mi publicacion de algunas semana atrás, para que sepas algunos signos como detectar la condición a temprana edad @karupanocitizen
