Play is a large part of therapy
Play will incorporate the sensory receptors that require further development. Play may be child directed with the use of therapeutic tools appropriate for that child’s development.
Therapeutic tools may include:
swings, scooters, inner tubes, lycra, spinning, ropes, bungee, therapy balls, and climbing apparatuses for developing core and body receptors; headphones for auditory and spatial receptors; puzzles for visual receptors; and mouth toys for taste, oral and postural receptors.
We work to develop strong core muscles:
Each body part plays a key role in triggering the brain for higher learning concepts.
To perform well in an educational environment, kids need to strengthen their motor skills and postural support to manipulate a writing instrument, control their eye movement to track words on a page, and calm their bodies so they can attend and focus on the instructions a teacher is giving.
We work to improve sensory processing:
Sensory processing is the body’s ability to accurately register, modulate, regulate, and interpret input received from the environment through receptors in the skin, joints, muscles, inner ear, eyes, nose, and mouth.
Our brain interprets the new stimulus and then the body reacts to the stimulus accordingly through motor or behavioral responses.
Sensory receptors include: touch, sight, sound, movement, body position, taste, smell... all of our senses.
Sense of body movement is received in the vestibular system, and sense of body position is received by proprioception through joints and muscles.
