Sensory Integration by house of play
Sensory integration is a form of therapy used to focus on three basic senses – tactile, vestibular and proprioceptive. These three senses are connected with other systems in the brain and therefore critical in order for us to function in our everyday lives. The connectivity between these senses is complex but basically, they allow us to experience, interpret, and respond to different stimuli in our environment. Therefore sensory integration is important in all the things that we need to do (such as eating, getting dressed, learning, working and socialising).
This kind of therapy is esspecially effective when treating children and adults with hidden disabilities such as autism, dyspraxia and sensory processing disorder. House of Play can provide Occupational Therapists with the effective equipment to address these types of challenges including; swings, weighted products, compression, spinning, balancing and tactile products.
