Sensory Integration Therapy (SI) helps balance the body's sensory input, enhancing your child's developmental foundation, motor skills, coordination, cognitive ability, behavioral control and social skills.

What is Sensory Integration?

Children with sensory integration challenges may have problems with coordination, gross and fine motor skills, learning differences, social interactions, and over or underdeveloped sensitivities to movement, touch, sound, sight, taste, smell, etc.

A gap in the developmental process can push a child into the range of disability. Sensory Integration Therapy can help correct these challenges and promote normal developmental growth and progress.

IPT's degreed and licensed Physical and Occupational Therapists have advanced certifications in Sensory Integration and use clinically-proven, sensory motor focused techniques to enhance all aspects of your child's development.

“This therapy is life changing for children diagnosed with Sensory Integration Dysfunction.” -- Katherine Lunde, Educational consultant

Background and Benefits

Sensory Integration theory and treatment were developed by developmental psychologist and occupational therapist Dr. A. Jean Ayres in the 1950’s. Dr. Ayres believed that a normal functioning sensory system was essential to motor development, learning, and behavior. She developed the Sensory Integration Praxis Test (SIPT), which was used to conduct studies to understand patterns of sensory integration problems.

Today, Sensory Integration Therapy is widely recommended to help promote learning, behavior and development. IPT's Physical and Occupational Therapists work together to develop a customized treatment plan of sensory-based activities that target motor development, and the successful integration of sensory systems throughout the nervous system.

If you think your child might be showing signs of sensory motor challenges or a developmental “gap”, please call us to schedule an evaluation. The earlier the challenge is identified and treated, the faster and more effective the treatment will be for your child.

“Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained, and delighted.” -- Dr. Seuss
