DURING THE SENSORY-BASED OT SESSION, therapist and child interact in our specialized sensory gym, furnished with toys, ropes, swings, and other equipment used to foster appropriate responses to sensation, in an active and meaningful way. Although therapy sessions appear to be playtime, they are subtly structured so that your child is challenged but always successful in completing each activity. The emphasis of these sessions is on developing appropriate responses to sensation and making them automatic, so that daily activities can be successfully performed. By identifying the underlying problems within specific sensory systems we are then able to customize a curriculum that helps your child develop sensory processing to successfully meet every day challenges.
