SENSORY INTEGRATION THERAPY:Occupational Therapy for Children, Occupational Therapist in Gurgaon
The SI approach attempts to facilitate the normal development and improve the child’s ability to process and integrate sensory information. Many children with cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions have associated sensory difficulties. SI theory is based on the hypothesis that in order to develop a normal adaptive response, the child must be able to optimally receive, modulate, integrate and process the sensory information. A therapeutic environment is created in which the child gains rich sensory motor experiences and engages the child in challenging play activities in such a way that the child is able to overcome the challenge and adapts to subsequently face more challenging stimulus. The objective of SI approach is not to teach specific skills but to enhance the brain’s capacities to perceive, remember and motor plan.
