Individual Therapy Sessions
Individual sessions with you and your child are provided on a weekly basis and may occur one to five times a week. Taking into consideration your child’s sensory needs, a variety of activities will be used to address:
Learning “how we feel, why, and what we can do about it,” is an awareness strategy that is taught and emphasized throughout all activities. By attending the sessions with the child, parents and the child learn how to figure out what sensory input is "organizing" and what input is "disorganizing." First-hand experience with “heat of the moment” responses during the sessions enables parents to better understand and address challenging responses at home.
Small Group Therapy Sessions
A group setting inherently involves a higher level of sensory processing and more complex social and emotional skill development. Our small groups are formed throughout the year when more than one child specifically needs support in an area shared by other children. Scheduling is dependent on the availability of the participants and therapists. Be sure and let us know if this focused support is an area of need for your child so we can determine if a group can be formed
Small groups often organically form after our larger Sensory-Social Intensive in June. Consider making our summer program a priority for refining social-emotional skills needed for lasting relationships.
Limited Consultations Following Parents First Series
Limited consultations are available for families who have attended Parents First but cannot attend regular sessions each week. Bring your child for a 1 to 1.5 hour session. We will watch your child's exploration of the equipment in our clinic and evaluate their skills and what appears to be neurologically organizing vs. disorganizing. Time will include hearing about specific sensory based challenges you have identified and what has worked and not worked in your effort to support desired outcomes at home. Recommendations may be made during your session as to how you can create your own supportive inside and/or outside sensory environment(s). This service is offered on a limited basis (not to exceed 5 sessions). Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a formal evaluation or give a written report at the end of these consultations.
Parent and Teacher Support
When a parent is able to do at home what is being worked on during the therapy session, the child feels better understood and supported as he or she practices new physical skills and emotional responses to negative feelings or arousal challenges.
