Sensory integration therapy (SI) uses play-orientated sessions which include various equipment such as swings, trampolines, and even slides.
Our Tree Toppers and partnership schools also use SI techniques such as deep pressure, brushing, weighted vests, and some have swings.
It helps individuals to cope with the difficulties they have responding to their senses and environment appropriately. Sensory integration therapy challenges and stimulates the senses (touch, sound, sight, smell taste) through a range of tasks and activities. These therapies can also help calm an anxious child.
The pictures show our Aycliffe Clinic set up ready for an SI session.
