Autistic young children often face critical adversity organizing their sensory insights and often self-destructive behaviors or activities that are seen to be senseless is the result. Autistic persons occasionally will not see their own physicality and resort to these behaviors to “feel” something. For example, some Autistic young children may bang their head against a wall repeatedly or rotate in circles. Others have been renowned to self-damage or smash into objects. These behaviors are the direct outcome of sensory integration impairment.

These grades vary from gentle to critical and can either manifest in a need of sensitivity to the natural environment or an unchanging state of over-sensitivity.
