Sensory Integration

Sensory Integration evaluation includes looking at a child’s sensory processing abilities as they relate to discrimination of sensory information, sensory modulation and sensory-motor skills. These processes help to identify and clarify a child’s sensory preferences, learning style, and self-regulation abilities.

CFC therapists often develop an individualized “sensory diet” for each child which could include a variety of motor activities (swinging, bouncing, dancing, yoga, etc…), tactile activities (messy activities, shaving cream, cooking, gardening, etc…), self-regulation activities (yoga exercises,  deep breathing, “Brain Gym” exercises, etc…) and general sensory activities (music, sports, gymnastics, etc…) designed to increase alertness and arousal level and prepare the nervous system for learning, emotional regulation and managing behavior.
