Sensory integration therapy

Sensory integration therapy, also known as sensory processing therapy, is a healthcare profession that focuses on helping individuals with sensory processing disorders. Sensory processing refers to the way our nervous system receives, interprets, and responds to sensory information from our environment.

Individuals with sensory processing disorders may have difficulty processing sensory information in a typical way. They may be hypersensitive or hyposensitive to sensory input, and may experience difficulties with sensory integration, modulation, or discrimination.

The goal of sensory integration therapy is to help individuals process sensory information more effectively and efficiently, allowing them to participate in daily activities with greater ease and comfort.

Techniques and Interventions used by Sensory integration therapists

Sensory-based activities

This involves using sensory input, such as touch, movement, or sound, to help individuals regulate their nervous system and improve their ability to process sensory information.

Play-based activities

This involves using play to help individuals engage in activities that challenge their sensory processing abilities, while also providing opportunities for fun and enjoyment.

Environmental modifications

This involves making changes to the individual's environment, such as adjusting lighting or reducing noise, to help them better process sensory information.

Education

This involves providing education and support to individuals and their families to help them understand sensory processing disorders and develop strategies for managing sensory challenges.
