Categorizing Information From Your Enviroment
Sensory Integration refers to the way that the brain categorizes information from the environment. Some children can be oversensitive to certain environmental stimuli leading to an unusual response such as a light touch being perceived as painful. Others can be under-sensitive to certain environmental stimuli also leading to an unusual reaction such as not feeling the pain of a broken bone. These are just two examples of Sensory Processing Disorder, SPD. SPD can impact multiple aspects of your child’s life such as social interactions and their ability to learn at school.
Treatments based on individual needs include:
- A broad spectrum of solutions from our sensory gym (link) in the clinic to home based approaches.
- Sensory Diet- This is a group of activities that are scheduled throughout your child’s day to assist with their specific sensory needs.
