Sensory therapy may be helpful if your child struggles in the following areas:
- Visual input – Being sensitive to bright lights, distracted by movements or with spatial relationships.
- Response to noise – Bothered by loud sounds or makes extra noises
- Movement and balance – In constant motion or afraid of being off the ground.
- Self – feedback on how the body uses all of the stimulation coming from the environment.
- Playing too forcefully or with not enough force.
- Not being coordinated or using smooth moves to complete tasks or movements.
Our therapists have trained using two specialized programs:
The first uses balance, auditory processing, visual tracking through exercises. This helps develop hand-eye coordination, visual tracking skills and crossing the mid-line.
The second increases attention in concentration, relationship and communication, memory and organizational skills. The goal is to improve reading, writing, language, and numerical skills.
