Sensory Integration Therapy
Sensory integration is the organization of sensory information for ongoing use. It is the ability to receive and process information from all the senses (touch, movement, smell, taste, vision, and hearing), organize or integrate that information within the brain, and then respond in a meaningful way. Sensory integration provides the necessary foundation for more complex learning and behavior, including motor planning ability, attention, adaptive behavior, and academic learning.
A therapy intensive may be recommended for your child in order to maximize the effects of treatment. In a treatment intensive the frequency, intensity, and duration of therapy are increased over a relatively short period of time. Typically, a child is seen for 1 ½ hours in each of 3-4 consecutive days. Research has found this to be an effective and “intensive” model of intervention. Often this is a good choice if a child seems to have plateaued or needs a “jump start.” This is also a good option for clients who have to travel a long distance to the clinic. A home program is given at the end of the intensive with a follow up plan.
