Sensory Processing

Sensory processing is how the nervous system receives, processes, and then responds to information from the senses. Children that have difficulty with processing sensory information may have challenges that impact motor control, attention, under or over responsiveness to specific sensory information, emotional regulation, and/or flexibility in thinking. These specific challenges can further impact  childhood occupations such as self-care, play, social interactions, and/or ability to learn and participate in school, home, or in the community.

Occupational therapy helps children and their families with developing strategies to assist with each child’s unique needs.
