Occupational Therapy

Here at Sense ABLE Brain, our Occupational Therapists specialize in the treatment of retained primitive reflexes, sensory processing/integration deficits, sensorimotor deficits, fine motor challenges, coordination difficulties, self-help difficulties, motor limitations, emotional/behavioral control, and more. 

Occupational Therapy begins with a thorough evaluation of your child.  From this, a written evaluation report is developed and reviewed with you.  Then a plan of treatment is created and agreed upon, with a schedule that fits into your life.

Direct treatment is a hands-on approach between the therapist and the child.  Each session typically lasts 1 hr, depending on the child’s tolerance.  

In addition to direct treatment, we are able to offer therapeutic consultation services.  These consults can be provided to parents, teachers, or other caregivers in a child’s life, providing caregivers with the knowledge and tools to make environmental modifications, adaptations, and/or therapeutic interventions in order to help the child become successful in their home, academic, and community environments.

Handwriting

Handwriting difficulties can be detrimental to a child’s academic performance AND their self-esteem. Children who struggle with handwriting early, often develop bad habits that later impact the quality of their work and ability to complete work in a timely manner. Grades suffer, self-esteem decreases, and frustration levels increase. Our “Sense ABLE Handwriting” program is an excellent tool to help a child learn to write appropriately, or to correct their writing so they can improve their writing speed, fluidity, and legibility. If a child is having handwriting difficulties, a Handwriting Evaluation is performed and specific areas of handwriting are targeted during sessions. 

Integrated Listening System (iLs)

Integrated Listening System (iLs) uses air AND bone conduction headphones, along with visual input, to provide a greater range of sensory input to the brain while requiring the child to perform increasingly challenging motor activities. “By simultaneously engaging senses which are neurologically interconnected, we are training the key areas involved in information processing.” (www.integratedlistening.com) Click on the iLs website link or contact us for more information!
