Sensory Integration Therapy

Sensory Integration Approach Dungannon County Tyrone

Some children are born with the limitations of an underdeveloped nervous and sensory system.   They may find movement and exploration very difficult and therefore very scary. They will present as tearful and clingy, or quiet and content to sit or lie quietly. 

These difficulties may not be apparent to you at first, however they will become more obvious over time.

You may notice the baby doesn’t like tummy time, or cries loudly with uncertain movements. You might notice they really don’t like the bath and seem to be frightened of the water.  You might even notice they don’t like the feeling of some materials against their skin, or wearing socks on their feet.

These maybe an indication they need extra support to give their nervous and sensory system a little boost in the right direction, and with some very simple, nurturing and play based therapeutic activities, the sensory system can be supported to develop.

It takes approximately 400 repetitions to create a new synapse in the brain, unless it is done in play, in which case it only takes 10 to 20 repetitions.
