Sensory Integration

Sensory Integration Therapy looks at an individual child’s sensory needs and stimulates those areas of the brain in order to regulate sensory processing and affect a child’s ability to ¬†interact with his or her environment. Oftentimes the modalities used for sensory integration include stimulating the¬†tactile system through touch, vestibular system through swinging/bouncing, or proprioceptive system through “crashing”, joint compression, or weighted vests/blankets.
