Could you benefit?
Are you an adolescent or adult that has either received support for sensory processing difficulties when you were younger? Or maybe as you read through the website, many of the things you struggle with seem similar to those of someone with a sensory processing difficulties? Maybe you have a learning disability or ADHD but never received occupational therapy for sensory-based difficulties. If you think that you may be living with sensory processing issues that are impacting your ability to reach your potential as well as participate in activities and/or social experiences that are important to you, we can work with you to find the right combination of strategies and exercises to help you feel empowered and more in control of your body and environment.
Consists of client interview along evaluation of sensory processing, visual, and motor abilities tailored to the specific concerns of each client. This allows us to clearly determine your unique pattern of sensory processing abilities and create a customized plan to target you areas of concern. Evaluation of eating and tolerance to food textures also available for adults and adolescents with restrictive eating patterns. Program planning and home exercises will be created in a collaborative manner with respect to your schedule and what is realistic for your lifestyle.
In addition to evaluation and treatment, we offer services on a consulting basis to create/update home program supports that will be carried out either by you as an individual or by family and caregivers. Updates/follow up visits are scheduled approximately every 6 weeks to update the program, provide additional training, and optimize the plan of care. We often use our Body Activated Learning FrameworkTM in designing programming along with any specialized intervention protocols necessary to address tactile and/or defensiveness.
Individuals in Supported Living
We also provide consultative visits in collaboration with supportive living facilities for residents with special needs who require additional sensory supports and interventions due to difficulties with self-regulation, completion of daily routines, and engagement in functional supportive leisure activities. Clients may present diagnoses such as Autism, mental retardation, severe developmental delays, and Down Syndrome
Individuals who exhibit anxiety and discomfort that may be related to underlying sensory processing difficulties are encouraged to seek evaluation and support to improve their quality of life. Intervention may consist of weekly or brief clinic-based intervention as indicated to intensively target specific complaints such as tolerance of movement, tactile hypersensitivity, and performance of daily activities related to deficits in sensory processing. Programming is designed to support participation in life roles as well as develop independence. Direct treatment is suggested for clients who would benefit more from being in a clinic environment initially before continuing with home programming.
