Sensory Processing at Spaulding Eileen M. Ward Outpatient Center for Children Sandwich
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.
