Our sensory system is very important! It is how we take in all the information about the world. We have to process this information correctly to be able function properly in our daily tasks and environments.
However, not everyone processes sensory information the same way. Whether it is due to differences in individual people or related to a specific diagnosis, it is important to make sure we account for the sensory system when meeting human needs.
Many people would be able to function much better with a little attention to sensory processing. This is where we come in, we provide sensory solutions to improve daily life.
Because sensory issues are diverse and present in all age groups, our practice applies our knowledge to address some of the following problems:
- Setting up sensory friendly spaces
- Helping businesses develop routine and accommodations from a sensory perspective
- Improve quality of life through sensory enrichment programs
- Sensory solutions to decrease problematic behaviors
- Illegible or time consuming handwriting
