The Alert Program®The Alert Program® or How Does Your Engine Run? is an innovative program that supports children, teachers, parents, and therapists to choose appropriate strategies to change or maintain states of alertness. The program teaches children to become more aware of their own bodies and sensory modulation.
Provides precise movement and balance input to all five vestibular receptors for improved sensory processing. This program integrates a combination of vestibular, auditory, and visual input providing a strong sensory integrative foundation.
The Bio-Tuning® System gives you the ability to find the fundamental frequency of an individual, create custom binaural beats, monitor the autonomic nervous system response, and create a customized composition for that individual. This program is then fine tuned and recorded to create a digital file for a wav player or CD for an individual’s home program. Note: This program is an adjunct therapy service which is not covered under occupational therapy requiring private pay.
A gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the body and the craniosacral system (made up of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord). Releasing restrictions in the soft tissue (muscle, fascia, etc) helps allow the body return to homeostasis.
The Zones curriculum provides strategies to teach students to become more aware of, and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses, managing their sensory needs, and improving their ability to problem solve conflicts.
An evidence-based auditory intervention designed to support individuals with difficulties in sensory processing, listening, attention and communication. Note: This program has additional equipment costs that are not typically covered by most insurance carriers, requiring
Telehealth occupational therapy services are available via online computer access for ongoing treatment. This option has been beneficial to families who are unable to commute long distances for direct therapy services. Note: Initial evaluation needs to be completed in person at the clinic prior to starting remote treatment.
Describe a situation, skill, or concept in terms of relevant social cues, perspectives, and common responses to share accurate social information with children ranging from typical development to autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
Sensory Enrichment Therapy (SET) was developed by Mendability to help overwhelmed brains to nurture their self-repair mechanisms. This program is designed as an evidence-based, clinically validated therapy that parents have reported improvements in the areas of attention span, behavior, reading comprehension, math, sensory issues, problem-solving, speech development, fine and gross motor, and social skills. Note: This program is an adjunct therapy service which is not covered under occupational therapy requiring private pay.
This curriculum draws from years of innovation and research to provide developmentally appropriate, multisensory tools and strategies for your classroom. The program follows research that demonstrates children learn more effectively by actively doing, with materials that address all styles of learning.
A framework for building healthy foundations for social, emotional and intellectual capacities tailored to the unique challenges and strengths of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other developmental challenges.
In depth developmental testing is available utilizing a variety of standardized tests including the Beery-VMI, BOT-2, DASH, Degangi-Berk, DTVP-A, DTVP-3, GOAL, Greenspan Social Emotional Growth Chart, Jaw Assessment, MAP, M-FUN, Oral Motor/Feeding Rating Scale, PDMS-2, PEDI, REAL, Sensory Profile 2, Shore Handwriting Screening, SIPT, THS-R, and the TVPS-3. Please ask your therapist for details regarding testing chosen for your child.
Sequential-Oral-Sensory (SOS) Approach to Feeding Program is used for assessing and treating children with feeding and weight/growth difficulties. The treatment component of the program utilizes these typical developmental steps toward feeding to create a systematic desensitization hierarchy of skills/behaviors necessary for children to progress with eating various textures, and with growing at an appropriate rate for them.
Occupational therapy using a sensory integration approach typically takes place in a sensory-rich environment where the therapist guides the child through fun activities that are subtly structures to challenge the child while allowing them to be successful.
