Sensory Processing and Neuromotor Performance
We continually take in and integrate sensory information that arises from our environment and from within our bodies. Many children experience differences in the way with which they respond to, interpret, and use this information. Motor clumsiness, over- or under-responsivity to sensations, poor regulation of activity level, and emotionality are just some of the ways in which differences might manifest. Sensory integration therapy utilizing swings and other traditional equipment is provided. Sensory processing interventions such as the use of deep pressure or offering the child “sensory retreat” from their world are also incorporated. Equal emphasis is placed on understanding and treating sensory modulation, sensory discrimination, motor based outcomes and self-regulation.
