    Abstract

    The thesis “The influence of sensory integration dysfunction on a child’s abilities in the fields of speech, behavior, and learning” is made up of a theoretical and an empirical part. In the theoretical part, we introduced the sensory integration theory developed by A. Jean Ayres, as well as the sensory integration dysfunction. Sensory integration dysfunction is a state that affects at least one in twenty children by influencing their abilities to speak, their behavior and learning abilities. We introduced the development of a child and the development of speech skills with a preschool child in a more detailed manner. Thereafter, we defined sensory integration and a child’s functioning in the fields of speech, learning, and behavior. In the empirical part, we tried to analyze by means of a questionnaire how a sensory integration dysfunction affects a child’s functioning. We also tried to establish if the sensory integration dysfunction “hypersensitivity in the tactile and hypersensitivity in the vestibular field” is more frequent with children with difficulties in the fields of behavior, learning and speech. The research included children from grades one through three of elementary school. The results of the research show that children with a sensory integration dysfunction are more frequently affected with difficulties in the fields of speech, behavior, and learning.
