Spring and Summer Groups
The Perceptual Enrichment Program© is a short-term, development-based program that uses perceptual skills to help the child master early cognitive and developmental concepts necessary for problem solving and organizational skills. PEP involves table-top activities, which allow the child to solve increasingly complex perceptual problems. These concepts eventually help develop a solid perceptual understanding that supports thinking and learning activity.
The Perceptual Enrichment Program enhances development in the following areas:
Concentration, focus, and attention
Handwriting and spatial planning
Bilateral motor coordination
Processing and integrated information
Zones of Regulation and The Alert Program© (How Does Your Engine Run) encourage awareness of one’s arousal state and how to use sensory motor strategies to self regulate. These skills enhance the child’s ability to learn, interact socially, work, and play in varied environments.
Handwriting Without Tears© is a multi-sensory handwriting curriculum. It’s designed for children of all ability levels to make handwriting a fun and successful endeavor while promoting the child’s self-confidence.
SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) Feeding Approach© for picky eaters and selective feeders is a sensory based and oral developmental approach to assessing and addressing all the factors involved in feeding difficulties. Many of our therapists have received this training in addition to other feeding specific techniques.
Advanced Listening Programs© that are designed to support sensory processing and modulation by accessing auditory channels.
These programs have been effective in helping:
Therapeutic Listening© is usually structured as a home program using specialized headphones and modulated music on compact discs. Sound vibration stimulates the brain and utilizes the close connection between the ear and voice, language, and emotional and psychological development.
The Integrated Listening System (iLs)© is based on the idea that efficient brain function requires a properly integrated nervous system. The iLs program uses a customized combination of acoustically modified classical music combined with visual, vestibular, and motor exercises. These exercises work to activate the pathways used in the processing of sensory information by providing gentle and specific stimulation. iLs is predominantly used as a home program; however, we can provide the needed equipment and train parents to administer the program to their child in the clinic.
The Safe & Sound ProtocolTM (SSP) is part of the Integrated Listening System (iLs)© that is five day innovative intervention designed to improve an individual's social communication behaviors by reducing hearing sensitivities and improving the ability to process human speech. By calming the behavioral and physiological state, further therapy is enhanced or even accelerated. The SSP is ideal as an introductory therapy for those experiencing high levels of stress, especially related to trauma, autism and anxiety, as well as those with auditory sensitivites.
