With our sensory explorer program at Great Kids we impact your child’s ability to learn and participate in school. Jean Ayres, the founder of Sensory Integration, found connections between sensory challenges and learning challenges. We have since found that by treating underlying sensory challenges we can enhance a child’s ability to learn – improving reading, writing, and general academics.
Many early sensory and motor experiences also support the development of our spatial awareness. This awareness supports our development globally – in relationships, social skills, academics, and self care to name a few. Great Kids Place therapists have worked with developmental optometrists and are extensively trained in visual spatial development. Both structured and play-based activities are infused into treatment to strengthen this important foundational capacity.
