Intensive Therapy: Sensory Integration


    At least 1 in 20 typically-developing children need help paying attention and completing work because their bodies do not process information from their senses the way everyone else does. Classroom noises may distract them, the tag in their shirt may drive them crazy, or the artwork around the room may just be too much. For other children with sensory processing disorder (SPD), they can’t sit still in their chair, they constantly hum, or they bump into everyone in line. These children can learn better and not distract other students when given some tools to help regulate how their brains are registering the sensory information all around them.


    Children with SPD have been shown to benefit from intensive therapy using a sensory integration approach.  GHC models our intensive therapy program after the STAR Center.  Families come and stay nearby while receiving therapy services 5 times per week for 4-6 weeks at our state-of-the-art destination therapy center.  Using a multi-disciplinary approach to address motor coordination, language development, feeding challenges, social skills, and independence with daily living skills, we provide comprehensive support. 

    Our team members are certified as an Advanced Mentored Clinician in SPD by the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation.  The SPD Foundation is lead by Dr. Lucy Jane Miller, the leading researcher in Sensory Processing.  Our director, Robyn Chu, is on the Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation Faculty.  If you would like more information on Sensory Processing Disorder, please contact us or visit http://www.spdfoundation.net.  Call today to schedule a burst of intensive therapy.
