Sensory Integration Therapy 

Sensory integration therapy is utilized by an occupational therapist with the intent to help children with sensory processing issues. Children are exposed to sensory stimulation in a controlled, repetitive way. Then, over time, the brain adapts, and kids can process and react to sensations more efficiently. The therapist will gradually make activities more challenging to encourage further improvement. The idea is that, eventually, the child’s nervous system will respond in a more organized way to sensations and movement.

Common candidates for sensory integration therapy are children and young adults diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, anxiety, PTSD, sensory processing disorders, those who have ADHD, OCD, and/or other developmental and learning delays.
