Free text The effects of deprivation and institutionalization is studied in children internationally adopted in the USA. Sensory integration is defined as " the process by which individuals organize and interpret information received through their senses in order to successfully meet environmental challenges". Children from institutions are often deprived of stimulation - from not being picked up, hugged, rocked or allowed to jump and play - and thus are not able to develop through this complex process.
