We all process sensory information in slightly different ways. Some of us enjoy loud music, while others prefer quiet spaces. Some prefer moving all day long and others gravitate towards more sedentary lifestyles. When we think about choices in our careers and lifestyles we can see that we have inherently made choices that align with our need to take in or shut out sensory information in order to feel calm, comfortable and engaged. Some children have a hard time understanding sensory information and how to respond to it. This may be a sign of sensory processing disorder. At Great Kids Place we help children explore sensational experiences and discover preferences in sensory processing. This exploration further supports development of motor, social and learning capacities.
Sensory integration is an integral part of our treatment and is used to facilitate change in challenging areas and support strengths in other areas.
