About Sensory Processing/Integration

"Sensory integration is the ability to organize sensory information for use... that enables man to interact effectively with the environment" (Ayers)
We constantly receive sensory information (vision, auditory, tactile etc.), and then the brain interprets it and turns it into appropriate motor and behavioral responses.

When the information is not appropriately perceived or organized, it causes us movement, behavioral and functional difficulties. Please refer to Sings of SPD.

Sensory Integration/Processing Therapy

Sensory Integration/Processing Therapy helps a child appropriately process sensory messages for use. The therapy is provided by a qualified therapist who has completed the certified courses and training. A session of sensory processing takes place at a fun and safe sensory gym which is equipped with swings, a trampoline, monkey bars, a climbing wall, slides, a ball pit, a zip line, and big soft blocks. A child actively moves and explores a sensory rich environment to feel the just-right amount of sensation he/she needs.
