Sensory Integration

When information from the senses cannot be interpreted correctly by the brain, behaviors may result that can be baffling to everyone involved. If there is over sensitivity to the sensory input, the person may respond negatively to any physical contact, become fearful during movement, and/or avoid routine activities. Our staff, at Developing Connections Inc., are trained to understand and address problems that correlate to sensory processing. Activities are planned with the “just the right challenge” to enhance the individual's ability to accurately interpret and respond to sensory input. The therapist builds on the client's strengths while motivating him or her to participate in activities that organize sensory input.
