Sensory Integration Therapy Modesto CA
It’s not always easy to find qualified sensory integration therapy in the Modesto CA area, but thankfully the team here at Therapeutic Playground is proud to offer a variety of programs that help children living with Sensory Processing Disorder. This disorder, also referred to as SPD, is very often underdiagnosed by therapists who aren’t trained in spotting the signs. When a diagnosis is received, it’s often a relief for the child and parents alike. Therapy for Sensory Processing Disorder may include:
What do these terms mean, exactly? Every therapeutic center is different in their approach. At Therapeutic Playground, we’ve created an enriching space with a sensory gym that allows children a place to explore and learn how to interact in a safe, gently challenging environment. Our gym is custom-designed and includes climbing walls, soft floors, a zip line, and other fun elements that give children with SPD a place to play and build confidence. Our approach to Sensory Integration Therapy at our Modesto location includes monitored play, games, and socialization with peers. We work with children in one-on-one sessions or group sessions, and we have open play times available on our schedule.
Parents should be involved in their child’s sensory development every step of the way. This helps ensure success for everyone! When we take on clients, we meet with the family for an assessment to determine which therapy for Sensory Processing Disorder will work best for the individual child. Some children with SPD have a difficult time with physical stimulation and find themselves overwhelmed by items as simple as their own clothing, while others feel the need for constant stimulation, which often manifests as “wild” behavior or hyperactivity. With help and instructor-led activities, children can learn to better understand their disorder and improve their behavioral management and social skills.
Therapeutic Playground is led and staffed by experienced professionals in the fields of occupational therapy, Special Education, and behavioral therapy.
