Upper Freehold Township Sensory Motor Integration
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
New Jersey Occupational Therapy for Kids with Individual Differences & Sensory Needs
We believe that building a strong relationship with your child is the first step in the therapeutic process, and that your child should have fun & enjoy therapy. We use a combination of evidence-based interventions including sensory integration, DIR/Floortime, and parent-coaching.
We encourage parents and caregivers to be involved in sessions in order to learn a sensory lifestyle, not just a scripted sensory diet.
Family-Centered, Kid-Driven, Therapist-Led:
Follow a child’s lead, entering her world to join in play
Challenge him to be creative and spontaneous
Expand her actions and interactions to include sensation, emotion, and motor skills
Coach parents to engage, attune, and have fun!
At Empowered Learning Transformation Centers, occupational therapy goals are set with caregivers and therapists as a team. These goals are functional, and individual to each family’s current needs. We begin with a comprehensive evaluation session and meet with parents to review findings prior to the beginning of therapy sessions.
Based on Empowered Learning Transformation Centers we use relationship-based methods to ensure that your child feels supported, while being continually challenged to progress in goal-focused areas.
We believe strongly that parent involvement is the key to success in therapy. While therapists may require some one-on-one time to develop a strong relationship with your child, we encourage parents to be involved in the process. Research indicates that rather than teaching a scripted sensory diet, parents will be more successful in supporting children when they have a deep understanding of how sensory processing challenges impact function, as well as how sensory strategies can be used as supports within different environments and contexts. For this reason, we recommend regular parent meetings, where parents and therapists can collaborate to support progress outside of therapy.
