All of us are different. Our sensory systems allow us to interact with ourselves and our world. A better understanding of our unique sensory profile can assist in showing you why you or your child may react to some things in different ways. These differences may result in both benefits and difficulties.
We can design sensory programs and other strategies that help you reduce or increase sensory inputs and educate families to understand how sensory preferences can effect relationships, attachment and sustained performance in activities.
Our Occupational Therapist (OT) has over 15 years of experience in looking at the sensory system issues and uses the following tools amongst others:
Southern Californian Sensory Integration Certified.
Advanced training in use of Sensory Profiles- infant, child, adolescent.
