Sensory Support for All Ages and Abilities
Serving Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region in person, virtual consulting services available globally
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
Sensory solutions based on a foundation in occupational therapy
Cascadia Therapy Services is a consulting and therapy business run by an occupational therapist for individuals and companies that are seeking support for sensory processing challenges.
Owned and operated by Diane Knoll, OTR/L, CTS offers services to clients in Seattle and the Greater Puget Sound area. Services include sensory processing evaluation and reports, recommendations for home/business adaptations and modifications, staff/caregiver trainings, and individually tailored sensory diets to help clients successfully navigate sensory challenges throughout their daily routines. We also provide a specialized handwriting improvement service based on the effective Size Matters Handwriting Program.
Who We Work With
We specialize in sensory solutions for business and individuals with an understanding that sensory issues exist across the life span.
Consultation for care providers: Whether you are an intermediate care facility, assisted living facility, or independent caregiver, we are able to help support your clients that struggle with sensory processing skills.
Private Clients: CTA works with clients in their home of community. We work on skills for processing or environmental modifications. The interventions are so much easier to incorporate into daily life because we implement them in your real-life setting. Private clients can be seen for sensory support or our handwriting program.
Consultation for local businesses: We provide consultation services to make organizations more “sensory friendly.” Whether it is setting up a sensory room or adjusting elements of the workspace, we can provide guidance and recommendations. This not only benefits those sensory differences but also increases mood and well-being for all staff and guests.
Cascadia Therapy Services does not contract with, or bill insurance. This approach allows CTS to focus on wellness and health promotion versus providing services within the traditional model of disease and illness. Please see Rates for further information.
