Sensory Integration Therapy
Jigsaw Occupational Therapy are able to provide direct one-to-one sensory integration therapy at our specialised sensory integration therapy room in Sussex.
Sensory integration therapy is designed to help children and young people develop their sensory processing abilities and to develop strategies to help them cope. The therapy is based on the idea that some people struggle to receive, process and make sense of information provided by the senses. For example, some children and young people are hyper-sensitive (over-sensitive) to some things such as loud noises but hypo-sensitive (under-sensitive) to other things such as pain.
We assess a child and/or young persons sensory difficulties and then develop a personalised treatment programme in which we use the most appropriate techniques and tools to overcome those difficulties.
Sensory integration therapy can involve a combination of different elements such as wearing a weighted vest, using sensory integration swings, riding a scooter board, sitting on a bouncy ball, experiencing 'crash and bump' and other similar activities.
Our therapists are all highly skilled and experienced with this form of intervention. Prior to any therapy we will present clear outcomes and objectives for the intervention, which will be reviewed on a regular basis.
