Sensory intergration and learning disabilities

I have a 1st grader who is having much trouble learning to read.
I have requested the school test him for learning disabilities.  I have always wondered if he had sensory intergration problems. My question is: first can the school's testing pick up SI problems and Is LD associated with SI problems?

Dear Laurel,

The testing performed by the school might investigate the area of sensory integration, provided the testing includes an evaluation by an occupational therapist. Often sensory integration problems are associated with learning disabilities.

sensory intergation is a nuerological disorder where the brain cant process the information of sences(sight,touch,smell,hearing) they may have a hyoersensative system in whuch they would be very sencative to touch, and may not be reall active kids, or they may be hyposensative such as my daughter.  in her case she never stopps going, she has a very high pain tollerance because it takes more stimuli for her to be able to process it.  she also craves spinning, swinging any thing with motion constantally.
