Our Treatment Philosophy

Every child is a special gift and has unique ways of learning and teaching us.
A child’s strengths and interests provide the key to helping them succeed in their daily occupation: that of living, learning and playing.

When treating Sensory Processing Disorder, our goals are threefold:

  • Provide parents a better understanding of their child.  Parents are a key part of our therapeutic approach, and we welcome their full involvement.  This is how we help get your child in gear. 
  • Train the child’s nervous system to improve their sensory processing as well as teach coping strategies.
  • Work with parents, educators, and other therapists on ways to change the environment to allow better functioning for the child.
