Sensory Integration Therapy

We recognize that no two children are alike in their sensory experiences. Our dedicated team of professionals specializes in offering precise, individualized therapy to address challenges related to sensory integration. We embark on a journey to understand the unique sensory systems of each child and construct highly personalized treatment plans aimed at fostering not just adaptation, but genuine flourishing.

Our journey begins with…

a meticulous assessment, delving deep into the intricacies of sensory systems. We offer a range of age-specific tests, acknowledging the diversity of sensory experiences among children. 

Tailoring Sensory Processing Therapy for Every Child’s Unique Needs

No detail is too small; we recognize that the vestibular, proprioceptive, and tactile systems are highly nuanced and can profoundly impact a child’s behavior and development.


Vestibular System

Navigating Movement and Balance

The vestibular system, comprised of the intricate semicircular canals in the inner ear, registers movement in various planes. Challenges in this area can manifest in behaviors such as:

  • Experiencing car sickness
  • Sitting down when crossing a door threshold
  • Constantly seeking or avoiding swinging activities
  • Poor balance
  • Difficulty changing head position (e.g., washing hair) or maintaining it
  • Fear of heights or climbing

Proprioceptive System

Nurturing Strength and Coordination

The proprioceptive system, housed within our muscles, allows us to move with purpose. Issues in this area might result in the behaviors of your child like:

  • Displays weakness and fatigue easily
  • Intentionally bumps and crashes into objects
  • Stomps feet on the ground
  • Constantly chews on items
  • Holds pencil either too tightly or too lightly, resulting in messy written work
  • Engages in kicking, banging, hitting, or biting behaviors
  • Stabilizes against furniture or adults
  • Exhibits clumsiness and frequently drops objects
  • Locks joints to maintain posture

Tactile System

Navigating the World Through Touch

The tactile system, the body’s first line of communication with the environment, processes sensations related to touch, pressure, temperature, and pain. Challenges here might lead:

  • Avoids showing affection, such as hugs
  • Struggles with standing in line
  • Dislikes holding objects
  • Explores using mouth rather than hands
  • Touches people or objects excessively
  • Reacts aggressively when touched by others
  • Has sensitivities to clothing
  • Displays picky eating habits
  • Tends to be a loner, isolating from others
  • Resists change
  • Either overreacts to pain or doesn’t notice injuries
