Sensory Integration Therapy, Sensory Integration Training, Reflex Integration Therapy, Sensory Processing Therapy
Sensory Integration Therapy tries to assist children with sensory processing disorders also known as "sensory integration disorder" by exposing them to sensory input in a controlled, repeated manner. The theory is that the brain will change with time, allowing children to comprehend and respond to stimuli more effectively.
A well-trained Occupational Therapist or OT provides Sensory Integration (SI) Treatment. Occupational Therapist assesses if your kid will benefit from Sensory Integration treatment through a thorough assessment. The OT exposes a kid to sensory stimulation through repeated tasks in traditional SI treatment. OT is a more difficult and complex activity. The concept is that your child's nervous system will respond to sensations and movement via repetition in a more "organized" fashion.
