Sensory processing issues can significantly impact a child’s ability to navigate daily activities. To improve a child’s sensory processing skills, pediatric occupational therapists often use sensory integration strategies.
At CST Academy, we structure our daily routines to meet the individual needs of each child, which often include sensory integration activities guided by pediatric occupational therapists. By introducing sensory input in an intentional and consistent way, a child’s nervous system will be able to process sensory input more effectively. Sensory integration can be effective for children who are hypersensitive or hyposensitive to sensory input.
