Sensory Processing at Spaulding Outpatient Center for Children Salem
Sensory processing refers to how an individual takes in sensory information from their environment, organizes that information, and plans/executes a skilled and purposeful response. Challenges in this complex system can present as difficulties in organization or coordination. A disorder of sensory processing may shape a child’s behavior and impact their participation in routine tasks, social exchanges, and even play experiences as they struggle to manage their unique needs. Whether your child is over-sensitive, under-sensitive, or a blend of the two our therapists can help assess their distinct abilities and determine the appropriate accommodations, treatment strategies, and/or complementary therapies to create a holistic plan of care.
