Sensory Integration Therapy

Sensory integration therapy is a type of occupational therapy that is designed to help people with sensory processing issues improve their ability to process and respond to sensory information. Sensory processing refers to the way the nervous system receives messages from the senses and turns them into appropriate motor and behavioral responses.

Here’s how sensory integration therapy works:

  1. Assessment: The therapist evaluates the individual’s sensory processing abilities through observation and standardized assessments. This helps identify specific sensory challenges and how they affect daily activities.

  2. Individualized Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, the therapist develops a personalized treatment plan that includes activities and exercises to address the individual’s sensory processing difficulties. The goal is to help the individual better regulate their responses to sensory input.

  3. Sensory Activities: Therapy sessions often involve a variety of sensory-rich activities designed to stimulate or calm the senses, depending on the individual’s needs. These activities may include swinging, bouncing on therapy balls, playing in sensory bins, or engaging in tactile experiences.

  4. Gradual Exposure: The therapist gradually introduces sensory experiences that may be challenging for the individual, helping them become more comfortable with different types of sensory input over time.

  5. Environmental Modifications: The therapist may recommend modifications to the individual’s environment to make it more sensory-friendly and supportive of their needs. This could include changes to lighting, noise levels, or the use of sensory tools and equipment.

  6. Home Program: The therapist may provide the individual and their family with a home program consisting of activities and strategies to continue progress outside of therapy sessions.

Sensory integration therapy is often used to help children with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and other developmental or neurological conditions. However, it can also be beneficial for adults who experience sensory processing difficulties. The goal of sensory integration therapy is to improve the individual’s ability to participate in daily activities and enhance their overall quality of life.
