Often when parents walk into our clinic area, they are expecting an “exercise” physical treatment “no pain-no gain” environment. That may work for adults, but not for kids! Watch our sessions in action below!
We strive for the “just right challenge” where your child feels like they are just playing and having fun but they are enhancing development, coordination, and normalizing their neurologic pathways.
Children are motivated by exploration and play. Therefore, the sensory integration treatment approach entails the use of vestibular (movement), proprioceptive (input to muscles and joints to increase body awareness), and tactile-based therapeutic activities that are combined in a playful context to motivate the child to make meaningful adaptive responses to “just-right” therapeutic challenges presented by the therapist. Therapeutic goals are disguised by the artful therapist as play (e.g “Ninja Warrier Obstacle Course), thus obtaining the child’s optimal engagement.
In our clinic, you will see about 1800 square feet of cushioned floor space with an amazing array of ropes, therapeutic suspended equipment, tunnels, crash pillows, balls and other child-oriented activities. However, you will also see tables, chairs, and shelves filled with cognitive, perceptual, fine motor, handwriting, and self-care activities. We also offer traditional Occupational Therapy work in these intervention areas, often in a developmental sequence which follows sensory-motor preparation.
Working together, soon, your family will move from a mode of surviving to thriving.
