Sensory Integration Therapy Services
Sensory integration is the ability to capture information through the senses and meaningfully process that data in the mind. Some children need sensory integration therapy because they have a dysfunctional sensory integration system, where one or more of the senses overreact or under react to environmental stimuli. Standard therapy usually focuses on the following areas: (i) tactile (sense of touch), (ii) vestibular (sense of movement), and (iii) proprioceptive (sense of body position). The typical goal of sensory integration therapy is to help the child re-organize or re-process sensory information in order to have a more accurate response to external stimuli.
