We provide paediatric therapy services, specialising in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment sensory processing disorders (SPD).
We offer private sensory integration therapy using sensory-integration techniques rich in vestibular, proprioceptive, and tactile inputs areas where many children with neurological issues have deficits. The approach encourages children’s nervous systems to process and integrate sensory input in organised and meaningful ways. As their adaptive responses provide feedback, their nervous systems mature and organise at increasingly higher levels.
Ultimately, the children can interact with and adapt to their environment more successfully.
