SENSORY PROCESSING OVERVIEWS

This series is scheduled throughout the year in an effort to help empower parents of children with a Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) as well as adults with a SPD themselves. We strongly believe that progress goes hand in hand with the more you know and understand.

These two classes focus on:

        • making sense of a Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD) and what, behaviorally, symptoms can look like
        • unveiling how life style choices can directly impact a Sensory Processing
        • highlighting ways to improve Sensory Processing both with the help of related therapies and/or on your own

Sensory Processing is one of the primary functions of the brain where by sensory input is  received, interpreted, and utilized so that we may successfully interact with others and our environment. It is essential for survival and for enabling us to achieve a more complete and enriched life. Better understanding Sensory Processing can benefit us all.

Your participation in these classes serves multiple functions to include: 

  • increasing your base knowledge of Sensory Processing as it pertains to your child, yourself, your professional needs, and life in general;
  • helping guide you as to what you can do outside of the therapy setting both under the guidance of a therapist and/or on your own;
  • introducing you to our philosophy and expectations prior to entering a more involved relationship with us whether as a 1 on 1 client or as a recipient of our consultative services;
  • demonstrating your willingness to be an involved partner with us.

We pride ourselves in enhancing quality of life by improving Sensory Processing. The degree and speed of progress is expedited when a team effort is available. Your participation in the two class series helps to assure us that we have shared with you the main principles of what we need you to know as a crucial member of our team. This “common ground” further enables us to explore and discuss, on a “higher level”, relative circumstances to your individual circumstances. Don’t be surprised if these classes additionally offer insight as to what you can do to make positive changes for your entire family! 

SENSORY PROCESSING 1ST CLASS INCLUDES:

  • an introduction to the basics of Sensory Processing;
  • the neurology of behavior;
  • definition of SPD and examples of physical, cognitive and/or social-emotional challenges that often reflect a Sensory Processing Disorder
  • an introduction as what you can try on your own to support Sensory Processing and achieve desired results.

SENSORY PROCESSING 2ND CLASS INCLUDES:

  • goes deeper into understanding the neurology of how life style choices can influence Sensory Processing
  • offers time to reflect on what variable(s) is/are most relative to your circumstances
  • offers general ideas for you to consider implementing on your own or to explore with specialists
  • discusses the power of your own “therapeutic use of self” in supporting improved Sensory Processing outcomes in others

 

"These classes helped our entire family!" Julie W., daughter, age 3, Atlanta, read Overview Testimonials here

 

Private Consultations

are available for those who have attended the overview series. The focus will be on reviewing how current routine “activities of daily living” may be supporting or interfering with challenges that you have identified. Recommendations based on what is understood by your report and what is being seen during the session will be made in an attempt to support improved Sensory Processing.  To help evaluate where challenges may be coming from, an opportunity will be available, with therapist supervision, to use relative equipment in the clinic. This consolation service is intended to provide cursory impressions only of how Sensory Processing challenges may or may not be occurring with suggestions of areas that may prove beneficial for you to explore. Consultation sessions are offered on a limited (1 to 5) basis and are not intended to take the place of a more comprehensive evaluation as would be appropriate for determining a Sensory Processing Disorder.
