Sensory Motor Planning

Problems with motor planning may present as slowness in comprehending directions, hesitancy when confronted with new tasks or poor organisation of the body.


Sensory motor is an area which covers your senses and the movement responses to them.

Senses are:

  • Touch

  • Joint position sense

  • Body position in space

  • Awareness of movement

  • Vision Hearing Taste and

  • Smell.

Deficiencies in these areas can affect the way we move and how we function in the classroom. For example, poor eye movement can result in reduced ability to track along a line to read or copying from the blackboard while poor awareness in joints can lead to jerky less controlled movements or reduction of balance and less automatic movements.
